Surelift System - FAQs

 

 

INDICATIONS

 

Why should doctors choose Surelift System for vaginal prolapse problems?
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.

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 Contasure System candidates?
All patients with anterior and/or posterior and/or apical or vault prolapse.

Is Surelift System expensive in comparison with other vaginal prolapse solutions?
Is not expensive and the same product can be used for anterior, posterior, or apical prolapse.

Why is the design of Surelift 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. Has 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 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 Surelift?
After hospital discharge, the patient should avoid sexual intercourse and stress efforts during the first two months after surgery.

How many years can the Surelift 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.
