Surgisis® Soft Tissue Graft for pelvic organ prolapse repair


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients in need of transvaginal surgical repair of primary (i.e., de novo) pelvic organ prolapse.
  • POPQ = stage 2 or 3 in the vaginal compartment with the leading edge of prolapse (i.e., more severe prolapse)
  • At least one symptom associated with prolapse (e.g., any of the following including but not limited to vaginal bulge, vaginal pain/discomfort, voiding dysfunction, manual reduction (digitation) needed for defecation, fecal incontinence, dyspareunia)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Age < 18 years
  • BMI > 40
  • Not medically fit for transvaginal surgery under general or spinal anesthesia
  • Active UTI at the time of the index procedure as determined by urine culture
  • Vaginal atrophy (Note: Patient may be included after vaginal atrophy has been effectively treated.)
  • Prior placement of synthetic mesh or biologic graft for pelvic organ prolapse
  • A history of cervical, ovarian, uterine, endometrial, vaginal, vulval, colon, rectal or bladder cancer
  • Currently planned obliterative surgical repair for pelvic organ prolapse
  • Systemic infection at the time of surgery
  • Requires chronic immunosuppressive therapy, including steroids or cytotoxic agents
  • Pregnant, breastfeeding or planning pregnancy during the study period
  • Previous diagnosis of collagen disorder (i.e., Marfan's, Ehlers-Danlos)
  • Physical allergies or cultural objections to the receipt of porcine products
  • Life expectancy of less than 12 months
  • Ongoing participation in an investigational device or drug trial
  • Currently undergoing evaluation or treatment for chronic pelvic pain (e.g., pain as a result of interstitial cystitis, endometriosis, vulvodynia, pelvic congestion syndrome)
  • Active vaginal infection at the time of the index procedure
  • History of pelvic inflammatory disease
