A team of class action attorneys and personal injury lawyers has launched an investigation into transvaginal surgical mesh or TVM (i.e., surgical mesh implanted through the vagina) and related surgical mesh products (i.e., patches, tapes and sling devices) that are used for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and pelvic organ prolapse (POP).
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) has reportedly issued a safety communication warning health care providers and patients that surgical placement of mesh through the vagina to repair pelvic organ prolapse POP may expose patients to greater risks.
According to the FDA, hundreds of thousands of women each year undergo surgical procedures to repair stress urinary incontinence SUI and pelvic organ prolapse POP, with approximately one out of three POP surgeries using mesh, and three out of four of the mesh POP procedures being done transvaginally, while over 80 percent of SUI surgeries are done transvaginally with mesh.
Transvaginal surgical mesh lawsuit claims potentially being investigated include cases of women who have experienced the following complications, symptoms, side effects and/or injuries following stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and pelvic organ prolapse (POP) surgery where transvaginal surgical mesh TVM was involved:
- erosion of the mesh into the vagina
- skin split or mesh protrudes
- urinary problems
- pelvic pain
- vaginal pain
- pain urinating
- pain during sex
- vaginal scarring
- narrowing of vaginal wall
- mesh shrinkage
- recurrence of stress urinary incontinence SUI
- recurrence of pelvic organ prolapse POP
- punctures or injury to nearby organs
- corrective or revision surgery
- hardening of vaginal mesh
