Manufactured from biological or more commonly, synthetic materials, transvaginal mesh is a surgical device introduced in the late 1990s as a treatment for POP and SUI. When utilized as a treatment for POP, the mesh is implanted into the vaginal wall to prevent pelvic organs from moving away from their normal position and dropping or bulging into the vagina. Women often have pelvic organs drop due to weakened supporting muscles or tissue, commonly caused multiple childbirths, abdominal surgery, or aging. The condition SUI is an unintentional loss of urine while participating in physical activities, as simple as normal exercise or coughing. To repair, the transvaginal mesh also called a bladder sling in this situation, is situated at the neck of the bladder or the urethra to prevent incontinence.
Due to thousands of reported serious side effects, the FDA disseminated a safety communication in 2008 and again in 2011. The most commonly associated side effects include:
