The FDA has released information concerning health risks associated with the transvaginal mesh, prompting many women who have had the medical device implanted to question whether they have been placed at risk. Knowing the warning signs that one’s transvaginal mesh or sling has failed is an important first step for ensuring the best outcome possible when getting medical or legal help for one’s injury.
Hundreds of thousands of women have reportedly been implanted with a transvaginal mesh or sling for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Since the introduction of the device into the market in the 1990s, many have reported experiencing related complications such as:
• Mesh erosion
• Pain during sexual intercourse
• And other serious health complications
Prior to the information being released by the FDA in 2008 and again in 2011, many women associated their pain and other symptoms of mesh failure with an underlying health condition due to the widespread lack of recognition that problems persisted with use of the device. However the signs of injury are now more easily recognizable and women who suspect mesh failure can obtain a health evaluation to know for sure whether they have been injured by the device.
