ARE YOU SUFFERING FROM POP?

Do you feel pressure in your pelvis that doesn’t go away?

Do you feel pain or discomfort during intercourse?

Do you feel as though something is bulging out of your vagina?

You may be suffering from a very common condition called Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP).

A COMMON, TREATABLE CONDITION

POP is a treatable condition in which organs in the pelvic region drop out of their natural position and “prolapse” into the vaginal canal.

Ironically, despite being very common amongst women, especially those who have given birth, and despite the physical and emotional discomfort it causes, POP is not a well-known condition.

For this reason, we have chosen to share basic information about POP, and our transformative new approach to treating it.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT POP

What is Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP)?

Natural childbirth causes a trauma to the pelvic organs and is the most common risk factor for prolapse. Statistics show that as many as 50% of women who have given birth once or multiple times have some degree of genital prolapse, and between 10% and 20% experience symptoms that may require surgery. Each year, approximately 7 million women are candidates for surgical POP repair in the US and Europe alone, and over 700,000 women undergo surgical repair to treat this condition.

How has POP been treated in the past?

In the last two decades, synthetic mesh implants were introduced for the transvaginal repair of POP. While the viability of mesh support was proven successful, there were significant drawbacks to the different techniques used to position the implant in the optimal location. With the aim of restoring physiological relationships and functions, mesh implants were anchored to the pelvic structure, causing a variety of complications, including mesh erosion and contraction that causes pain and discomfort, infections, urinary dysfunctions, pain during intercourse and even organ perforation. These complications made anchored transvaginal implants too risky, and many products were subsequently removed from the market.
Lyra has developed the first anchorless mesh implant for the safe, effective treatment of POP.

How is Lyra’s SRS Implant different?

The difference between existing techniques and Lyra’s breakthrough concept is in the shape of the implant and in its Self-Retaining Support (SRS) technology. These two aspects enable an anchorless implantation, which in turn reduces adverse effects and the risk of recurrence.
Unlike other POP repair solutions, Lyra’s SRS Implant mimics the natural anatomy, restoring pelvic organs to their anatomical and functional location.

Is the SRS Implant suitable for me?

Contact a local physician to find out more about treatment options based on the SRS Implant.

You may also be a suitable candidate for one of the clinical trials currently underway. For more information, please contact us at info@lyramedical.com.
