The term “transvaginal” refers to the type of surgical technique used to implant the mesh – through the vagina.
This type of surgical mesh was created to permanently fix pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI) – conditions that typically plague women after a hysterectomy, menopause or childbirth. Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when a woman’s pelvic muscles weaken and the pelvic organs — including the bladder, rectum and uterus — drop into the vagina.
Doctors can surgically place the mesh transvaginally or abdominally, but inserting the mesh through the vagina is quicker, easier and less invasive.
While these products were created to help women suffering from SUI and POP, not all of them are safe and reliable. The design and manufacturer-recommended implantation technique of some of these transvaginal mesh products contributed to serious complications
