Laparoscopic treatment of a chronic mesh infection 4 years after sacral colpopexy
In this video, we present the case of a late infectious complication after abdominal hysterectomy and sacral colpopexy using mesh interposition. We demonstrate the complete laparoscopic removal of the infected mesh, including excision of all the affected surrounding tissue. This is the case of a 57-year-old patient who had a total hysterectomy with bilateral adnexectomy and sacrocolpopexy in 2005. In 2009, she started to complain of an abundant, continuous and smelly vaginal discharge. The microbiological exam revealed a vaginal infection by Proteus mirabilis and the gynecologic examination showed a painful vaginal tumor with a drainage hole.
