THE SRS ANCHORLESS CONCEPT
The Self-Retaining Support (SRS) technology mimics the natural anatomy, restoring pelvic organs to their anatomical and functional location, without the complications associated with mesh anchoring.
This revolutionary technology introduces a flexible frame, which allows the mesh to remain flat and in the desired location, while providing trampoline-like support to the prolapsed pelvic organs.
DON'T ANCHOR MESH, FRAME IT.
This simple solution provides a safe, effective and long-term treatment that has been shown to surpass existing treatment options.
TECHNOLOGY AT A GLANCE
The SRS Implant leverages the advantages of surgical mesh in reinforcing weakened connective tissue and recreating supporting structures, while introducing a flexible frame that eliminates the need for fixation, which is believed to be the root cause of most post-operative complications
Titanized, ultra-lightweight surgical mesh, the thinnest, most delicate mesh on the market, proven to have enhanced bio-compatible characteristics.
Implant shape and size designed based on literature review, in-house developmental cadaver studies, and the results of a large-scale clinical study, to ensure functionality and safety.
provides support for the prolapsed organs
avoids applying pressure on surrounding
tissue, organs, nerves and large blood vessels
The implant is inserted using standard surgical tools via a trans-vaginal approach. It is positioned between the anterior vaginal wall and the bladder, and does not require blind insertion of any other surgical tools (trocars, anchoring instruments, etc.). The simple procedure enables straight-forward adoption and a short learning curve for surgeons trained in pelvic reconstructive surgery (gynecologists, urologists and urogynecologists).
SRS – CHANGING THE RULES OF THE GAME
SAFE BY DESIGN
At Lyra Medical, our only motivator has always been the quality of our product. We planned, thoroughly tested, collected vast clinical data, created training programs, developed extraction procedures, and spared no measures in creating a truly safe and efficient solution.
The SRS technology addresses, by design, the root cause of current mesh-related complications.
Inhibits Mesh Erosion
The SRS technology was designed to ensure a safe treatment that addresses the root cause of current mesh-related complications. By doing so, it inhibits Mesh Erosion – The solid frame enables the use of an extra-light (16 gr\m2), extra-thin mesh (65 µm fiber). It also retains the mesh tension and prevents it from folding, which can lead to erosion.
Prevents Mesh Contraction
Contraction occurs when scar tissue growth generates shrinkage force on the implanted mesh. The solid frame acts as an opposing mechanical force that prevents the mesh from contracting, preventing pain and improving long-term efficacy.
Reduces Risk of Bleeding & Organ Perforation
The SRS concept eliminates the need for blind insertion of surgical instruments (trocars, anchoring instruments, etc.), reducing the risk of damage to surrounding anatomical structures.
Minimizes Risk of Dyspareunia
The SRS Implant ensures bladder support without causing tension across the vagina.
Maintains Macro-Porous Mesh Structure
Due to inherent stretching during fixation, existing anchor-based implants change their mesh structure from macro-porous to micro-porous, causing various complications. With SRS, the solid frame maintains the implant’s flat orientation and the macro-porous structure of the supporting layer.

The SRS provides the ultimate implant for the treatment of anterior vaginal wall prolapse. The ease of use and the impressive anatomical and subjective outcomes are superior to any other mesh implant I have ever used. I am confident that SRS Implant will revolutionize the treatment of prolapse, the same way that TVT did in treating incontinence. I have no doubt that SRS will become the next gold standard for reconstructive pelvic surgery.
The Lyra SRS Implant is very friendly and easy to use. With an overall operating time of 12 minutes from start to finish, it’s the fastest procedure I have ever performed. So far the anatomical results are very promising.
The SRS Implant provides the most effective and safest treatment of anterior vaginal wall and apical/uterus prolapse. At first, I was skeptical as to the advantages of the SRS Implant, however, after using it for some time now, I have no doubt that the SRS Implant is superior to any other implant product offered on the market today. I am confident that by offering the SRS Implant to my patients, I am giving them the safest and most effective surgical treatment available
The simplicity of the Lyra SRS insertion makes it the most straightforward implant I have ever used. The anatomical and subjective results are very promising in comparison to mesh solutions I have used in the past, and the benefit to patients is huge.
My previous experience with vaginal mesh made the Lyra SRS Implant procedure easy to adopt. The surgery itself was short and the postoperative recovery was without any noticeable adverse events. During the follow-up visits, patients expressed their satisfaction with the outcome and the short and painless recovery period.
When you examine a happy patient with optimal anatomy three years after SRS implantation, you realize that this unique design provides perfect results even in the most advanced prolapse cases. The procedure is short, the recovery is painless and the subjective and anatomical results are superior, making it hard to use any other implant.
