Transvaginal Mesh Surgery, Complications & Injuries
Transvaginal mesh surgery is the surgical insertion (via the vagina) of a mesh “sling”, a net-like implant that serves to support the pelvic organs. The purpose of a transvaginal mesh surgery is to treat two medical conditions:
- Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) – The lowering or “dropping” of a pelvic organ such as the bladder so that it presses against or slips down through the vagina.
- Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) – The loss of bladder control when a person coughs, sneezes, laughs, exercises, or performs any form of strenuous activity that places pressure on the pelvic organs.
POP and SUI result from the weakening or stretching of the muscles that support the pelvic organs, usually due to childbirth or certain surgeries. Transvaginal mesh surgery has helped countless women return to living normal lives, but the number of cases resulting in serious or life-threatening complications continues to rise.

- Severe vaginal, groin, or abdominal pain
