Abstract

Fifty-two women with vault prolapse underwent infracoccygeal sacropexy. There was a mesh erosion incidence of 21.1% at a mean time of 20 weeks. This rate is higher than the rates for single-filament meshes used for suburethral slings. This study suggests that multifilament meshes should no longer be used due to the unacceptably high erosion rate.
