    What Is Vaginal Mesh?


    share


    Vaginal mesh refers to a semi-permeable barrier implanted by a physician into a woman as a reinforcement structure to keep her internal organs in place. The device is known as vaginal mesh because it is now typically inserted (or “placed”) through the vagina, whereas these meshes used to be surgically placed via an incision in the patient’s abdomen.


    History of Vaginal Mesh


    Physicians first started using what is now referred to as vaginal mesh in the 1950s to treat abdominal hernias. In the 1970s, by cutting that same type of mesh into a different shape, doctors began using it to treat female Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) and Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP). As the use of mesh in SUI and POP surgeries increased in popularity in the late 1990s, medical device companies began to develop and market mesh products in configurations designed specifically to treat those two conditions.
