How does the transvaginal mesh patch work?
The transvaginal mesh patch is a surgically implanted device designed to help support vaginal walls damaged by childbirth, abdominal injuries, or surgery. As damaged organs begin to slip out of place, a condition known as pelvic organ prolapse (POP) develops. POP symptoms may include (but are not limited to):
- disturbances in normal bladder or rectal function
- feelings of pelvic pressure, heaviness, bulging or pain
- recurring bladder infections
- excessive vaginal discharge
- discomfort or lack of sensation during sexual intercourse
Transvaginal mesh problems
In the last five years alone, over 1,000 patients have suffered serious complications following the use of a transvaginal mesh device. Complications include reports of:
- erosion of vaginal tissue
- mesh erosion
- perforations of the bowel, bladder or blood vessels
- recurrence of Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) and Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI)
- urinary problems
- vaginal scarring
FDA reports include numerous examples of women who experienced horrible side effects after undergoing surgery where transvaginal mesh was used. Some patients endure months of unnecessary pain that interferes with their daily lives in a profound way. In many cases, the pain is linked to the surgical mesh eroding, which has eroded into the vaginal, bladder, and bowel tissues. If you or a loved one has experienced such an injury after having a transvaginal mesh device implanted, our lawyers may be able to help you seek compensation for your injury.
