TVT Sling Complications: Vaginal Mesh extrusion / visible mesh

Typically rate  of <1% and not considered a major complication. Typically needs a minor  vaginal repair of the exposure and/or trimming of the exposed mesh. Usually the  whole sling does not need to be removed as it is a localized healing defect  that the mesh worked its way through the vaginal skin and is exposed. The mesh  is usually not infected or being rejected and therefore only the exposed  portion needs treated. Many women don’t know they have an exposure until their  partner may complain of getting cuts or abrasion during intercourse.  It can also cause vaginal spotting or discharge.
