The Unintended Consequences of a Transvaginal Mesh Procedure

March 6, 2013

Every year, thousands of transvaginal mesh (TVM) patients intend one consequences – namely, resolved pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or stress urinary incontinence (SUI) – but experience a notably different, unintended outcome. These unintended consequences include painful, embarrassing, and frustrating side effects that include pain, infection, bladder perforation, and, ironically, a return of SUI or POP.

 

What’s the probability of experiencing a pain side effect? Although these measures are difficult to quantify, it is worth noting that a European study determined that women who underwent a transvaginal mesh surgery for their POP were seven times more likely to experience a bladder perforation as compared to a patient undergoing a traditional procedure, such as colporraphy.
