Transvaginal Mesh Implant Complications
Vaginal mesh implants (also called transvaginal mesh implants) were developed to treat pelvic organ prolapse in women. Reports of problems with these implants have raised concerns about the implants’ suitability for the purpose, and consequently numerous lawsuits have been filed for women who have suffered infections, pain and urinary problems associated with the implants.

Injuries Caused by Vaginal Mesh Products
In July 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advised that pelvic organ prolapse can be successfully treated by means other than vaginal mesh implants. Despite this, thousands of implant procedures continue to be performed every year.
Women who have had vaginal mesh implants have reported a number of serious medical problems, including:
- Vaginal pain
- Pelvic pain
- Urinary problems
- Injury to other organs
- Difficulty during sex
- Vaginal bleeding
The chief source of the problems appears to be erosion or contraction of the mesh.
