  Purpose

Robotic approach to sacral colpopexy is a relatively new procedure. The literature is scarce in regard to its long-term outcomes. This advanced procedure is offered at MMH through the Urogynecology division. The Investigators setup to review the one year outcome of patients who underwent this procedure using a polypropylene mesh. These outcomes will include anatomical and quality of life measures.

Further study details as provided by Atlantic Health System:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • 1. Objective anatomic outcomes We will use the pelvic organ prolapse quantification system (POP-Q). Objective surgical failure will be defined as any prolapse at or beyond the introitus [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • 2. Prolapse Specific Quality of Life Patients will complete a prolapse specific quality of life instrument prior to and one year after surgery. (PFIQ-7) [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • 3. Pelvic organ prolapse related symptoms (PFDI-20) [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • 4. Graft-related complications Rates of graft erosion into adjacent organs such as bowel, bladder or vagina - during the study period will be reported. [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
