Brief Summary

National, multicentre observational study on surgical reconstruction of the anterior and apical compartment of the pelvic floor with an SRS implant

Condition or DiseaseIntervention/TreatmentPhase

    Detailed Description

    National, multicentre, prospective observational study on surgical reconstruction of the anterior and apical compartment in seven clinical centres in Germany to obtain post-market information on the SRS implant with a follow-up of 24 months. Patient reported satisfaction (measured by P QoL, Prolapse Quality of Life Questionnaire), anatomic outcome (measured by the POP-Q, Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantification system) and the rate of complications (measured by adverse events during the study period) are focused.

    Arms and Interventions

    SRS implant

    Surgical reconstruction of the anterior and apical compartment of the pelvic floor with an SRS implant

    Outcome Measures

    Primary Outcome Measures

    1. Patient´s Quality of Life [12 months]

      Evaluation of changes in quality of life twelve months after implantation of the SRS implant compared to baseline. Quality of Life was assessed by the P-QOL (Prolapse Quality of Life Questionnaire). The P-QOL yields a domain score in the range from zero to 100, wheras a score of zero is the best.
