Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits Lawyer
For many women that received transvaginal mesh implants, trying to treat one health problem was made much worse with the use of these medical devices. Thousands of women have been harmed with vaginal mesh procedures, resulting in pain, infection, revision surgeries and many other health complications. If you suffered injuries due to vaginal mesh implants, you may be eligible to seek compensation to cover your costs, as well as for pain and suffering.
Dangers of Transvaginal Mesh
The use of a transvaginal mesh has been used to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). This synthetic or biological mesh is used to contain and support organs like the uterus, rectum and bladder near the reproductive area, implanted as a net or sling. Unfortunately, this method of treatment has had poor success in treating POP, especially due to the dangers of the vaginal mesh, including:
- Organ perforation
- Severe pain
- Revision surgery requirements
- Scarring and nerve damage
The complications have far outweighed the benefits. In fact, the transvaginal mesh has been outlawed in some other countries since 2017 due to these dangers. In the U.S., thousands of reports of injury from these devices have been filed with the FDA, which has classified vaginal mesh as a “high risk” device. In the aftermath, many lawsuits have been filed on behalf of the victims. There have been multi-million-dollar cases that have been won to compensate these women for their injuries caused by transvaginal mesh.
