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.

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.
