Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit
Transvaginal Mesh Recall
More than 108,000 lawsuits have been filed alleging that transvaginal mesh causes complications, including pain, bleeding, infection, and organ perforation.
What Is A Transvaginal Mesh?
A transvaginal mesh, also known as a pelvic mesh, is a mesh device that is surgically inserted transvaginally for the treatment of women’s gynecological and urogynecological issues, such as pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence.
Side Effects and Complications Associated with Transvaginal Mesh
The mesh is associated with the development of several side effects, including mesh erosion through the vaginal wall. Complications with the mesh also include infection, pain, urinary problems, recurrence of prolapse, incontinence, bladder perforation, vaginal scarring, pain during sexual intercourse, and other problems. These problems can lead to a significant decrease in quality of life due to discomfort and pain.
