Pessaries and Other Vaginal Mesh Alternatives Discussed by Life Care Solutions Group
Date:12/16/2013

CONCORD, Calif., Dec. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Some statistics suggest that one in two women will experience pelvic organ prolapse during their lifetime. The gynecological condition is one that may have a number of causes including childbirth, obesity, and pelvic organ tumors. Since its introduction into the market in the 1990s, the transvaginal mesh medical device has been widely used for treatment of pelvic organ prolapse, but in recent years it has been the subject of major scrutiny due to numerous complaints about health complications experienced by women who have been implanted with the device.

Since the FDA initially released information about the risks associated with the vaginal mesh in 2008, numerous women have pursued alternative treatments for their pelvic organ prolapse. One alternative, a pessary, is a medical device that is used to provide structural support for the vagina, rectum, bladder, and other pelvic organs that have moved out of place.

Pessaries (mechanical devices) for pelvic organ prolapse in women.
"Pelvic organ prolapse is common, with some degree of prolapse seen in up to 50% of parous women in a clinic setting, although many are asymptomatic. The use of pessaries (a passive mechanical device designed to support the vagina) to treat prolapse is very common, and up to 77% of clinicians use pessaries for the first line management of prolapse."

In addition to the use of a pessary, there are several alternatives to the vaginal mesh for treating pelvic organ prolapse including surgery to correct the condition, medications, Kegel exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor wall, and lifestyle changes.

The Life Care Solutions Group, which is a resource for women seeking information about their medical and legal options in the event that they have had transvaginal mesh surgery and were injured by the device, say assessing TVM alternatives is important for patients suffering with gynecologic conditions like pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence. Due to the serious health complications ascribed to use of the mesh in a majority of cases, the device is rarely viewed as a safe option for women today.

The Truth About Vaginal Mesh
"Every woman who receives a recommendation for vaginal mesh should ask about alternative methods of treatment."

Women who have been injured by a transvaginal mesh implant may have grounds for pursuing legal compensation from manufacturers of the device.
