Transvaginal mesh is a well-known treatment option for women who suffer from stress urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse. Too often, however, these meshes create devastating problems for patients.
Today, thousands of women suffer physical and emotional trauma as well as financial and mental distress due to manufacturer issues like poor testing and design. Salim-Beasley, LLC is dedicated to representing women against companies that produce harmful transvaginal mesh products.
What Injuries Can Defective Transvaginal Mesh Cause?
Complications from mesh implants often cause more damage to the patient than the ailment that it was intended to treat. The emotional and physical harm may affect the patient’s relationships, career and daily activities.
Some medical professionals argue that transvaginal mesh can cause complications such as:
- Lower back pain
- Erosion or scarring of the vaginal tissue
- Perforations of the blood vessels, bladder and bowel
- Painful sexual intercourse
- New or recurring urinary problems
Doctors need to know if their patient could be at serious risk of harm due to retraction and contraction of the mesh, which often requires surgical intervention. Our attorneys are able to investigate whether a manufacturer failed to advise physicians on the risks associated with their mesh product.
Unfortunately, these medical devices rarely work as intended. Transvaginal mesh implants typically have a high rate of failure. Many women who have undergone transvaginal mesh surgeries have later filed medical device lawsuits against the manufacturers. These cases are consolidated into one large mass tort lawsuit, which awaits results in the U.S District Courts.
