A transvaginal mesh is a synthetic sling-like mesh and is used to strengthen the muscles of the loosened pelvis. It is most usually prescribed for women who experience weakening of the pelvic muscles due to aging and childbirth. As a result of the weakening, the pelvic organs such as the bladder and uterus are not supported well enough and start to descend and apply pressure on the vaginal wall. It leads to severe pain and discomfort in women, and can lead to conditions such as Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) and Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP).
But these meshes have been linked with many health hazards. The most common transvaginal mesh complications reported in the lawsuits are the following but not limited to:
Between 2005 and 2008, the FDA received a number of complaints and in response the FDA issued a public health notice highlighting the complications arising from the use of a transvaginal mesh.
In 2008 (updated in 2011), the Food and Drug Administration issued an advice regarding the health complications arising from TVM implants. According to the FDA, the complications aren’t rare and might need extensive medical treatment. In addition, many patients have experienced the relapse of POP or SUI as a result of the defective mesh implant, putting the effectiveness of the procedure to be called into question.
Organ perforation is one of the most common transvaginal mesh complications. Patients who experience mesh erosion or organ perforation might need extensive treatment, blood transfusions, IV therapy, and drainage of hematomas or abscesses.
