OBJECTIVE: To report the efficacy and complications of anterior pelvic organ prolapse (POP) repair with mesh placed through the transobturator route (Perigee system; AMS, Minnetonka, MN, USA). ----- METHODS: In total, 198 women with anterior POP grade II or higher according to the POP Quantification (POP-Q) system were treated with the Perigee procedure. The primary outcome was defined as anterior POP grade I or lower at 12months' follow-up. The secondary outcomes included the incidences of perioperative, mesh-related, short-term, and long-term postoperative complications. ----- RESULTS: The cure rate was 92.9% overall and 90.6% among women who had previously undergone a hysterectomy or a traditional anterior colporrhaphy. The mean POP-Q Aa and Ba values were significantly improved after the procedure (Aa 2.2cm [0.0 to 3.0cm] versus -2.1cm [-3.0 to -1.2cm]; Ba -2.5cm [-1.0 to 4.2cm] versus -2.2cm [-5.5 to -1.0cm]; P<0.001). Vaginal or bladder erosions were observed in 3 patients. Other short- and long-term complications were infrequent and not statistically significant. ----- CONCLUSION: The Perigee procedure is effective in the treatment of anterior POP and does not have serious complications even among women with previous hysterectomy or traditional anterior colporrhaphy.
