Transvaginal meshes are implantable devices, made by several manufacturers, for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and incontinence. The meshes are plastic devices, some of which were designed not for pelvic organ prolapse but hernia repair. Used with stitches to support organs in the pelvic region of women, they have been found to cause painful and dangerous side effects.
In severe cases, the mesh must be surgically removed. In rare cases, due to the development of scar tissue, the removal of the mesh is not possible – potentially prolonging the suffering of these women.
