Transvaginal Mesh and its Side Effects

Transvaginal mesh is a medical device created to be implanted for the purpose of reinforcing soft tissue or muscles where weakness exists, specifically for pelvic floor disorders. The surgical mesh is typically a remedy for women with pelvic organ prolapse (POP), when pelvic organs drop, or stress urinary incontinence (SUI), unintentional urine loss. Made from either animal tissue, synthetic materials, or a combination of both, the device may be absorbable or non-absorbable.

Currently, manufacturers mostly make polypropylene meshes, a non-absorbable material, and have faced lawsuits over serious complications that thousands of women have experienced when used for the treatment of POP. The well-known manufacturers include:

  • Ethicon (Johnson & Johnson)
  • American Medical Systems (AMS)
  • Boston Scientific
  • C.R. Bard

The potentially debilitating side effects women are experiencing are:

    • Mesh erosion: the device can break down into smaller pieces, while also eroding the implantation site (vaginal wall).
    • Organ perforation: the edge of the device or smaller pieces can cut through organs or surrounding tissue causing internal bleeding and possibly infection.
    • Dyspareunia: pain during intercourse.
    • Pain in pelvic region
    • Incontinence
    • Infection
    • Shortening of the vagina
    • Nerve damage
    • Vaginal scarring
    • Recurrent prolapse
    • Emotional problems

The treatment for many of the listed serious complications involves more surgery, called transvaginal mesh revision surgery. Repairing the damage and removing the mesh can take multiple surgeries to complete, often resulting in more pain and health risks for the patient.
