What is Vaginal Mesh?
Transvaginal mesh, a simple hammock-like device used to support fallen internal organs, was once heralded as a modern repair to the age-old female problems of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and urinary incontinence caused by weak pelvic floor muscles, also called stress urinary incontinence (SUI).
But in the years it’s been used, transvaginal mesh (TVM) has caused significant injuries and ongoing problems. Once it is inserted into the pelvic area through the vagina, this flexible plastic device is known to erode into internal organs and tissue, causing injuries, scarring and infections. Research has shown that in many cases transvaginal mesh does not fix the initial problems; instead, it creates an array of new ones.
Transvaginal Mesh Complications
Women are mad. And they have every right to be so. The TVM manufacturers never tested the devices before putting them on the market. Instead, patients were used as guinea pigs. Thousands of patients like you have been implanted with TVM devices with no assurances that they would work. It’s not that these women were uneducated or unwise; they put their trust in the medical system and were lead to believe the devices were safe. And when the TVM devices failed, patients were dealt a second slap in the face. They were told their new injuries could be permanent.
Even though mesh is implanted in one piece, it can’t be removed in one piece once it has started to erode. Because the plastic quickly breaks down and bodily tissue intertwines with the fragmented pieces, doctors must pick it out piece by piece. Since there is no standardized protocol in place to remove eroded mesh, it can take several surgeries. That means more pain, suffering, time off work and medical bills.
