What is transvaginal Mesh?
A transvaginal surgical mesh is a medical device used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. It is made from porous absorbable or non-absorbable synthetic material or absorbable biologic material. The surgical mesh is permanently implanted to reinforce the weakened vaginal wall.

Vaginal Mesh Complications
Surgically-implanted devices used to alleviate or repair certain conditions must meet FDA approval prior to use. However, many unsafe devices are being rushed through the FDA approval process when manufacturers pay the FDA for quick approvals. This can lead to injury or death when the devices fail.
One such device is the vaginal mesh. A vaginal mesh is a screen implanted in the abdomen of women who have experienced muscle weakening due to childbirth or other conditions. The mesh is designed to support the lower intestines, preventing urinary and intestinal problems.
However, vaginal mesh procedures have proven to have a long and disturbing catalog of physical problems associated with them. Many women have been the victim of improper implantation, while others have experienced excruciating pain when the mesh fails to support the lower abdomen. This often causes emotional embarrassment and shame that compounds the physical agony.
Many faulty vaginal mesh designs have been pushed through the FDA approval process by manufacturers such as Johnson & Johnson and Boston Scientific Corp. This negligence and unadulterated greed has resulted in physical harm to many innocent women, who now deal with the side effects of these unsafe mechanisms.
