Further study details as provided by Coloplast A/S:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluate efficacy of the Axis Dermis graft used for soft tissue repair, replacement, reconstruction, or augmentations in the correction of POP as assessed by POP-Q Stage improvement [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Assess change in prolapse stage from baseline [ Time Frame: 6 weeks, 6 months, 2 years, 3 years ]
    Determined by POP-Q prolapse grading

  • Patient satisfaction and quality of life measurement [ Time Frame: 6 weeks, 6 months, 2 years, 3 years ]
    Measured through patient questionnaires PFDI-20, PFIQ-7, PISQ-12, PGI-I, SSQ-8, and Pelvic and Sexual Health VAS

  • Summary of AEs graded as mild, moderate, severe possibly or related to product and/or procedure and SAEs related to product and/or procedure [ Time Frame: 3 years ]

Enrollment: 74
Study Start Date: November 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: November 30, 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date: November 30, 2018 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Axis Other: Axis
Coloplast's Axis™ Allograft Dermis consists of solvent-dehydrated, gamma-irradiated, preserved human collagen. It is restricted to homologus use as a soft tissue graft for horizontal and vertical soft tissue augmentation of thickness and length.


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
The study population will be adult female patients with pelvic organ prolapse, POP-Q Stage ≥ 2 that are clinically indicated for surgical intervention with Axis human tissue in the anterior, posterior, or combined (anterior and posterior) compartments at the institutions designated for this study.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Adult female at least 18 years of age.
  • Willing and able to provide written informed consent.
  • Confirmed pelvic organ prolapse (POP) of Stage 2 or higher as determined by POP-Q prolapse grading requiring surgical intervention in the anterior, posterior or combined (anterior and posterior) compartment.
  • Willing and able to complete all follow-up visits and procedures indicated in this protocol.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Concurrent surgical treatment of pelvic organ prolapse using anything other than the Axis Dermis.[Note: concurrent mid-urethral sling placement for treatment of stress urinary incontinence is allowed].
  • Confirmed Stage 2 or higher prolapse as determined by POP-Q prolapse grading for a compartment that is not being repaired in the same procedure. (Concurrent POP-Q Stage 1 repair is at the physician's discretion.)
  • Previous pelvic organ prolapse repair using biologic, or synthetic grafts. [Note: previous midurethral sling for treatment of stress urinary incontinence is allowed]
  • Pregnant or a desire to become pregnant in the future.
  • Previous radiation or other treatments for cancer in the pelvic area.
  • Severe urogenital atrophy.
  • Immunosuppression and/or current systemic steroid user.
  • Any contraindication to the surgical procedure.
