How Faulty Transvaginal Mesh Implanting Leads To Serious Complications And Conditions
Transvaginal mesh is a synthetic net-like substance–typically constructed from polypropylene plastic–that is inserted to provide support to repair a damaged vaginal wall, to support the urethra, to fix pelvic organ prolapse (POP), or to fix stress urinary incontinence (SUI).
Doctors deem the mesh to be “transvaginal” because the implant procedure goes through the vagina in what can often be a complicated, lengthy surgery–the procedure is also one that has the potential for serious problems if done improperly or if the mesh material itself is faulty.
A few of the more serious conditions linked to transvaginal mesh implant may include:
- Pain and bleeding
- Infections and scarring
- Bowel, bladder, or blood vessel perforation
- Lower back pain
- Chronic vaginal drainage
- Additional reparatory surgeries

According to a Mayo Clinic website report “Each use of mesh carries its own risks and benefits.

“In 2019, the FDA ordered manufacturers of surgical mesh for the transvaginal repair of POP to stop selling and distributing their products in the U.S.
“If you've had transvaginal mesh placed for the surgical repair of POP, continue with your routine care. If you have complications or symptoms, talk to your doctor.”
Complications reported in lawsuits against the manufacturers—which have resulted in nearly $8 billion in settlements to 100,000 women—include:
- Inflammation; and,
We believe that victims of faulty transvaginal mesh implants and their families should be able to address the doctors and institutions that were allegedly the source of the faulty surgeries and get the compensation and justice they deserve.
