A closer look at the transvaginal mesh
Women who are diagnosed with a condition known as pelvic organ prolapse typically are prescribed the transvaginal mesh. The device is inserted to strengthen the woman’s weakened vaginal tissue. Pregnancy is among the causes of the condition.
The FDA is investigating reports of injury. The agency also says little evidence exists showing that the implants improve pelvic organ prolapsed.
Manufacturers estimate that about 100,000 patients were treated for pelvic organ prolapsed with the surgical mesh in 2010, and about 75,000 women had the devices implanted vaginally. Common transvaginal mesh side effects include:
- Erosion of the vaginal tissue
- Perforation of the bowel, bladder or blood vessels
- Recurrence of pelvic organ prolapse
Manufacturers of the transvaginal mesh include:
- American Medical Systems
- Boston Scientific
- Johnson & Johnson
