Transvaginal mesh implants can effectively treat POP, but the risks far outweigh the benefits of a possible treatment. In fact, mesh implants can aggravate the symptoms and conditions associated with POP. According to some sources, transvaginal mesh is less invasive and simpler than most POP treatments; however, statistics show that transvaginal mesh has the highest complication rate of any POP treatment. Two of the most serious side effects include erosion and perforation.
Erosion occurs when the mesh begins to erode the patient's vaginal wall. Erosion is not only painful, but can lead to bleeding, nerve damage, and infection. If the mesh completely passes through the vaginal tissue, it may become completely exposed.
If the mesh begins to erode the patient's vaginal wall, it could damage other pelvic organs as well. Exposed transvaginal mesh can cut or puncture nearby organs, including the bladder or bowels. This serious condition requires surgery.
