Conditions that needs transvaginal mesh patch implant

While we go ahead to let you know about the present conditions that the use of the transvaginal mesh patch implant has triggered in many centers in the world, it is also very good to let you in on the facts surrounding the procedure. Now, there is a saying that “abuse does not destroy use,” and this is one of the adages I love so much. This is because of the fact that we have had to throw away a lot of very great products and procedures, just because they encountered one small problem along the line. Of course, we know that almost all good discoveries have passed through some downturns before they got to the level they are being enjoyed presently. We have an adage in Africa that “you do not throw away the dirty bathing water with the baby,” no, you preserve your baby and through away the bad and dirty water. There is nothing wrong with transvaginal mesh patch implant as a procedure. The problem only lies in the implants that are not properly produced or implants done with bad or substandard materials. So, if there is a call back to the labs and meshes that satisfy all the necessary health and safety conditions are manufactured, this remains the best method that can be used to treat the heath conditions mentioned below.

Having said this, we then move into the major problems that the transvaginal mesh implant is used to treat.

The number one problem that this was developed for is to repair the prolapse that is witnessed by the pelvic organs, and to reinforce vaginal walls that have been weakened by some stress. Sometimes, the bladder or other pelvic organs might become weakened, to the extent that they drop down from their supposed position. When this happens, the result is that they will prolapse and eventually fall into the vagina. This surgery is used to hold these organs into place, to prevent pelvic discomfort, urinary and sexual defects caused by the relapse.

Another condition that transvaginal mesh patch implant is used to treat are cases of stress urinary incontinence, and this is a condition where the urinary muscles are completely weakened, and this brings about uncontrolled urination. Here, the surgery is used to support the urethra and put it back in place. Though this is common with aged women, it can also affect the young. The aforementioned two, are not life threatening, but causes great discomfort and reduction in the quality of life of the victims.

The third and final is the treatment of hernia. Here, it is used to repair the hernia that might have been damaged through stress, surgery or other factors.

However, the recall that is going on or ban on the use of the transvaginal mesh in the market of today is in no means a ban on the use of this as a surgery. The only thing that happens is that the manufacturers now have a lot of work to do. They have to go back into the lab and make sure they come out with meshes that are not with any blemish, and the surgeons have to make sure they equip themselves with the necessary information on the best practices for the implant. Another thing is that both the surgeons and the manufacturers must make sure they educate all the users on the risks involved, before the surgery is carried on.
