Complications of Transvaginal Mesh
Unfortunately, this product is not without its problems. In fact, it was reported by the FDA in 2011 that it had received 4,000 reports of complications. In 2008, the agency had reported that such complications were rare; however, it was updated just three years later to say that they were not rare at all.
Some of the complications associated with transvaginal mesh include the following:
- Mesh erosion
- Organ perforation
- Recurrence of POP or SUI
- Vaginal scarring
- Vaginal shrinkage
- Painful sexual intercourse
- Nerve damage
Worse, because the mesh was designed to stay in the body forever, removal can be extremely difficult—especially if scar tissue and blood vessels have begun to grow around the mesh. This can require multiple surgeries to remove it in pieces and has required specialized transvaginal mesh revision surgeries.
