Pelvic Organ Prolapse And Transvaginal Mesh Complications
Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) is a common condition that affects some post-menopausal women. To combat pelvic organ prolapse, surgical devices were recommended as a treatment. These devices were meant to be a non-invasive alternative allowing for a short recovery. However, this form of treatment has, in turn, caused multiple problems for many women that have used it.
Transvaginal mesh implants have been proven to cause many problems for women, including pain when urinating and a variety of pelvic issues. Approximately one out of every five patients that have had a transvaginal mesh implant has experienced undesirable side effects.
Some of the side effects related to transvaginal mesh implants include:
- Erosion of the mesh into the vaginal wall
- Urinary problems
- Bowel and blood vessel perforation
