What is Transvaginal Mesh?
Transvaginal mesh is a net-like surgical implant used in women with serious complications such as pelvic organ prolapse. The mesh itself is made from a combination of materials, including a plastic called polypropylene. There are four different categories of transvaginal mesh that depend on the type of material used and how they react inside of the body.
Side Effects of Transvaginal Mesh
Most women who undergo a transvaginal mesh operation return home the same day with periodic bleeding for a little while after surgery. However, in 2011 the FDA had received 4,000 complaints of complications related to transvaginal mesh since 2004. Dangerous side effects of transvaginal mesh operations include erosion of the implant, infection, and recurring pelvic organ prolapse or incontinence.
