Understanding transvaginal mesh litigation
During the past 20 years, the use of transvaginal mesh has increased significantly. Transvaginal mesh is typically used to treat conditions such as Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) and Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI). The mesh is designed to support weakened muscles and damaged tissues. There are different types and variations of transvaginal mesh including:
• Synthetic mesh made from man-made materials that can be absorbable, non-absorbable or a combination of the two
• Mesh composed of animal tissues such as intestine or skin
There are several different transvaginal mesh manufacturers including:
• American Medical Systems
• Boston Scientific
• Coloplast Corporation
• C.R. Bard, Inc.
• Ethicon, Inc.
Following the increase in the use of transvaginal mesh, many patients began experiencing additional complications as a result of the implantation. Before undergoing mesh implantation, your doctor has a duty to provide adequate notice of the potential complications and FDA warnings regarding transvaginal mesh. Common medical consequences of transvaginal mesh include:
• Mesh erosion
• Painful intercourse
• Organ perforation
• Urinary complications
People react in different ways to the implantation of surgical mesh and it is important to seek advice if you experience any complications. In many cases, you may be able to recover damages as a result of your transvaginal mesh problems to compensate you for lost wages, additional medical expenses and pain and suffering.
