Intestinal complications associated with use of the Dexon mesh sling in gynecologic oncology patients.


:Three cases of postoperative enterocutaneous fistula formation following use of the Dexon mesh sling are reported from two gynecologic oncology services. Two patients had intestinal trauma or bowel resection at the time of mesh placement. Postoperative submesh abscess formation was noted in only one patient. Factors which might predispose to fistula formation after mesh placement, particularly in previously radiated patients, and techniques which might be used to avoid this complication are discussed.
