Abstract

The transobturator polypropylene mesh system is a new approach in the surgical treatment of anterior vaginal wall prolapse. We report the case of a 57-year-old woman who developed a vesicovaginal fistula with erosion of the mesh into the bladder and vagina after Perigee transobturator, polypropylene mesh anterior repair. This is a serious complication associated with this technique. Treatment required an open vesicovaginal fistula repair with excision of the exposed and nearby surrounding mesh.
