Brief Information About SUI, POP and Vaginal Mesh Surgery

More often than not, women with pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or stress urinary incontinence (SUI) usually go through a vaginal mesh surgery to alleviate symptoms, observe medical experts. These conditions developed because of weakened vaginal and/or bladder muscles. A number of factors may lead to these conditions such as giving birth, menopause, pregnancy, surgery, illnesses that cause chronic coughing or sneezing, and menstruation among others.

POP and SUI are prompted by coughing, sneezing, exercising, heavy lifting, laughing, or any movement that puts pressure on your abdomen.A number of people do not know much about SUI that 13 million Americans and 3 million people in the United Kingdom are dealing with it, not to mention the 200,000 surgeries completed every year in the US to combat POP.

There are different indications of POP such as lower back pain, pelvic organs adding pressure to the vaginal epithelium, constipation, feeling very full in your lower belly, and painful sex.Meanwhile, for SUI, the main sign of this condition is leakage of urine in an uncontrolled way.

Your surgeon may suggest you to undergo an operation if your condition is already severe. The aim of the operation is to supply something to hold up for the vagina or uterus.This is done through inserting a vaginal mesh device through an incision made in the vaginal wall. A mesh is a synthetic material which has many holes in it to allow the body’s own tissue to grow into the mesh, and as a result it provides a frame of support.

vaginal mesh is believed to be efficient in treating POP or SUI according to medical companies.Although, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) states that there is not enough evidence to support such declarations.In addition, the FDA distributed a Public health Notification (PHN) about the potential complications linked to transvaginal surgical mesh.

According to reports, vaginal mesh devices produced unwanted effects to some patients, for instance, the Avaulta vaginal mesh. Some signs of a failing mesh device are infection, recurrence of incontinence, pain, urinary problem, erosion, and organ damage. If you are affected by this, you may need to go through several surgeries to remove the device, unfortunately, it cannot be completely cleared resulting to long-term injuries.

These all provoked the filing of lawsuits against manufacturers of the vaginal mesh devices, for instance, Avaulta vaginal mesh lawsuit. For all those women affected by this, it is time to make a stand.
