The objective of this study was to estimate the anatomical and functional outcome of Prolift Anterior C. All patients presenting with symptomatic stage II or greater anterior vaginal wall prolapse were considered to enter this prospective observational study. Patient characteristics and surgical parameters were prospectively documented. Anatomical outcome, as measured by the Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantification (POP-Q) score, and functional outcome, as assessed by the King's College Health Questionnaire, was considered primary outcome measures. Complications constituted the secondary outcome measures. Fifty-one patients met the inclusion criteria, and 48 underwent a transobturator anterior vaginal wall mesh. Objective cure was realized in 46 out of 48 (95.8%) patients. Postoperatively, 5 out of 48 (10.4%) patients developed an erosion which required surgical intervention in 2 (4.3%) patients. Subjective cure was achieved in 40 out of 42 (95.2%) patients. Urgency symptoms persisted in 3 out of 21 (14%). De novo urgency and frequency developed in only 1 patient. De novo stress incontinence developed in 4 out of 30 (13%). In 9 out of 29 (31%) of sexually active patients, dyspareunia due to the prolapse was present before surgery and disappeared in all; 3 out of 20 (15%) reported de novo dyspareunia. In conclusion, we state that transobturator anterior vaginal wall mesh kits provide a surgical tool with an acceptable but real morbidity to treat anterior vaginal wall prolapse with a favorable objective and subjective outcome.
