Abstract

Introduction and hypothesis: We present a pure transvaginal approach to the removal of eroded mesh and a retained foreign body involving the bladder secondary to placement of transvaginal mesh for management of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) using a mesh kit. Methods: Transvaginal excision of mesh erosion involving the bladder after mesh placement using a prolapse kit was performed. A U-shaped incision was made in the anterior vaginal wall; mesh was identified, divided in the midline, and then dissected from the bladder. Additionally, a retained foreign body was removed from the bladder. The bladder was closed in three layers transvaginally. Results: Removal of eroded mesh and foreign body within the bladder was completed with all operative steps performed transvaginally. Follow-up cystogram was normal. There were no postoperative complications. Conclusions: Transvaginal removal of mesh erosion and retained foreign body involving the bladder is feasible and allows for rapid return to normal function.
