What does pelvic mesh do and why are women suing over it?7/1/2021
Urogynaecological meshes (sometimes known as transvaginal meshes) are used to treat stress incontinence, a condition that can lead to women leaking from their bladder when doing impact activities such as running and jumping, or when sneezing or coughing. The condition is very common in women after childbirth and at the menopause – around 20% of women are affected sufficiently for it to be a problem in their daily lives. Mesh surgery has a low complication rate for incontinence.To get more news about hard mesh, you can visit official website.

The meshes are also sometimes offered as a treatment for women suffering from pelvic organ prolapse. Pelvic organ prolapse affects up to half of women who have had children, and occurs when a pelvic organ – such as the bladder, rectum or uterus – “sags” and moves out of place. This can happen when the pelvic floor muscles, ligaments and tissue that hold the organs in place are weak or damaged.

Childbirth is a main source of trauma to the muscles and ligaments, and hormonal changes during the menopause also lead to muscles weakening and becoming less elastic. Heavy lifting can also cause damage to the pelvic organs and lead to prolapse. The condition also tends to run in families and is more common in women who are overweight.

While some women have no symptoms, pelvic organ prolapse can be debilitating and make it hard to go to the toilet, can cause painful or heavy sensations in the vagina, and can make sex difficult, all of which require treatment. It can also cause a loss of sensation and make it harder to “push”, for example when urinating. For women with these symptoms reconstructive surgery using vaginal mesh is sometimes recommended.

How does it work?
The mesh is a net-like implant. It comes in a number of forms including a “sling”, “tape”, “ribbon”, “mesh” and “hammock”. There are different brands and manufacturers.

The aim of the mesh is to give permanent support to the weakened organs and to repair damaged tissue.

Surgery can be done through the abdomen (transabdominal) or through the vagina (transvaginal). A small incision is made in the vaginal or abdominal wall, and the surgical mesh is implanted and held in place by sutures or tissue fixation devices. The idea is that tissue will grow into the pores of the mesh to create a wall of support.
