Prolapse prosthetic treatments by French company Aspide Medical allow for mini-invasive surgery and better results
Prolapse is a condition that affects many women. Many cases are mild and cause little or no discomfort. However, women who suffer from more significant prolapse problems often encounter issues that greatly affect their quality of life on a daily basis. Besides general pain and discomfort, these women may experience embarrassing urine leakage when coughing or sneezing, difficulty with bowel movements or pain during sexual intercourse.
What causes prolapse problems?
Connective tissue separates the pelvic organs. The tissue, called fascia, is attached to nearby muscles. When healthy, the fascia and muscles support the bladder, vagina and rectum. Defects in the fascia can cause prolapse problems known as cystoceles (located between the bladder and vagina) and rectoceles (located between the vagina and rectum). Like hernia, cystocles and rectocles involve tissue that bulges or protrudes into an area where it does not belong. In this case, the breach occurs in the walls between the vagina and bladder or rectum. These can be damaged by one or more of the following factors: difficult vaginal births, multiple births
problems during delivery or the use of episiotomy during birth. However, factors unrelated to childbirth can also cause or aggravate the problem. These include strain from lifting heavy objects, chronic cough, chronic constipation or the weakening of vaginal muscles caused by a lack of estrogen after menopause.
Treatment of Prolapse Problems
Activity Modification is the first suggestion of most doctors. This includes avoiding heavy lifting Kegel exercises (squeezing the pelvic floor muscles) to help to strengthen the muscles around the vagina and bladder. For rectocele doctors often suggest a diet that allows for easy passage of stools by adding fiber, liquids, and a stool softener if necessary.
In cases where these lifestyle changes do not produce relief, surgical repair is another option. Until recent years, this surgery was only partially effective, as patients often developed recurring problems when resuming normal activities and reinjuring themselves by coughing or straining to lift heavy objects. However, the use of advanced surgical mesh technology has greatly increased the success of prolapse operations.
The Miracle of Mesh – Hope for Prolapse Sufferers
Mesh reinforcement is used with the aim of reducing the risk of recurrence of the prolapse. The mesh has many holes within it to allow the body’s own tissue to grow into the mesh. The mesh then provides a framework of support. It may provide a longer lasting repair and has been shown to be successful in 80% of people. Mesh is a synthetic material and is permanent, and has been extensively used in surgery, especially in hernia repairs.
SURGIMESH®PROLAPSE from Aspide Medical of France is a range of safe and efficient prosthetic devices for a surgical treatment of prolapse problems. Developed to correct cystoceles and rectoceles, among other conditions, each one of Aspide’s surgical devices includes a sling and specific tools corresponding to the operating technique chosen by the surgeon. There are solutions that are optimized for abdominal surgery (coelioscopy) and for a vaginal option that does not require an abdominal incision.
The SURGIMESH®PROLAPSE range of products was designed in partnership with surgeons’ teams. The mesh is composed essentially of monofilament polypropylene knitting, a solution particularly adapted to the surgical treatment of cystoceles and rectocele. The newest knit dimensions are 0,08mm. Many precut shapes are available for coelioscopic use, as well as to open surgery allowing treatment of all pathologies.
Surgical repair of the cystocele or rectocele can result in improved bladder or bowel control. Patients find that they no longer have problems with stress incontinence and can resume activities they did not feel comfortable doing before. Surgery can also relieve pain they may have experienced during sexual intercourse.
Aspide Medical, founded in 1994, is a world leader in textile surgical implants. The Surgimesh® range, developed in partnership with surgeons includes implants for for digestive, urological and gynecological surgery.
