Bladder mesh strip
We reviewed the incidence, predisposing factors, presentation and management of complications related to the use of synthetic mesh in the management of stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse repair. Immediate complications, such as bleeding, hematoma, injury to adjacent organs during placement of mesh and complication of voiding dysfunction are not discussed in this review, since they are primarily related to technique. Key words used were urinary incontinence, mesh, complications, midurethral sling, anterior prolapse, anterior vaginal repair, pelvic organ prolapse, transvaginal mesh, vault prolapse, midurethral slings, female stress urinary incontinence, mesh erosion, vaginal mesh complications, and posterior vaginal wall prolapse. Since there were very few articles dealing with the management of mesh-related complications in the period covered in the search we extended the search from January onwards.

Urogynaecological meshes sometimes known as transvaginal meshes are used to treat stress incontinence, a condition that can lead to women leaking from their bladder when doing impact activities such as running and jumping, or when sneezing or coughing. Mesh surgery has a low complication rate for incontinence. The meshes are also sometimes offered as a treatment for women suffering from pelvic organ prolapse. This can happen when the pelvic floor muscles, ligaments and tissue that hold the organs in place are weak or damaged. Childbirth is a main source of trauma to the muscles and ligaments, and hormonal changes during the menopause also lead to muscles weakening and becoming less elastic.

Stress urinary incontinence SUI is a leakage of urine during moments of physical activity that increases abdominal pressure, such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercise. SUI is the most common type of urinary incontinence in women. SUI can happen when pelvic tissues and muscles, which support the bladder and urethra, become weak and allow the bladder "neck" where the bladder and urethra intersect to descend during bursts of physical activity. This descent can prevent the urethra from working properly to control the flow of urine.
If you have severe symptoms of stress urinary incontinence or overactive bladder, surgery may provide a permanent solution to your problems. But surgery isn't for everyone. Find out what procedures may help in treating urinary incontinence.
