Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits
Medical Injury Attorney
If you or someone you love is suffering from erosion, pain or other serious side effects after receiving a
transvaginal mesh implant, you need to move quickly to retain legal counsel. A
medical injury attorney can determine whether you have grounds for a lawsuit against the manufacturer of the defective mesh implant. You may face considerable medical expenses, pain and suffering and other damages. A lawyer who is skilled in handling cases related to defective medical devices can work to hold the manufacturer accountable, seeking financial compensation that will cover your medical care and possibly much more.
Transvaginal mesh products were created to treat pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence. This is a type of surgical mesh, similar to a woven fabric, which is surgically implanted in the vagina. It is used to create a bladder sling or pelvic sling and may be used to help reinforce the vaginal wall. It is estimated that approximately 300,000 women in the U.S. had pelvic organ prolapse surgery in 2010, and about one in four received transvaginal mesh implants.
Instead of finding a solution in the face of pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence, some women have suffered from serious health problems caused by transvaginal mesh products. These health problems may include:
- Vaginal shrinkage
- Urinary problems
- Vaginal wall or organ perforation
To repair the problem, some women may require additional surgeries to remove the mesh, but this does not always handle the problem. Pain and discomfort may continue, and a woman may require additional medical treatment.
