Introduction and hypothesis Vaginal mesh kits are increasingly used in the management of pelvic organ prolapse. This study aimed to determine similarity of outcomes of the Anterior Prolift® with Perigee® systems for anterior compartment prolapse.
Methods Consecutive women undergoing Perigee® or Anterior Prolift® for symptomatic stage 2 or greater anterior vaginal prolapse were prospectively evaluated. Main outcome measures included objective and subjective success rates, perioperative outcomes, patient satisfaction, and complications.
Results One hundred and six women (Prolift, 52; Perigee, 54) completed questionnaires, and 91 (Prolift, 46; Perigee, 45) were examined postoperatively. At follow-up (Prolift: median, 11.0; range, 5–23 months; Perigee: median, 11.5; range, 6–23 months), objective success rates (Prolift, 89%; Perigee, 80%; p=0.23), subjective success rates (Prolift, 94%; Perigee, 96%; p=0.62), mean ± SD patient satisfaction (Prolift, 8.2±2.0; Perigee, 8.2±1.8; p=0.91), and complication rates did not differ significantly between the two groups.
Conclusions The Anterior Prolift® was found to not differ significantly from Perigee® at 11 months.
