Obviously, women are the end result for transvaginal mesh.
According to their doctors, women need transvaginal mesh to be permanently implanted to reinforce their weakened vaginal wall to repair pelvic organ prolapse also known as POP or to support the urethra to treat urinary incontinence.
Pelvic organ prolapse happens when the pelvic organs such as the bladder, uterus and bowel, become so weak that the organs drop from their normal position and bulge or prolapse into the vagina.
Pelvic organ prolapse is not life-threatening. However, women with POP have pelvic discomfort, disruption of their sexual, urinary, and defecating functions, and an overall decline in their quality of life.
On the other hand, Stress Urinary Incontinence or SUI also deals with incontinence or bladder leakage, is caused by insufficient strength of the pelvic floor muscles. While very common, SUI is written off as a natural part of aging. Women of all ages are affected.
If left untreated or dismissed as a “just live with it” condition, SUI will put severe restrictions on a woman’s lifestyle.
Hundreds of women have filed lawsuits for pain and suffering, medical expenses, and loss of quality of life due to transvaginal mesh patch surgery.
