What is Transvaginal Mesh used to treat?
Tranvaginal mesh is used to strengthen the vaginal wall, which can be weakened or damaged by significant stretching, like that associated with childbirth. The vaginal wall physically supports nearby organs of the lower abdominal region, and a prolapse can occur without that support along with stress urinary incontinence (SUI), which is characterized by the inability to control urination when increasing pressure within the abdominal region. This is known as pelvic organ prolapse (POP)
Females who have had a vaginal mesh patch device implanted could be at risk for a number of internal injuries including infection, urinary problems, and other complications resulting in severe pain and discomfort. Such conditions can be grounds for mesh patch lawsuits.Transvaginal mesh products are surgically implanted devices used to support weak or damaged vaginal walls. The conditions they are normally designed to correct include pelvic organ prolapse (POP) – a condition in which organs of the lower abdominal region slip out of place.
