As a Dallas, Texas Trans Vaginal Mesh attorney, I am highlighting this latest research that is putting another nail in the Mesh coffin. According to new published research, transvaginal mesh placement provides no benefits when used for pelvic organ prolapse repair. In a study published in the Obstetrics and Gynecology journal, researchers found that the use of vaginal mesh does not increase good outcome for surgical prolapse repair when compared to more traditional treatments.
Georgetown University researchers halted the study due to the high rate of serious injuries associated with use of vaginal mesh. The study involved 65 women, 33 of whom received vaginal mesh to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and 32 who underwent traditional vaginal prolapse surgery.
The women were followed for three years and the program stopped early because of a 15.6% mesh exposure rate, where the mesh eroded into the vagina.
