LOUIS -- Complaints of vaginal discharge, bleeding, and/or general vaginal discomfort in a patient who has undergone sling placement may signal vaginal mesh erosion.
Patients with vaginal mesh erosion might also note that their partner "feels something" in the vagina during intercourse.
2005), cavitations erosion
is considered, by specialists, a typical local fatigue phenomena of the material, which suffered deformations or/and breakings under repeating action of micro jets and shock waves generated by cavitation bubbles implosion.
More severe erosions
occurred about 60% more often in men than in women.
Measurements were made of: (a) actual erosions
, deposition and changes in surface roughness at over 100 pre-existing and new sites over periods of 1-9 years using the erosion
bridge (microprofiler) technique; (b) infiltration capacity, overland flow, splash detachment and overland flow erosion
at small (30 x 30 cm.
Computed tomography (CT) demonstrated extensive bony and soft-tissue erosions
intranasally (figure 3).
Following last winter's storms, the Army Corps of Engineers identified an additional 71 erosions
sites in critical need of repair.
found four mesh erosions
over a mean 1-year follow-up.
