On October 20, 2008, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued an FDA Warning regarding serious complications associated with transvaginal placement of surgical mesh. Over the last three years the FDA has received more than 1,000 reports from nine surgical mesh manufacturers of complications that were associated with surgical mesh devices used to repair Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Stress Urinary Incontinence.
If you have experienced transvaginal mesh side effects you may be entitled to compensation.
Such complications may include:
- Erosion of the mesh into the vagina
- Recurrences of prolapse
- Urinary problems
- Bowel, bladder and blood vessel perforations
- Injury to nearby organs
- Pain during sexual intercourse
- Pelvic pain
- Extrusion of the mesh device
Transvaginal mesh implant problems often require multiple surgeries to successfully remove the vaginal mesh. Even after surgery, some women are left with permanent or disfiguring injuries.
