Risks and Precautions

Summary of Warnings, Precautions and Contraindications
for the Elevate Anterior and Apical Prolapse Repair System

As with any surgical procedure, inherent risks are present. Some of the most severe risks associated with the Elevate procedure include perforation of the urethra, bladder and bowel, erosion of the mesh through neighboring tissue, and infection. If infection or erosion occur, the entire mesh may have to be removed or revised. Prolapse repair may unmask pre-existing incontinence.

For a complete list of indications, contraindications, warnings and precautions, refer to the product Instructions for Use or contact your AMS representative.
