Doctors developed transvaginal mesh implants to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Both of these are serious conditions that commonly affect women after childbirth or menopause. Unfortunately, transvaginal mesh implants exacerbate POP symptoms, and cause many serious health problems for women, including organ perforation and tissue erosion. In fact, most physicians have stopped transvaginal mesh procedures and no longer stock related products.
Unfortunately, many women underwent this procedure before the negative side effects became commonly known. If you’ve suffered injuries and health complications due to transvaginal mesh products, contact The Daspit Law Firm.

Transvaginal mesh implants are considered the most dangerous POP treatment with the highest rate of medical complications. While transvaginal mesh implants initially treat POP and SUI, they don’t necessarily stop the symptoms from reoccurring. Over time, a woman’s vaginal wall begins to erode as internal tissues grow into the mesh. Erosion is incredibly painful, and leads to internal bleeding and nerve damage. A woman may experience organ perforation if the mesh becomes exposed beyond the vaginal wall. Nearby organs, including the bladder and bowels, can be damaged and cut by the exposed mesh.
Other common transvaginal mesh side effects include:
Women must undergo surgeries to remove the implanted mesh and fix the original prolapse. In this procedure, surgeons work to repair damaged internal tissues and remove as much of the mesh as possible. This surgery becomes more complicated if organ perforation has occurred.
