Pelvic Mesh / Transvaginal Mesh

Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits

What Is Transvaginal Mesh?

Transvaginal mesh, or pelvic mesh, is a product many doctors have used to fix a pelvic prolapse. Pelvic prolapses occur due to a weakening in the muscles that hold your pelvic organs in place. This muscle weakness often occurs from the stretching childbirth causes or from abdominal surgeries. The transvaginal mesh is used to prevent organs like the bladder from prolapsing, or dropping from their normal place in your lower belly and pushing against the walls of the vagina.

Pelvic / transvaginal mesh is a hammock-like, synthetic material inserted into patients to prevent organs from dropping out of place and falling into the body. While it may have seemed like a good idea on paper, these procedures have ended up doing significant harm to numerous women.

What Can Go Wrong?

Many women will have some kind of pelvic organ prolapse. To prevent the complications from a pelvic organ prolapse, surgeons began using mesh as a means of repair as early as the 1970s. It wasn’t until 1996 that the FDA approved Boston Scientific’s transvaginal mesh device, which was specifically designed for the treatment and repair of pelvic organ prolapse.

Several meshes end up eroding through internal tissues, damaging organs and embedding themselves in various body parts. The surgery became popular sometime in the late 1990’s. Eventually problems started to emerge. By 2008, the FDS finally began keeping records of reported incidents, and in two short years, the number of reports reached over 1,500.

Our Transvaginal mesh lawyers are here to help the overwhelming number of women experiencing problems with their medical devices.

Types of Transvaginal Injuries

One of the most troubling aspects of transvaginal meshes is that the injuries are very difficult to fix. Patients may find themselves going to a doctor for revision surgery multiple times because the surgeon is unable to fix the problem in one go around. This is because transvaginal meshes were designed to stay in the body indefinitely, and removing them is extremely difficult.

Common problems resulting from transvaginal meshes include:

  • Tissue growing around mesh
  • Nerve damage
  • Infection
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Painful intercourse
  • Bleeding

If you trusted the advice of a medical professional regarding transvaginal mesh and are now suffering due to this defective product, you should not be responsible for the numerous medical bills resulting from a physician’s mistake.

Common Symptoms of Transvaginal Mesh Device Failure

Since that time, it is believed that the transvaginal mesh device has had a failure rate as high as 10%, meaning one in every 10 women who received a transvaginal mesh device experienced serious complications. For those who may have had a transvaginal mesh placed, symptoms that indicate the failure of your device include pelvic or vaginal pain. This pain may only occur during sexual intercourse. Other symptoms include:

  • Bleeding
  • Persistent discharge
  • Return of the previously treated condition

As you may know, the problems resulting from the transvaginal mesh have resulted in numerous lawsuits. There are several companies facing product liability lawsuits from women who have been harmed as a result of their transvaginal mesh device. If you or someone you know is interested in finding out more about transvaginal mesh device lawsuits, or you think you may have a case, please call us today and schedule your free consultation.
