The classical surgical treatment of an anterior prolapse is the use of autologous tissue. In front of the high rate of recurrences with this technique, the use of synthetic prosthesis made their appearance. But the drawback of the use of prosthesis is their tolerability. The system Perigee®, a prosthetic kit by trans-obturator way, was designed to obtain high efficiency in the correction of the prolapse while reducing the risk of complications. The lack of prospective and randomized studies makes difficult to assess the interest. The investigators, therefore, have put in place a randomized prospective study seeking the evaluation of the system Perigee® compared to the conventional surgical technique.

Condition Intervention

Official Title: PERIGEE :Randomized Study Evaluating the Effectiveness of the Use of Prosthesis With Trans-obturator Way for the Correction of Anterior Prolapse.

  • Changes in quality of life, occurrence of complications during surgery, evolution of sexuality, onset or worsening of urinary incontinence [ Time Frame: at 3,12, 24 months ]
  • Pain after surgery [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
  • Duration of intervention [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
