Countless Women Suffer Needlessly From Transvaginal Mesh
Transvaginal mesh (TVM) is a surgical mesh used to purportedly strengthen and repair tissue weakened and stretched by medical conditions such as stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. This surgical mesh made from synthetic materials is inserted via the vagina and has resulted in numerous painful and tragic complications for many women. Complications have included pain, bleeding, scarring of tissue, tissue erosion, infection, incontinence, bladder injuries, bowel injuries and painful sexual intercourse. Data suggests testing of the product was inadequate, and in 2008, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued a public alert about the complications related to TVM. In 2011, the FDA published an updated alert stating the complications were NOT rare. Johnson & Johnson recalled its TVM products related to these complications in 2012. There are numerous other manufacturers of TVM products.
This is understandably an embarrassing, private and difficult issue to discuss with strangers, but if you or a loved one is suffering from or has suffered from complications of TVM, a valuable legal claim could exist.
