Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits
Transvaginal mesh is a medical product created to treat SUI (stress urinary incontinence) and POP (pelvic organ prolapse) in women. Other common names for the product include pelvic mesh, pubovaginal sling, pelvic sling, bladder support and pelvic lift.
Surgical mesh is also used to repair hernias, which occur when organs squeeze through a weak spot in the surrounding muscle or connective tissue. The mesh provides support to the weakened area.
Following the implantation of the mesh, many women have experienced serious injuries — so much so that the Food and Drug Administration issued a warning regarding the product and procedure. Currently, no recall has been issued for mesh products, but studies are being conducted as to its safety.
Injuries And Side Effects Associated With Transvaginal Mesh
Women who have been injured by transvaginal mesh face a range of complications and injuries, such as:
- Urinary/fecal incontinence
- Mesh erosion
- Organ perforation
- Dysuria: difficult or painful discharge of urine
- Dyspareunia: pain during intercourse
There is always the option to have the mesh removed, but even after doing so, some internal damage may be permanent. This can lead to a lifetime of pain for many women.
