During the annual American Urological Association meeting, urology researchers presented data from two recently completed studies on the surgical removal of transvaginal mesh. The studies produced varied results.
One study involving 123 transvaginal mesh patients gathered more positive results, as the majority of the patients no longer experienced pain from a defective transvaginal mesh device.
The other study, involving 214 patients, collected different results. Rather than alleviating pain, many of the patients continued to experience pain, in addition to urinary issues and painful intercourse.
These contrasting findings may make it challenging for patients to decide if surgery is the right choice for dealing with mesh erosion, a common sign of defective transvaginal mesh. However, because these studies are as of yet unpublished, it is recommended to carefully consider the information that they present. Furthermore, it is best to consult with a physician or surgeon before making any major health decisions.
