Sacralcolpopexy Mesh Complications: Mesh Erosion in Bladder or Rectum

This is a very rare complication and in Drs. Miklos and Moore’s series of over 400 laparoscopic sacralcolpopexies, this did not occur. However, it may occur on a rare occasion and if so the mesh will need to be removed from the bowel and/or bladder. If it has eroded into the bowel a temporary colostomy may be required as well. If it is in the bladder, typically Drs. Miklos and Moore can remove this laparoscopically with only a 23 hour stay.
