What exactly is transvaginal mesh?
Transvaginal mesh is a synthetic net-like substance which is used to treat women suffering from pelvic organ prolapse or urine inconsistency. The affliction can occur in women of all ages debilitating the quality of everyday life by making exercise, sex or even urinating literally impossible.
The major reason to use the transvaginal mesh in surgery is to give a better suspension of the vaginal wall.
Before transvaginal mesh, physicians had a traditional procedure called native tissue repair where they used absorbable sutures. But with more than 30% failure rate, medical professionals were looking for a better alternative to correct incontinence. In the early 2000s, the mesh procedure was given a trial.
Unfortunately, the transvaginal meshes were not appropriately tested for long-term outcomes but that did not stop the pharmaceutical companies to market the products under taglines as incredibly durable, faster recoveries and higher success rates. Since then, women who underwent the mesh surgeries faced pain, bleeding, and erosion. It took FDA eight years to finally come up with a warning about the transvaginal mesh complications. In 2014, the authority released a notice reclassifying the surgical mesh for transvaginal pelvic organ prolapse as high-risk devices from the moderate-risk category.
Things to remember
Weigh the risks and benefits before you opt for the medical procedure. Ask your specialist whether there are other treatment options for POP or SUI. Know about the benefits of the mesh surgery and do not just give in to the commercials. Make sure you have a detailed discussion with your physician about the risks associated with a mesh implant. As per the latest vaginal mesh lawsuit & update, you can claim for financial compensation if you feel your trust was misused. Misrepresentation of the devices as safe and best alternatives over traditional practices can also be plied under financial compensations.
How do you know the mesh is a failure?
Of the many drawbacks, mesh erosion is one of the most crucial ones which can cause severe health complications. Look out for the following symptoms to understand whether there is any mesh erosion:
- Painful voiding
- unusual urinary frequency
- recurrent urinary tract infection
- urinary fistula
There is no other option but to trust the manufacturers when they represent to the public that the meshes are the best quality. There is a lack of adequate testing and quality control in mesh testing which has caused harmful side effects in women. You can file mesh lawsuit if you experienced any allergic reaction, chronic pain or inflammation post the implant surgery.
