Vaginal Mesh Lawsuit Lawyers
Have you or a loved been implanted with a vaginal mesh sling? You should know that the United States Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) has issued warnings over findings that the product increases risks of further irreversible complications. Women who have had these devices implanted may be entitled to compensation for complications related to the use and surgical removal.
A surgical mesh is generally a device used to strengthen weakened or damaged pelvic tissue and organs. In women, a vaginal mesh is used for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) – a weakening of the tissue holding the pelic organs in place. It is also used to treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI) – a leaking of urine during physical activity or coughing, sneezing, laughing or sneezing.
Complications from the use of a vaginal mesh include:
- Mesh Contraction (shrinkage). Shrinkage causes severe pain in addition to vaginal tightening and vaginal shortening.
- Mesh Erosion. Vaginal mesh erosion is the most common complication and can result in many surgeries to repair. In some cases, it cannot be corrected.
Whether the complication from using the vaginal mesh is contraction or erosion, the painful results include severe pelvic and vaginal pain.
If you or a loved one used a transvaginal mesh, you should contact a board certified personal injury trial lawyer as soon as possible.
