Pelvic Organ Prolapse - Transvaginal Surgical Mesh Lawyer Lawsuit

Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) refers to the displacement of the bladder, uterus, vagina, urethra, bowels or rectum due to the weakening of pelvic floor tissues. The typical procedure used to treat pelvic organ prolapse is to implant a transvaginal surgical mesh. It is important to understand however that in 2008 the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning linking various transvaginal mesh products to an increased rate of severe life-threatening side effects.

What is Transvaginal Surgical Mesh?

This procedure is common in the treatment of complications like stress urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, or any injury that damages the dexterity of the vaginal walls.

What is Pelvic Organ Prolapse?

Pelvic organ prolapse is characterized by a weakening of the pelvic floor tissues, leading to displacement of the bladder, uterus, vagina, urethra, bowels or rectum.

Causes of Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Pelvic organ prolapse is usually caused by damage to the tissues that support the pelvic organs. When these tissues become damaged, organs become disoriented and have a tendency to move out of their normal positions. This movement causes the organs to both press against and move the inside walls of the vagina. Having a baby greatly increases the chance of contracting pelvic organ prolapse in the future because of the stress it puts in the pelvic area.
