What is mesh removal?

Many women face the issue of pelvic organ prolapse, making it a common reason for surgery. Additionally, over time, the pelvic floor muscles weaken, leading to the occurrence of pelvic organ prolapse, also known as POP. Consequently, this weakening causes the organs to prolapse, resulting in discomfort and functional issues. To address this, medical professionals have widely employed the surgical method of implanting vaginal mesh to restore the necessary support. This technique offers a more sustainable and effective solution for patients experiencing pelvic organ prolapse.

Furthermore, the use of vaginal mesh, a net-like device utilized to support and repair weakened tissue, has observed a considerable increase over the past several years. This device, commonly referred to as “transvaginal mesh,” is surgically implanted through the vagina. Furthermore, as the years progress, more and more women are encountering serious side effects and complications as a result of the transvaginal mesh used for prolapse or incontinence.

Mesh removal surgery consists of removing the mesh and any surrounding tissue that may be damaged. If your quality of life is suffering due to complications from your transvaginal mesh, help is available to you at IBI Healthcare Institute.

What are some of themain problems caused by vaginal mesh?

Although you may have been told that transvaginal mesh implantation was a low-risk procedure and you may now be dealing with the reality of discovering this was untrue. Some of the major complications of transvaginal mesh include:

  • Vaginal bleeding;
  • Pelvic pain which makes it hard to move;
  • Abdominal pressure;
  • Perforation of organs, bowels and blood vessels;
  • Incontinence;
  • Vaginal scarring;
  • Vaginal infections and discharge;
  • Exposure of mesh through vaginal tissue.

Am I a good candidate for mesh removal?

If you are currently in moderate to severe pain due to your vaginal mesh, you may be a good candidate for mesh removal surgery. It is important to know that although most women can remove all the mesh during one surgery, some women will not be able to remove the entire portion of mesh. This can occur when the tissue has grown into the device.

A board-certified surgeon from IBI Healthcare Institute will thoroughly evaluate your medical history and address any questions you may have about the procedure in a private consultation. Because mesh removal is a unique and sometimes complex process, your surgeon will ensure that you understand every aspect of the procedure and recovery before moving forward.
