Common Transvaginal Mesh Injuries
Transvaginal mesh (TVM) is often surgically implanted in female patients suffering from stress urinary incontinence (SUI) or pelvic organ prolapse (POP)—a condition where one or more organs in the pelvic region drops and presses against a woman’s vaginal walls. TVM is used to add support within the pelvic region to help hold the organs in place. But the device has been linked to serious injuries that can require multiple corrective surgeries.
If you or someone you love has TVM for SUI or POP and experienced life-altering complications, contact Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough today.

Serious TVM Injuries
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the most common reported injury is TVM erosion, where the mesh protrudes through a patient’s vaginal walls causing severe pain. TVM has also been linked to other severe injuries, including:
- emotional problems,
- neuro-muscular problems,
- recurrence of POP,
- and vaginal scarring or shrinkage.
Patients and physicians have also been warned about the risk of mesh contraction or shrinkage, which can lead to severe pelvic pain and an inability to engage in sexual intercourse. These injuries can have wide-ranging emotional and physical effects on women’s lives, and they often require more surgery and further medical treatment to correct.
