If you have had a transvaginal mesh surgically implanted and experiencing pain or injury as a result you need to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney at the Dolman Law Group.
It is natural for women to trust their physicians, especially when their doctor is treating a very private vaginal condition. This is obviously an extremely sensitive issue for many women. As a treatment for Pelvic Organ Prolapse, many women are recommended for transvaginal mesh. A transvaginal mesh is a surgically implanted device that was expected to assist with that condition. However, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) indicates that reports of potentially life-altering complications from transvaginal mesh patches are increasing at an alarming rate.
Complications from Transvaginal Mesh include:
- A 700% greater risk of bladder perforation.
- Frequent and persistent pain.
- Surgical complications.
- Vaginal Scarring
- Pain during vaginal intercourse
The treatment for these reported complications can be evasive, painful, and expensive. Treatments include surgery, IV Therapy, blood transfusions, and abscess drainages.
With increased reports of complications, lawsuits against transvaginal mesh manufacturers are rising. Recently, more than 17,000 women injured by transvaginal mesh patches have filed lawsuits against manufacturers. In a majority of these lawsuits, women have suited the manufacturer of the transvaginal mesh product used in their operation, not the surgeon that performed the operation. A woman injured by transvaginal mesh can file a lawsuit without having to sue her doctor. For more information on which manufacturers produce which products go here.
