What is a vaginal mesh? When is it used?

The Vaginal Mesh,Surgical Mesh Trans vaginal mesh.prolapse mesh and vaginal sling are medical devices designed to strengthen vaginal wall. The device is usually implanted after a woman experiences a pelvic organ prolapse or a POP,after child birth,hysterectomy or SUI urinary incontinence. A Pelvic Organ Prolapse occurs typically due to pregnancy,age,hysterectomy,injury or other medical condition causing the vaginal  wall to weaken. The pelvic organ prolapse occurs when an organ drops and pushes against the wall of the vagina. The organs that can drop are the bladder, urethra, uterus, small bowel. Mild POP can be treated with special excerises. More severe POP cases are treated with Transvaginal mesh devices.

There are four types of  Transvaginal mesh implant products. There is *a non-absorbable polyester or polypropylene,* absorbable synthetics transbvaginal mesh product,* animal tissues mesh product, and *combinations of the above.  The Vast majority of surgons use the polyester or polypropylene Transvaginal mesh. Manufacturers are required to report any adverse complications   from  their products. The Transvaginal mesh products used for prolapse repair, or for urinary stress incontinence surgery.have shown to cause severe complications.

The materials used in transvaginal mesh products:

  •     non-absorbable synthetic (e.g., polypropylene or polyester);
  •     absorbable synthetic (e.g., poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) or poly(caprolactone));

300.000 women have been treated for organ prolapse. More than 75,000 women received vaginally implanted Transvaginal mesh implants last year to reinforce weak pelvic muscles that have failed to support internal organs. “We listen to stories of these complications on a daily basis ” “The 510(k) process which approves or disapproves medical devices has completely failed to protect these thousands of women who were advised these implanted vaginal mesh devices would improve their quality of life” “A panel met just recently to review the safety of these devices. The FDA must move forward to  protect women.”says L.Spitzer MSW who oversees the Vaginal Mesh Helpline.
