Vaginal mesh Implant Errors
Australian Doctors Admit Errors in Implanting Vaginal Mesh Devices
September 19, 2017
Jenny King, the director of the Urogynaecological Society of Australasia, stated recently that many surgeons have been incautious in their decisions to implant vaginal mesh devices in their patients, remarking that the controversial devices had been implanted too often and with too little regard for their potential health consequences.
King said that many surgeons believed vaginal mesh devices – also known as pelvic mesh devices and/or transvaginal mesh devices (TVMs) – were “magic.” King argued that doctors should be – and should have been – more careful in the use of TVMs, especially in young and healthy women.
Still, King said, the devices should not be banned outright, as they can often be a successful treatment for stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse, two common post-childbirth complications.
Around the world, pelvic mesh devices have been linked to severe pain, infection, and sexual dysfunction. The makers of vaginal mesh devices have been taken to court in numerous countries, and are being investigated in others. Trials have taken place and are ongoing in the US, and formal medical/legal inquiries are underway in several nations of the United Kingdom and Australia.
Johnson & Johnson, one of the largest manufacturers of pelvic mesh devices, recently pulled two of its TVM devices from the Australian market, but insisted that that action had to do not with safety concerns but with diminished profit margins.
The inquiry by the Australian Department of Health is currently underway.
