Why Was The Implant Used At All?
The transvaginal mesh procedure has been used to repair pelvic organ prolapse, which happens when the pelvic organs become dislodged from their proper location. The connective vaginal tissue is stiched back into place, repairing the dislodgement between the vaginal wall and muscle. Common procedures used include transvaginal mesh slings, and the transvaginal tape system have been found to deteriorate, causing mesh erosion, infections, urinary incontinence and abdominal pain.
Mesh is a permanent synthetic material that has been widely used in surgical procedures most commonly for hernia repair treatments. The mesh is intended to provide a netting of support material to help repair the tissue tearing that occured during the pelvic organ prolapse. The varying degrees of severety of the prolapse dictate how extensive of meshing is needed to repair the damaged tissues. Prior to the FDA warning vaginal mesh prolapse surgery was considered relatively safe with few risks.
An alternative to the transvaginal mesh surgery is the vaginal pessary for prolapse procedure which involves the installation of a pessary device which supports the vagina. As an alternative to vaginal prolapse surgery the pessaries have proven successful, though the pessaries require replacing every 3 to 6 months.
A vaginal prolapse is a condition most commonly diagnosed through the symptoms of constipation, bowel emptying problems, bladder problems, sexual intercourse problems or by the discovery of a vaginal lump. The symptoms are caused by the pelvic organs, namely the bladder, uterus and or bowel protrudes into the vagina.
