A transvaginal mesh patch is a polyester or polypropylene patch that is implanted into the pelvic cavity to help alleviate a wide variety of conditions, including stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and pelvic organ prolapse (POP). The patch is designed to lend support to the vagina and to help hold in place. Unfortunately, many women who have undergone this procedure have experienced painful and uncomfortable complications.
Transvaginal Mesh Injury Attorneys
Transvaginal mesh implants are used to treat a variety of medical conditions in women. Unfortunately, these implants can result in ongoing pain and may require numerous surgeries to help correct the issue. In some cases, the mesh actually cuts into the tissue, while in others it becomes embedded in the tissue, making removal extremely painful and difficult.

Transvaginal Mesh Complications
In recent years, a growing number of women who have turned to transvaginal mesh implants to help rectify stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and pelvic organ prolapse (POP) have experienced a range of physical difficulties including:
- Painful sex
- Erosion of vaginal tissues
In a number of instances, the implant has actually eroded vaginal tissue to the point where the implant protrudes inside of the vagina.
The Fast-Track Approval Process Allowed Companies To Bypass Human Testing
These implants were approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) through the 510(k) process. This process allows new products to claim that they are substantially similar to an already approved device or drug. The FDA does not require human testing for drugs or devices approved via this process.
The FDA has yet to issue a recall for transvaginal mesh implants even though the original product, on which many were able to base their requests for 510(k) approval for human use, was pulled off the market in 1999 amid concerns very similar to the injuries many are now suffering.
