In recognition for their expertise and interest in pelvic organ prolapse surgery, Associate Professor Alan Lam’s Centre for Advanced Reproductive Endosurgery (CARE) Lam was invited to participate in the multicentre international Restorelle® Transvaginal Mesh Versus Native Tissue Repair for Treatment of Pelvic Organ Prolapse, Restorelle 522 Study.
The purpose of this study is to collect information on the safety and effectiveness of Restorelle Direct Fix mesh and the surgical procedure to implant Restorelle. These results will be compared to the safety and effectiveness results in patients who have native tissue repair (without mesh) as their pelvic organ prolapse treatment.
