Abstract

Type I polypropylene mesh have been widely used in gynaecologic surgery for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. Such devices produced positive results compared to the equivalent non-mesh-based operation but erosions into adjacent viscera, especially the vagina, have also been reported. We describe the case of bladder erosion that manifested two years after the initial cystocele repair surgery and the management adopted.
