During abdominal or pelvic surgery, surgeons sometimes choose to introduce a mesh into the body to assist with holding organs in place. Ideally these medical devices stay in the correct place and function just as intended. Sometimes, however, the mesh causes medical problems because it fails upon introduction to the body. In dramatically severe circumstances the mesh essential acts like a cheese grater and organs twist and grind against the mesh. In other adverse reactions the mesh has been rejected by the body or the mesh begins to deteriorate inside the body. When these serious medical conditions arise, additional surgery becomes required to remove the transvaginal or pelvic mesh.
