Based on the patient's history and physical examination it was recommended that she undergo vaginal removal of the single-incision sling and vaginal and laparoscopic removal of the RP mesh tape sling with concomitant laparoscopic paravaginal repair, posterior repair, and Burch urethropexy.
Trauma to these vessels can therefore lead to a large accumulation of blood in the paravaginal space or ischiorectal fossa, resulting in considerable delay in diagnosis.
On paravaginal examination cervix was soft high up, deviated to right side, internal os was closed, and presenting part was not felt.
For more than 100 years, gynecologic surgeons have been taught that the vaginal defects causing anterior and posterior vaginal prolapse result either from generalized midline stretching or thinning of the pubocervical fascia, or from lateral or paravaginal injuries.
The 14 chapters describe the etiology and epidemiology of urinary incontinence; selecting interventions for the diagnosed type; anatomy; standard retropubic operations, including the Burch and paravaginal repairs; bladder neck biologic pubovaginal slings and aspects of tissue harvest and selection; synthetic midurethral slings; voiding dysfunction and retention after procedures; the current status of bulking agents, especially techniques for implantation; surgical interventions for detrusor compliance abnormalities, especially sacral nerve stimulation, botulinum toxin therapy, and bladder augmentation; and the management of mixed incontinence and that associated with pelvic organ prolapse and how to avoid and manage complications related to procedures for stress incontinence.

This was followed by paravaginal repair and lastly use of synthetic mesh for correcting the defects.
