Trans vaginal mesh is a medical device that is implanted into a woman’s vagina.
More than 75,000 women received trans vaginal mesh implants last year to strengthen weak pelvic muscles that fail to support internal organs. Patients claimed the trans vaginal mesh surgeries led to internal injuries. Hundreds of lawsuits have been filed against the trans vaginal mesh makers.
Is trans vaginal mesh safe?
Some doctors would like to see a registry to follow patients who already have implants. Also more clinical trials are needed to establish whether the benefits of trans vaginal mesh outweigh the risks.
While the mesh makers say their medical devices are safe, various surgeons have spoken out that trans vaginal mesh should be used in limited numbers and only by well-trained physicians on a limited number of specifically chosen patients who have a propensity for successful surgery.
