Transvaginal mesh or vaginal sling is a medical device that is surgically inserted to help restore a normal vaginal structure needed to support a woman's pelvic organs. Many patients that have undergone this surgery have experienced many complications related to the procedure. These serious complications include pelvic hemorrhage, urinary problems, perforation of the blood vessels, infection, and the mesh eroding inside the body.
According to the US Food and Drug Administration, in 2008 over 1,000 reports of complications were linked to the mesh medical device. Many patients that have undergone this surgery required the mesh be removed due complications.
