Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits
You may have heard about transvaginal mesh lawsuits. Transvaginal mesh was a hammock like synthetic netting that was intended to be surgically implanted in victims of pelvic prolapse. Pelvic prolapse is when a female’s pelvic muscles weaken to the point that her pelvic organs, including the bladder, rectum and uterus, drop into the vagina. The mesh is surgically implanted in the vagina to support the prolapsed organs.
However, many women began to experience horrible complications and failures of the device. For example, some women have experienced mesh cutting through the vaginal lining and nearby organs. This has resulted in organ perforation, severe infections, bleeding, pain during intercourse, constipation and urinary incontinence. Often, multiple revision surgeries are necessary to correct these problems. Tens of thousands of these revision surgeries have been performed. Some have resulted in deaths.
If you or a loved one had transvaginal mesh implanted to treat pelvic prolapse, you may have a claim for damages and compensation against the manufacturers of this defectively designed and marketed product.
