Surgical and Transvaginal Mesh Facts
Surgical mesh procedures have been performed as a way to further repair or reinforce internal tissue that has been damaged and can’t heal on its own. Transvaginal surgical mesh is typically used to treat weakened vaginal walls, such as after childbirth, urinary incontinence, and to treat prolapsed organs.
Unfortunately, surgical mesh products have not have performed as expected, and have caused devastating and life changing complications to those women who have had transvaginal mesh procedures. In some cases, the product has proven fatal.
Reported Complications and Side Effects
Surgical mesh or transvaginal mesh is a foreign body implanted into patients. With the introduction of a foreign body into the system, the risks of complications grow. Many of the negative side effects and complications have made life with a transvaginal or surgical mesh more painful than the actual condition that led to its implantation.
Severe and debilitating complications have arisen for many patients and therefore, more surgeries and procedures needed afterwards have led to further complications. Some of the reported complications include:
- Vaginal and pelvic pain
- Painful intercourse
- Painful urination
- Narrowing of vaginal walls and vaginal bleeding
- Reoccurrence of previous condition, such as pelvic prolapse
- Septic shock
- Mesh erosion
Any of these complications can lead to more medical expenses, more surgeries, more invasive and/or uncomfortable procedures, out-of-pocket expenses, lost wages, lost earning capacity, and the loss of enjoyment of life.
A transvaginal mesh and/or surgical mesh lawsuit may be necessary to adequately compensate you for the financial and emotional damages caused by this harmful product.
Public Alert Leads to Influx of Lawsuits
Beginning in 2008, the Food and Drug Administration issued an alert due to the increase in complications found with the use of surgical mesh. The aftermath has resulted in tens of thousands of lawsuits being filed.
