Women who are suffering from pelvic organ prolapse (POP) may opt for surgery to treat serious symptoms that do not improve with lifestyle changes or other devices to help support the prolapsed organs. Several surgical methods of repairing pelvic floor disorders exist, including a method known as transvaginal mesh implantation. Frequently reported complications from transvaginal mesh include chronic pain, infection, bleeding, pain during intercourse, urinary problems, and exposure of the mesh through the vagina. Transvaginal mesh removal is a technically complex surgical procedure in which surgeons attempt to remove as much of the mesh as possible. Complete transvaginal mesh removal is possible for some women, while only part of the mesh can be removed in other women due to complicated issues from the type of mesh that was originally used.
