Vaginal Sling: A hammock-like implant device that was supposed to relieve women from embarrassing urine leaks has instead caused serious medical problems – some painful and irreversible.
Vaginal Sling Leads to Pain… and Scarring
The Mentor ObTape® Vaginal Sling transobturator device went to market in 2003 with promises it would replace weakened or ineffective muscles in the urethra and thereby control bladder incontinence.
However, one in six women who have had this sling implanted have experienced complications such as vaginal extrusion and urinary tract erosion, extreme vaginal pain, vaginal discharge, and infections. In fact, crippling pain has forced some to go back for removal surgery, enduring additional pain and further cost. And despite having the sling removed, many women still suffer from pain and permanent scarring.

Vaginal Sling Removed from Market
Within three years of introduction, the Mentor ObTape® Vaginal Sling was removed from the market. But during the three years it was available, thousands of women had the device implanted and many have had to endure ongoing medical complications as a result of this dangerous product.
