Transvaginal mesh is a medical device designed to support the pelvic organs in women who require surgical repair for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or stress urinary incontinence (SUI).
POP repair involves transvaginal mesh being implanted into the vaginal wall, reinforcing it, in order to hold the surrounding organs in place. When the surgical mesh is used for treatment of SUI, it is placed at the neck of the bladder or the urethra.
Although intended as a longer-lasting treatment for POP and SUI that was also less-invasive, transvaginal mesh has been linked to an increasing number of serious adverse complications.

Each surgery a patient undergoes puts her at a higher risk of developing more serious complications, by exposing them to infection, further scarring, and possibly permanent damage.
