Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) can occur simultaneously with anterior vaginal prolapse (AVP) in up to 30% of patients. We studied a monoprosthesis that combines prepubic and transobturator arms for simultaneous treatment of AVP and SUI.One hundred four women with AVP underwent surgical treatment using a monoprosthesis (NAZCA TCA (R)). POP-Q was used for anatomical evaluation. Functional results were evaluated by quality of life questionnaires, stress test and Stamey score. Patients were evaluated at 1, 3, 6 and 12 months postoperatively.There were significant and sustained improvements in points Aa, Ba and C. Positive stress test was observed in 29.8% preoperatively and decreased to 1.9% after 12 months. There was no significant impact in sexual symptoms. Mesh exposure was noted in 5.7% of patients.Monoprosthesis with combined prepubic and transobturator arms presented high success rates for AVP repair and simultaneous SUI treatment. It has also been shown to be safe and appears to preserve sexual function.
