Vaginal Mesh History
During the 1990′s, vaginal mesh grew to become a popular treatment in transvaginal pelvic repair for POP and SUI. By surgically inserting a vaginal mesh medical device, the surgery offered to patients the lure of minimally invasive options as an alternate to traditional vaginal surgeries. Yet, recent data from FDA officials has concluded that these mesh procedures may have extremely harmful outcomes for mesh injury victims — placing them at extreme risk for transvaginal mesh erosion, pelvic pain, requirement for multiple revision surgeries, as well as the rare circumstances leading to death.

Vaginal Mesh: Overview
Pelvic organ prolapse (known by the term POP) refers to the condition where muscles and pelvic tissue weaken, sag or stretch, which in turn causes pelvic organs to protrude or bulge out of their place into the wall of the vagina. On the other hand, SUI (stress urinary incontinence) happens when urine leaks as a result of physical activity. The kinds of activity that induce this leakage may include sneezing, coughing, exercise or laughing.
Surgical mesh is a single option out of multiple treatments used for pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. FDA approved the first of many surgical mesh devices to treat SUI in 1996. 2002 brought the first approval for surgical mesh on behalf of pelvic organ prolapse.
Vaginal mesh for POP involves the insertion of transvaginal mesh integrated via tiny stitches made within vaginal walls. This is done to reinforce vaginal walls for the weakened wall and to strengthen and pull up bulging pelvic organs. For stress urinary incontinence repair, the vaginal mesh is used in method as a vaginal sling for the support of the woman’s urethra.
During 2010, the Food & Drug Administration reports around 300,000 patients who underwent the procedures for repair of pelvic organ prolapse. Overall, 260,000 of the patients had the procedure for repair of SUI. One in three pelvic organ prolapse surgeries utilized mesh, with 75 percent of the vaginal mesh pelvic organ prolapse procedures being performed transvaginally. For stress urinary incontinence procedures, four in five were performed transvaginally with surgical mesh.
Unfortunately, 2008 brought an FDA warning as more information became available regarding dangerous vaginal mesh complications. Again in 2011, the Food & Drug Administration warned regarding possible negative side effects from surgically implanted mesh.
Some of the most typical complications for mesh include vaginal erosion through the vaginal wall (also referred to as protrusion, exposure, or extrusion), as well as severe pain, infection, dyspareunia, problems urinating, vaginal bleeding, and perforation of organs or blood vessels. Additional adverse reports indicated incontinence, prolapse, neuro-muscular complications, vaginal shrinkage, vaginal scarring, as well as serious emotional distress. Many symptoms necessitated hospitalization as well as followup revision procedures, many of which even required the removal of vaginal tissue and flesh.
