Surelift System - FAQs

 

INDICATIONS

 

1.- Shortened vaginas: are related to the mesh shrinkage. If the mesh is not fixed anteriorly and posteriorly, its shrinkage may drive to a shorter vagina.

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

The Surelift system is the only mesh, developed after large experience, that has anterior and posterior fixation and 6 adjustment points under direct view to allow the surgeon avoid wrinkles and potential erosions.

 

Which patients are Surelift System candidates?
All patients with anterior and/or posterior and/or apical or vault prolapse.

Is the Surelift System design effective?
There is an adjustable fixation of the mesh at the sacrospinous ligament through a unique anchor system that minimizes mesh shrinkage effect and vaginal longitudinal shortening. The Surelift have up to six adjustable fixation points to leave the mesh completely extended with no tension and no wrinkles to minimize future vaginal erosions.

 

SURGERY

Why these Surelift 6 points of fixation system are so relevant?
The 6 adjustable fixation points allows the surgeon to adapt the mesh to every individual patient anatomy.

 

OUTCOMES

How many days of hospitalization will the patient need?
If the surgery is done under local or regional anaesthesia, patient can 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 Surelift?
After hospital discharge, the patient should avoid sexual intercourse and heavy lifting during the first two months after surgery.
