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 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
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
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved these implants 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 base their requests for 510(k) approval for human use, is no longer on the market as of 1999 amid concerns very similar to the injuries many are now suffering.
