Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits

Transvaginal mesh(TVM) has been shown to cause infections, painful sexual intercourse & chronic pain in Women. Trans-vaginal mesh, which has been a popular treatment in recent years for Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) and chronic incontinence, has also been linked to painful complications for hundreds of thousands of women across the country including urinary tract infections, painful intercourse and chronic pain.

If you are experiencing complications as a result of trans-vaginal mesh, you could be eligible for compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering.

What is Transvaginal Mesh?

Originally developed in the 1950’s for use in abdominal surgery to repair hernias, surgical mesh was adapted to treat Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP), a condition in which weak pelvic muscles allow the bladder, rectum or reproductive organs to fall down into the vagina. The mesh is also used to reinforce the bladder in some cases of chronic incontinence and is often referred to as a bladder sling.

What’s most attractive about this particular surgical mesh product is not the device itself, but the way it is implanted. Patients don’t require complicated surgery. Instead, the mesh is placed transvaginally, using the vagina as a conduit that makes placement a simple procedure.

Unfortunately, complications have made this procedure a nightmare for hundreds of thousands of women across the country.

What are the risks?

Since 2008, the FDA has continually received reports of serious complications associated with the transvaginal placement of surgical mesh for Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP). The FDA issued a public notification and additional patient information in both 2008 and 2011 regarding the matter.

The FDA has issued new warnings concerning transvaginal mesh, classifying the device as high-risk, due to complaints from thousands of women concerning chronic pain, frequent infections and painful intercourse.

Side Effects / Complications

When the mesh is placed through the vagina (transvaginal) to treat POP or Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) it can cause many complications, including:

  • The Need for Corrective Surgery
