Major health issues after TVM implant


To treat the pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and urinary incontinence (SUI) in women, mesh insertion is one of the most common and preferred procedures in the U.S. Over 3.7 million meshes have been sold globally within 2005 and 2013 and the complications of surgical mesh procedures have remained a subject of legal debate since then.

The transvaginal mesh complications include but not limited to:

  • urinary problems
  • vaginal scarring
  • mesh erosion
  • infection in the operated region
  • bladder and bowel perforation
  • bleeding from vaginal region
  • unusual discharge of vaginal fluids
  • difficulty in sitting or standing for long time

The only medical way to cure the mesh erosion is to have corrective surgeries which in turn make worsen the situation. Moreover, there are high chances of the original POP or SUI condition to relapse once the mesh is removed. Being a net like substance, it is difficult o clear off all the broken particles in one corrective surgery. Recurrent insertion creates a chance of infection and pain. It seems a far fetched dream to have a normal life.

The manufacturing companies failed to warn the patients and the physicians enough about the possible side effects of the mesh. Also, they kept on misbranding and misrepresenting about the effectiveness of the device which in reality was different. The lawsuits filed against the companies claim for financial compensation of the medical expenses and other related costs.
