New solutions for the diagnosis and correction of Pelvic Organ Prolapse

29 March 2021 Project Sheet
INEGI's Contribution
  • Create diagnostic and corrective solutions for Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) in the early stages, thus preventing its progression and avoiding major surgeries and associated complications
  • Develop and demonstrate an alternative technique to conventional surgery with synthetic mesh, in the form of biodegradable mesh wires applied to the vaginal wall, to reinforce and correct the defect.
  • Develop a minimally invasive intravaginal pressure (IVP) measuring device that allows the study of the vaginal condition and the development of prolapse in the early stages

  • Proof of concept of a minimally invasive real-time prototype intravaginal pressure measurement (IVP) in an animal model.
  • Proof of concept of a new minimally invasive prolapse technique using commercially available gear wires in an animal model.
  • Manufacture of assorted gear wires using 3D fusion electrospinning technology.
  • Adaptation of a computational 3D vaginal model to simulate anterior and posterior compartment prolapse and analyze the effectiveness of the proposed Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) correction technique.
