A unique case of late complication of rectum mesh erosion after laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy.
Urol Int. 2014; 92(3):363-5.UI

Abstract

Sacrocolpopexy, a surgical technique with a low morbidity rate, is a valid procedure for repairing vaginal vault prolapse. To our knowledge, only 1 case of rectum erosion after open sacrocolpopexy has been reported in the literature, and there is no record of any such incident after laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy. We report the first case of mesh erosion involving the rectum instead of the vagina assessed 8 years after laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy.
