What is POP?
Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) is the detachment of one or more of the pelvic floor organs through the vaginal canal. This is a condition that affects millions of women worldwide. Its causes can be diverse: childbirth, previous surgery, a hysterectomy (removal of the uterus), etc. This problem, which seriously affects the daily life of an important part of the female population on the planet, has a solution. The only problem that medical professionals face is the difficulty for many patients to tell their doctor the existence of this condition, which leads to ensure that there, are a great number of women around the world suffering in silence POP.
The real solution for POP
In recent years, Neomedic International started to offer a solution for prolapse, to rebuild the tissues of the pelvic floor and return to its original position. This is the reason why they started designing and manufacturing the Surelift System.
Devoted to its innovative and nonconformist spirit, Neomedic has launched a new solution to vaginal prolapse. It is a mesh based in the Surelift System, but this time in an even less invasive surgical version.
The Minimally Invasive Prolapse System (MIPS) is the same concept as Surelift but without skin incisions. It has the same capacity to reach the sacrospinous ligament and to provide a reliable fixation. Instead of having four arms (such as those having Surelift which are passed through the tissues and skin), MIPS has only two. Those two arms are finished in a pocket (like Needleless System for the treatment of female urinary incontinence), so it doesn’t use needles in its implementation and it is set within the obturator muscle, thus give stability that other products against vaginal prolapse are not able to offer.
MIPS is composed of a polypropylene mesh with two arms and two posterior anchor
points. Once implanted, the pelvic floor is reinforced by the fibrotic tissue that is created through and around the mesh. Subsequent anchor points are used to attach the mesh to the sacrospinous ligament. Previous arms are passed through the endopelvic fascia to the internal obturator muscle.
So far, many solutions designed for the treatment of POP and in theory designed to improve the quality of life of patients have failed to yield results entirely favorable. (Read this article, published in the journal Bloomberg, which clearly details the scandal caused by faulty meshes of some companies in the U.S.). Surelift system has proved to offer better results.
The main features of MIPS are:
– It is adaptable to any shape and size of the pelvis
– It Offers four solid and permanent attachment points
– It is adjustable in length and width.
– It is a versatile mesh: one mesh for anterior + apical prolapse or apical + posterior.
– It is an adjustable solution to repair the pelvic floor of all patients
– MIPS mesh has smoothed edges avoid injuries during implantation of the mesh.
