Vaginal Mesh and Bladder Sling Complications
The most frequent complications from these transvaginal mesh products include mesh erosion into the vagina, bladder, intestines and uterus, mesh shrinkage or contraction, mesh migration, mesh exposure, scar tissue formation, granuloma formation, infections, pelvic pain, urinary incontinence and development of urinary retention, dysuria (painful urination), dyspareunia (painful sexual relations), neuropathic pain, fistulas and recurrence of prolapsed organs. These complications have significantly decreased the quality of life many patients once enjoyed.
The failure of the Gynecare Prolift, Bard Avaulta, Boston Scientific Pinnacle and Uphold, and AMS Apogee, Perigee, and Elevate, and other bladder sling and pelvic mesh products, can also lead to the need for multiple operations to try to remove the mesh and to repair extensive damage caused by the mesh. In many cases the mesh cannot be completely removed, permanently compromising a woman’s health.
