Uses of a Transvaginal Mesh Implant
Transvaginal mesh implants are surgically implanted mesh used to prevent and/or treat pelvic organ prolapse. This medical condition sometimes occurs after a woman has given birth to a child or has had various types of vaginal surgery. Pelvic organ prolapse can cause a woman’s womb to descend into the vaginal area. This can lead to other organs, such as the woman’s bowels or bladder to move from their original positions and put pressure on the vagina. This can be very painful and can also cause problems with the woman’s urinary flow making it important that a Charleston vaginal mesh attorney is consulted as soon as possible.
Complications from the transvaginal mesh implants include “erosion” which in layman’s terms means that the patient’s skin splits from the mesh and the mesh protrudes into the flesh and other areas of the patient’s body. This can lead to chronic pain, infections, and painful intercourse just to name a few.
