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, so there is no skin perforation. Fixed by anchors to the sacrospinous ligament and its anterior part to the internal obturator muscles by its two pockets.

There are mainly two problems related to prolapse surgical systems.

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

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

 

Which patients are MIPS Contasure 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, 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 MIPS system?

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

 

How many years can the MIPS system assure the result?

The polypropylene mesh will not disappear, so if the mesh is properly placed and the patient has followed the postsurgical protocol, the results may be stable long term.
