What is Transvaginal Mesh (TVM)?
Vaginal mesh is a surgical mesh used to treat problems in women such as pelvic prolapse. Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is a type of hernia that sometimes occurs in women after childbirth.
The weakening of pelvic muscles and tissues surrounding organs such as the bladder, uterus, and rectum can be caused by the stress of childbirth.
In 2002, the FDA approved a medical device called Transvaginal mesh to help reinforce or to better secure the organs. POP occurs in approximately 30% to 50% of women after childbirth.
