Mesh Implant Erosion, Perforation, and More

Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits

Transvaginal mesh refers to a type of surgical mesh that is implanted through the vagina to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). This evolved from the mesh used in the 1950s to treat hernia repair; in the 1970s, it was used abdominally to treat POP and SUI. As the popularity of the mesh products grew, manufacturers began to sell them in kits that were ready to go with the mesh, as well as special tools and instructions. The popularity of the kits is believed to have contributed to the current problem.

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
  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • 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.
