TVM Related Injuries

Approximately 10% of women who receive transvaginal mesh implants experience mesh erosion within 12 months of surgery. More than half of reported complications require further surgery to remove the TVM implant. Transvaginal Mesh Side Effects Include:

  • Mesh Erosion (mesh protruding through skin)
  • Pain during intercourse or urination
  • Chronic pain
  • Infection
  • Urinary problems
  • Mesh shrinkage causing vaginal shortening, tightening and pain
  • Bleeding
  • Unusual vaginal discharge
  • Mesh migration
  • Vaginal tightening
  • Bladder, blood vessel, or bowel perforation
  • Dyspareunia (pain during intercourse) caused by vaginal mesh erosion and vaginal scarring
  • Additional corrective surgeries for repair or removal
  • Recurrence of Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) or Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI)

The most common complication related to transvaginal mesh products is protrusion of the surgical mesh through the wall of the vagina, a complication that doctors call mesh erosion. The use of vaginal mesh adds risks and complications in pelvic organ prolapse repair that are not present in traditional surgery.
