Vaginal mesh is a medical product made out of synthetic mesh inserted through the vagina to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP). However, even though the medical device is known to be effective in fixing POP, in recent years there have several accounts of woman suffering serious problems and complications as a result of the implant.
Any woman who has experienced problems after receiving a vaginal mesh, or any type of surgical mesh or bladder sling, due to the design of the pelvic support system being defective or dangerous does have legal rights and may be able to sue for her injuries.
Some of the most common complications a woman may suffer after having a transvaginal mesh implant, and may be able to sue for include:
- Organ perforation
- Mesh Erosions
- Urinary Incontinence
- Chronic Pain
- Other Serious Health Issues
The major medical manufacturers liable for developing these devices include C.R. Bard, Endo Health Solutions (American Medical Systems), Boston Scientific Corp., Coloplast and Cook Medical, and Ethicon’s Gynecare. In fact, in recent news, more than 11,000 defective medical device claims have been filed against American Medical Systems alone by women who are suffering serious harm due to the defective nature of the product.
