Vaginal mesh & TVT claims

Vaginal mesh or TVT (transvaginal tape) is used to treat urinary stress incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse in women after childbirth.

Mesh implants have been widely used in surgery across the UK as it was seen as a less invasive procedure with a shorter recovery time.

Vaginal mesh surgery symptoms and complications

An increasing number of women have reported complications following vaginal mesh or TVT surgery, including:

  • Pain in the pelvic area
  • Incontinence
  • Mesh erosion/protrusion
  • Perforation
  • Irregular vaginal bleeding
  • Infection
  • Bladder/bowel problems or changes
  • Sexual issues including pain
  • Pain in the buttocks or legs

If the bladder, bowels or urethra were damaged in the original repair surgery, these are likely to be linked to problems with the mesh. Removing mesh and tape can be a complex procedure but may be needed.
