Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits
Mass Torts Attorneys
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.
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.

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
- Urinary incontinence
- Painful intercourse
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.
