More fantastic reporting from NBC Bay Area’s senior investigative reporter (and mom) Vicky Nguyen.
She reports on transvaginal mesh risks. They are a common solution for women, especially after multiple births. Doctors use mesh to repair prolapse or incontinence. But Nguyen reports the device has serious risks that women should know about.
Transvaginal mesh, also known as TVM, pelvic mesh, or a bladder sling, is a medical device that’s been sold to millions of women for years, and resulted in thousands of complaints about severe health problems.
