Abstract

Summary The article presents the results of treatment and management of certain selected complications following urogynecological operations with the use of synthetic materials. The study group consisted of 76 women with vaginal wound healing problem after surgical treatment of POP with the use of polypropylene monofilament mesh: vaginal erosion (44), protrusion of the mesh (18), vaginal granulation (14) – after surgical treatment of Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) with the use of polypropylene monofilament mesh. The article describes the applied methods of treatment of the abovementioned complications, as well as their effectiveness. The conservative way of treatment was found to be the best way of treating vaginal granulation, partial removal of the synthetic material proved to be the best method of treating vaginal erosion, whereas in case of mesh protrusion – total polypropylene prosthesis removal was necessary.
