Thousands of women, who have had vaginal mesh implanted in them during surgery, are at an increased risk of suffering significant health problems from recalled vaginal mesh. These health problems can be caused by mesh erosion, mesh deterioration, and mesh contraction and can include recurrence of prolapse and/or incontinence; bowel perforation; bladder perforation; blood vessel perforation; neurological problems; erosion of the mesh through vagina infection; urinary problems; and vaginal epithelium. These health issues can often require multiple surgeries to repair or cause permanent health problems.
