The side effects and injuries resulting from a transvaginal mesh have proven to cause serious injuries to women. When a patient is injured, it can give rise to a lawsuit against the manufacturer of the medical device. These defective transvaginal mesh lawsuits often result in significant settlements.
What is Transvaginal Mesh?
Transvaginal mesh is a medical product made out of synthetic mesh inserted through the vagina to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP). However, even though it is known to be effective treatment for pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence, recent studies have linked several serious complications to this medical device. In fact, in July of 2011, the FDA warned surgeons and patients that surgical placement of mesh through the vagina to repair pelvic organ prolapse may expose patients to greater risk than other surgical options.
Transvaginal Mesh Complication Lawsuits
A common complication associated with the transvaginal mesh implant is erosion which can cause organ perforation. Organ perforation is one of the most dangerous side effects of this medical device. Some of the other common dangerous side effects also include chronic pain, infection, urinary problems, and recurrence of prolapse. When a woman suffers from any of these serious complications treatment can include additional procedures such as having the mesh removed or undergoing surgical revision.
Patients suffering serious complications or injuries after receiving a transvaginal mesh implant do have legal rights and may have a possible lawsuit against the manufacturer of the mesh. Some of the most common manufacturers include C.R. Bard’s Avaulta, Ethicon’s Gynecare, American Medial Systems, Boston Scientific Scimmed’s Pinnacle, as well as others. Due to the manufacturer’s failure to warn individuals of the defective nature of the medical device, they may be held liable for those who suffer complications.
