Transvaginal And Hernia Mesh Failures
No One Deserves Transvaginal Mesh Injuries
Transvaginal mesh is a medical device used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. It became a popular choice for doctors and patients despite warnings from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). After receiving their implants, many patients experienced painful consequences that required surgical intervention.

What Is Transvaginal Mesh?
Transvaginal mesh is an implanted screen made of metal or polymer that is used to reinforce weak tissue or bone.” While using mesh materials for surgical implants is not new, according to the National Institutes of Health, its use as a treatment for pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence has increased over the past decade with mixed results.
Transvaginal mesh is primarily used to treat two conditions suffered by millions of women in the United States:
- Pelvic organ prolapse is a condition in which weakness in the pelvic floor causes organs — such as the bladder, uterus, rectum, vaginal apex or bowel — to bulge through the vaginal wall.
- Stress urinary incontinence is a condition in which diminished bladder control causes urine to leak during such activities as sneezing, coughing, laughing, exercise or other physical actions.
Problems With Transvaginal Mesh
Patients have experienced a range of complications after having the transvaginal mesh implanted, including:
- Improper implantation of the device
- Exposure and contraction
- Adhesion to the bowel
- Severe pain during intercourse
- Defective devices
Defective mesh may even erode into the vagina or perforate tissue and blood vessels. These serious injuries may require her to undergo further complicated surgeries and pharmaceutical intervention, resulting in long-term health problems.
Do You Have Symptoms Of Transvaginal Mesh Failure?
Your doctor should advise you on recognizing adverse issues after your transvaginal mesh implantation surgery. Symptoms of a defective product include:
- Vaginal irritation and discomfort
- Pelvic pain
- Recurrence of prolapse or incontinence
Hernia mesh failures are similar to transvaginal mesh failures, except the locations of the failures are different.
If you suspect your transvaginal or hernia mesh has failed, we recommend you contact a medical professional immediately to avoid further injuries. Our lawyer can then help you recover compensation from your negligent doctors and the manufacturer of the defective device.
