Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Understanding Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Stress Urinary Incontinence or SUI and Pelvic Organ Prolapse or POP are some of the reproductive conditions that women develop as they age.

These two common discomforts have lead to the creation of the Bard Avaulta Mesh; a mesh inserted into the front of the vagina that is designed to help with the discomfort and pain suffered by women with these conditions.

It is also manufactured to help maintain comfort of the reproductive area of the body in times of physical stress and exertion.

Through these results, the Bard Avaulta Mesh has been famously sold to many doctors that deal with the reproductive organ of women.

Although there has been a marked desirable results of the Bard Avaulta Mesh to some women, some experienced a worsening pain and other discomforts such as as Urinary problems and pelvic pain.

This led to many women filing lawsuits to the manufacturers of Bard Avaulta Mesh because there were supposedly side effects that mainly worsened their medical condition.

The Surgery

Urinary Incontinence is one of the most common problems that women are experiencing in their adult age. Some causes of urinary incontinence is the prolapse of their urinary bladder, which means that the bladder descends to the vagina which is also known as cystocele, causing the incontinence.

Cystocele Surgery is the surgical approach to correct the cystocele or pelvic organ prolapse. This procedure is being performed by Obstetric or Gynecologic Surgeons.

Before the surgery, you may need to be admitted in the hospital and will be taught and be informed about the surgical procedure and its underlying complications.

This surgery may require you to be under general anesthesia where you will sleep all throughout the surgical procedure.

You may also be administered regional anesthesia where you will be awake but your pelvic area will be numbed so you won’t feel the pain in the surgical process.

The success rate of the Cystocele Surgery is high but there are some complications such as worsening pelvic pain and infection that has been reported.

The pelvic organs prolapse is a very unpleasant condition and it affects more than 50% of women who already passed a certain age.

Types of POP

There are several types of POP, but the rectocele prolapse is very common. This is the reason why so many women complain about Rectocele Mesh Complications.

These women were suffering from the prolapse of the rectum which caused them a constant pressure, pains and difficulties during the sexual intercourse, so their quality of life was being severely affected.

They received a Rectocele mesh through surgery, a synthetic mesh that should sustain the rectum in its right place by taking the function of the vaginal tissues that loosened.

Unfortunately, in some cases, the mesh was thought to be faulty, so it supposedly had a manufacture defect which caused severe complications.

Women who were unlucky enough to become victims of the faulty meshes now have to undergo medical interventions and treatments in order to solve the complications.
