Transvaginal Mesh implants are also commonly referred to as a pelvic mesh, surgical mesh, or bladder sling. These medical devices are implanted in women after undergoing treatment for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or stress urinary
incontinence (SUI).

When transvaginal mesh was introduced to the market in the late 1990s, it was presented as an easier fix for prolapse and incontinence compared with traditional surgery. In the procedure, doctors surgically implant a piece of synthetic mesh through the vagina to support organs that have prolapsed, or fallen out of place. To treat incontinence, doctors use a smaller piece of mesh known as a bladder sling.
