Have You Suffered An Injury After Receiving a Transvaginal Mesh Implant?

The vaginal mesh is a semi-permeable barried implanted surgically through the vagina to keep internal organs in place. They are typically used to treat female Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) and Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP).

“Vaginal sling,” or “bladder sling,” procedures are often used to treat pelvic organ prolapse- a condition in which a woman’s reproductive organs fall into or through her vaginal opening. The front wall of the vagina, which supports the bladder, can weaken or loosen with age or significant bodily stress such as childbirth. During prolapse, the bladder descends into the vagina and may trigger problems such as urinary difficulties, discomfort, and stress incontinence (urine leakage by sneezing, coughing, etc).

Approximately 750,000 transvaginal surgical mesh patches were implanted each year.  The patches are designed so that they can be folded when inserted and then spring open to lay flat once in place.

An initial recall was announced in December 2005, but additional mesh products were not added to the recall until March 2006 and January 2007.  The FDA has classified the mesh since the product carries a reasonable probability of causing serious adverse health complications, including death because of the piercing of the broken mesh or coils through body organs.

Common complications are as follows:

  • Infection
  • Erosion of the mesh into the vagina
  • Urinary problems
  • Pelvic pain
  • Vaginal pain
  • Hardening of the vaginal mesh
  • Corrective surgeries
  • Injury to nearby organs
  • Difficulty during sex after vaginal surgery
  • Destroyed marital relations
