Understanding Revision Surgeries
Transvaginal mesh is associated with a host of medical complications. Because of this, doctors began performing corrective surgical procedures or "revision surgeries." Revision surgeries can be used to fix the mesh implant in one of two ways: by repositioning it or removing it completely. Unfortunately, the mesh can't always be removed through a revision surgery. Even if the mesh can be taken out, it can take multiple surgeries to fully eliminate. Surgical mesh is supposed to be a permanent solution to pelvic organ prolapse and incontinence in women. Because of this, removing the mesh is usually difficult and painful – especially if the mesh has fused with the surrounding tissue.
When is surgery necessary?
Revision surgery can be used to correct a number of pelvic mesh side effects. Some of the most commons side effects associated with transvaginal mesh include erosion, extrusion, fistula, obstruction of the urethra, bowel perforation, bladder perforation, blood vessel damage, massive hemorrhage, and nerve injuries. Any of these side effects can be severe enough to necessitate a reconstructive surgery. However, corrective surgery does not guarantee whether or not the problem will actually be correct.
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), many women undergo more than three surgeries before the mesh is completely removed or readjusted. Some women need as many as seven surgeries to completely remove the faulty mesh.
