Vaginal Mesh Erosion & Complications
Vaginal mesh erosion is a serious complication that can result after surgical treatment with transvaginal mesh bladder sling devices. Mesh erosion occurs in some patients who have undergone a vaginal mesh implantation. Mesh erosion is when part of the vaginal mesh implant erodes through the wall of the vagina which may cause severe pain or discomfort. Mesh erosion can cause part of the mesh to tear away and puncture the bladder and vaginal walls.
Atlantic City jury awards $11.1 million verdict in transvaginal mesh case.The jury in the first transvaginal mesh case to go to trial has awarded $7.76 million in punitive damages against Johnson & Johnson, in addition to an earlier award of $3.35 million in compensatory damages. Plaintiff Linda G underwent 18 operations after Johnson & Johnson's Gynecare Prolift mesh was implanted to reinforce weakened pelvic muscles. On Feb. 25, the Atlantic City jury found that Johnson & Johnson had failed to warn Gross' surgeon of the risks of the device and misled her about the risks.

Vaginal mesh is typically used to treat stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse (POP) of women. Both of these medical issues can usually be treated without vaginal mesh, which means that there would be no chance of vaginal mesh erosion.
It makes sense to first discuss what steps a person would likely take to be dealing with mesh erosion. Stress urinary incontinence is a disorder involving the bladder. A person's ability to maintain urine and manage urination depends on the function of the lower urinary tract, kidneys, and the nervous system. A normal bladder gives you the ability to realize and respond to the need to urinate. Both the sphincter and the detrusor are the two muscles involved in the control of urination.

In patients suffering from stress urinary incontinence, the sphincter and pelvic muscles that support the bladder and urethra are weakened. The sphincter is unable to halt urine flow when there is higher pressure from the bladder. Stress urinary incontinence occurs when those muscles controlling urination are weakened. Stress urinary incontinence may be caused by an injury to the urethral area, certain medications, surgery of the prostrate or pelvic area, or other causes.
Transvaginal Mesh Implantation
In many cases for women suffering from stress urinary incontinence, doctors may recommend the implantation of a vaginal mesh product. The product is designed to support the vagina and correct stress urinary incontinence. If functioning correctly, the vaginal mesh implant will help control urination. However, recently there have been an increasing number of patients suffering various complications associated with the vaginal mesh implantation. The problem is that in many cases, these mesh implants react adversely with the vaginal tissue causing complications such as mesh erosion.
Mesh Erosion Complications
Mesh erosion occurs in some patients who have undergone a vaginal mesh implantation. Mesh erosion also called mesh exposure or mesh extrusion is when part of the vaginal mesh implant erodes through the wall of the vagina which may cause severe pain or discomfort. Mesh erosion can also result in the excretion of blood and urine. Initially mesh erosion is typically treated with a cream prescribed by a doctor, but in many cases the cream will not fix the mesh complication. In many mesh erosion instances further surgery may be required to remove the mesh implant. Removal of the mesh implant may be successful in treating mesh erosion, but in some situation, even after multiple surgeries there may be persisting complications due to mesh erosion.
