Abstract: Pelvic floor disorders comprise a series of pathologies that the urogynecologist surgeon must correct using the latest materials and techniques developed. Stress urinary incontinece and pelvic organ prolapse are major health issues that affect the quality of life of women, all over the world. In the past years there has been a tendency to adopt synthetic and biological materials to enforce the repairs during the surgical interventions. The outcome of the surgical procedure is dictated by the properties of the material used, individual immune response and organic factors. Surgisis pelvic floor grafts are absorbable, non-crosslinked, multi-layered sheets of extracellular matrix collagen derived from porcine small intestinal subcumosa. The biomaterials used should induce a limited inflammatory response in order to achieve optimal reconstructive remodelling. The aim of this paper is to present a case report in which biological tissue grafts were used in the course of the surgical interventions in order to correct structural defects.

Keywords: reconstructive surgery, surgisis, polypropylene mesh, vaginoplasty.
