Vaginal Mesh Side Effects:
Transvaginal Mesh linked to serious injuries
Victims of defective Transvaginal mesh and pelvic/bladder support products are filing suit against the manufacturers nationwide following the shocking results of a clinical study. The study was stopped before completion because the problems they were seeing in patients were too severe to continue the research. More than 15 percent of women in the study experience the dangerous and painful condition known as “erosion,” in which the skin splits and the mesh protrudes.
On July 13, 2011, The FDA issued a Public Health Notification discussing Serious Complications Associated with Transvaginal Placement of Surgical Mesh in Repair of Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Stress Urinary Incontinence.
Vaginal Mesh is mainly used for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. Complications have arisen due to the use of Vaginal Meshes, such as painful intercourse, mesh erosion, infections, chronic pain, and additional required surgeries.

The Transvaginal products (mesh, tape and sling devices) are manufactured by several companies including Johnson & Johnson, C.R. Bard, Boston Scientific, American Medical Systems and others, and are marketed as solutions for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and pelvic organ prolapse (POP). Many patients have reported experiencing serious problems including: pain (during urination/intercourse and/or localized); infection; migration; erosion and corrective surgeries. According to a recent article in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, patients would have been better off with traditional treatment.
