A new study finds that about 1 in 30 women who opt for vaginal mesh implants need to remove or replace the devices within 10 years.
Patients fared best when sling operations were done by surgeons who performed the greatest volumes of surgeries.
The Journal of American Medical Association notes that in the United States, an estimated one in 7 adult females will have operations for urinary stress incontinence during their lifetime.
Research has linked the slings to mesh erosions, fistulas and chronic pain in the pelvic area and legs. Repairing the damage caused by vaginal slings, involves repeat surgeries to remove or replace the implants.
More than 50,000 women in the US have entered into class action lawsuits to recoup compensation for injuries caused by the mesh.
