- Scar tissue accumulation causes the mesh to fold, bulk and contract, significantly increasing the probability of post-operative pain, dyspareunia, mesh erosion and prolapse reoccurrence. Reducing the tension applied on the mesh at the fixation points has been shown to resolve symptoms in 90% of patients1.
- Past techniques that did not involve anchoring (such as graft augmented colporrhaphy – mesh reinforced native-tissue repair, and J&J’s Prosima Pelvic Mesh) did not involve pelvic pain.
LET’S FACE MESH
At Lyra Medical, we understand that these complications stem mainly from the need to anchor transvaginal mesh into the pelvic structure, regardless of the specific anchoring technique used. Literature supporting this conclusion clearly shows that:

EXISTING SOLUTION DRAWBACKS
OPEN YOUR MIND, OVERCOME FIXATION
With the understanding that it is not the mesh, but the anchoring, that is responsible for the risks involved in the transvaginal approach, we have developed an anchorless implant that eliminates all fixation-related complications.
