Health Risks Due to the Avaulta Mesh
Sadly, the transvaginal mesh has been linked to a high number of side effects and serious health risks. The FDA issued warnings to consumers about the immense risk from using transvaginal meshes such as Bard’s Avaulta. Transvaginal meshes are porous, and with extended use, can embed, irritate, and puncture organs or the vaginal walls
Some of the complications and health risks of using the mesh include:
- Chronic pain
- Organ perforation
- Internal bleeding
- Mesh erosion
- Pain during sexual intercourse
- Shrinkage or scarring of the vaginal walls
For women who have experienced problems from transvaginal mesh, relief may only come in the form of surgery to fully remove the mesh. The tradeoff, however, is that pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence may return, as the mesh was used to treat those ailments. Yet, as the evidence begins growing to show that TV meshes do more harm than good, and can lead to painful, life-threatening, and possibly even permanent damage, it is only right that women understand that there is a way to recover from the financial losses, as well as emotional and physical pain.
