Prolapse meshes are associated basically to two potential problems:
1- Short vaginas. Mesh shrinkage, causes vagina’s shortage.
2- Erosion. Due to mesh wrinkles.
The Surelift Sustem is designed to minimize these two potential problems.
The Surelift has two anchors to fix the mesh at the sacrospinous ligament and avoid the displacement of the posterior part of the mesh during the shrinkage process, maintaining the vaginal length.
Also this mesh has four arms, that will help surgeon to adjust the position and avoid wrinkles. These arms pass through the obturator muscle and povide long term fixation.
The same mesh can be used for anterior, vault and posterior prolapse. To use the mesh for the posterior compartment, surgeon may cut the middle and anterior arms, fixating the mesh posteriorly to the sacrospinous ligament and anteriorly to the elevator anus muscles.
