What is Pelvic Mesh?
Transvaginal surgical mesh implants, also called pelvic mesh or slings, have been implanted in millions of women to repair and strengthen the walls of internal organs in the pelvic region. Generally, pelvic mesh products support organs which have dropped, fallen, bulged or protruded into the vaginal wall due to weakened or stretched muscles following childbirth, pregnancy or other event in which the internal organs have shifted. Specific injuries repaired include pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence.
How Can Pelvic Mesh Harm You?
Although the pelvic mesh is meant to act as a hammock remaining in place to protect the meshed organ and the surrounding organs, the mesh has been known to erode or extrude, resulting in prolapsed vaginal tissue or protrusions requiring multiple surgeries. Specific injuries include:
- Dyspareunia- painful sexual intercourse.
- Perforation of puncture of the bladder, intestines, bowels and/or blood vessels around the vaginal wall.
- Pelvic Organ Prolapse
- Urinary Problems.
- Vaginal pain, discharge, infections and bleeding.
