MIPS FAQs

 INDICATIONS

 Why should doctors choose MIPS System for vaginal prolapse problems?

MIPS system is a minimally invasive device. It is placed without needles, with no skin perforation and it is adjustable every patient’s anatomy.

 

There are mainly two problems related to prolapse surgical systems.

1.- Shortened vagina: Normally all meshes shrink after its implantation. If the mesh is not fixed anteriorly and posteriorly, its shrinkage will drive to a shorter vagina.

2.- Vaginal erosions: Usually related to mesh wrinkles. If the mesh cannot be easily adjusted under direct view, surgeon may leave wrinkles that may drive to mesh vaginal erosions.

 

 

Which patients are MIPS System candidates?

All patients with anterior / posterior prolapse.

 

Is the MIPS System expensive in comparison with other vaginal prolapse solutions?

Is not expensive and the same product can be used for anterior and posterior prolapse.

 

Why is the design of MIPS System effective?

There is an adjustable fixation of the mesh at the sacrospinous ligament through a unique anchor system that minimizes mesh shrinkage and vagina longitudinal shortening. It has up to four adjustable fixation points to leave the mesh completely extended with no tension and no wrinkles to minimize future vaginal erosions.

 

SURGERY

Why these MIPS 4 points of fixation system are so relevant?

The 4 adjustable fixation points allow the surgeon to adapt the mesh to every individual patient condition.

 

 

OUTCOMES

How many days of hospitalization will the patient need?

If the surgery is done under local or regional anaesthesia, patient may leave the hospital the same day or the day after surgery.

 

 What is the most recommended post-surgical protocol to maximize the success of the MIPS system?

After hospital discharge, the patient should avoid sexual intercourse and heavy lifting during the first two months after surgery.
