Transvaginal (Pelvic) Mesh
Surgical Mesh Lawyers
Have you had complications after pelvic surgery for Pelvic Organ Prolapse or Stress Urinary Incontinence? Many women have surgery to remedy these serious medical problems. Unfortunately, some of the systems used can cause more problems than they solve, resulting in serious injuries resulting from the use of pelvic mesh. If you suffered from serious injury after surgery, you may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturers of these products, who did not fully disclose the risks and benefits of using their products.
Some of the problems which have been reported include erosion of mesh devices and shrinkage of mesh product. These problems can lead to serious injuries including:
- Serious infections
- Bladder, bowel and blood vessel punctures and erosions
- Scarring and narrowing of the vaginal wall
- Pain during sexual intercourse
The manufacturers of these products promoted them with gynecologists and were dismissive of research that showed that surgery to correct Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Stress Urinary Incontinence was just as effective without the use of implanted mesh. So the worst possible case scenario is that women who underwent these surgeries could suffer serious injuries because of the use of mesh, even though the use of vaginal mesh was not necessary to correct the underlying medical problem.
Some of the manufacturers of pelvic mesh products include:
- Boston Scientific
- Johnson & Johnson
- CF Bard and Co.
