Study Design

Intervention model single group assignment
Masking open label
Primary purpose treatment
Women with a symptomatic genital descensus: at least stage II (ICS-classification according Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantification System (POP-Q system)). This applies to primary as well as recurrent intervention. Standard method to implant the TiLOOP® PRO A surgical mesh transvaginally.
tiloop® pro a (surgical mesh implant)
The standard operation method for the surgical repair of anterior prolapse is via the obturator membrane. The mesh is placed trans-vaginal using the TiLOOP® Application Set to place the mesh arms.

Additional Information

Official title National, Multicentre Post Market Surveillance Study on Anterior Pelvic Prolapse Reconstruction With a Titanium-coated Polypropylene Mesh (TiLOOP® PRO A)
Principal investigator Christian Fünfgeld, Dr. med.
Description This multicentre, non-randomized, observational clinical investigation will be performed to obtain usability and post-marketing information on the TiLOOP® pelvic floor reconstruction meshes and in particular to obtain the improvement of patients' quality of life. It is expected that the patient's quality of life is meliorated after implantation of a TiLOOP® PRO A mesh. To verify this, it will be shown that by means of a validated questionnaire the subjective quality of life after 12 months is significantly better than before implantation.
