Transvaginal Mesh

If you or a loved one has experienced serious injuries after receiving a transvaginal mesh implant, you may be entitled to compensation.

Vaginal mesh implants are medical devices used to treat female urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse by creating support in the female pelvic floor. These implants are generally made of synthetic polypropylene material. Many thousands of women have been implanted with one or more of these mesh implants and have suffered complications many of which have been severe and life altering.

Side effects and complications of vaginal mesh implants include:

  • Erosion of the mesh into the vagina, urethra, bladder and other tissues;
  • Severe pain including pain with sexual intercourse;
  • Failure of the device resulting in urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse;
  • Inflammation; and
  • Infection including significant and/or chronic urinary tract infection.

Treatment for complications associated with implantation of transvaginal mesh can be prolonged and difficult. Many women have had multiple surgeries to remove mesh and remain in constant severe pain.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a health advisory in 2008 regarding transvaginal mesh implants. (Click to read 2008 advisory.) Again, in 2011 the FDA issued a warning to physicians regarding the use of multiple polypropolene mesh implants.(Click to read 2011 advisory.) As a result, many vaginal mesh implant products have been taken off or removed from the market.
