About Transvaginal Mesh (TVM) Lawsuits
On October 20, 2008 the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued an urgent public health notification to physicians and patients regarding serious complications associated with transvaginal placement of surgical mesh in repair of Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) and Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI). Incredibly, over at least the last three years, the FDA has received over 1,000 reports from at least nine surgical mesh manufacturers regarding serious complications related to the placement and use of transvaginal mesh products. We are here to try and help you after you have likely endured pain and suffering from these medical products.
The FDA in 2011 released yet another notification about Transvaginal Mesh devices. We represent women across the United States and Canada who need help with injuries received from TVM devices.
There are a variety of injuries associated with the transvaginal mesh, TVM and TVT device. Some recipients experience pain almost immediately, but others develop pain over time, including a different pain that develops after the initial pain of surgery begins to wear off. Some of our clients have reported the following symptoms and injuries:
- Erosion of vaginal tissue
- Urinary problems
- Recurrence of Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) and Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI)
- Perforations of the bowel, bladder or blood vessels
- Vaginal scarring
- Mesh erosion
Many times, sexual intercourse is impossible, and daily chores such as walking up stairs can seem impossible. You could be losing time away from work, or time away from your family and friends. You also may have experienced numerous revision or repair surgeries, some of which resulted in there being mesh left inside of you. We have clients who have suffered from these very problems. You are not alone, and we would encourage you to call us for help.
Reports of Transvaginal Mesh Complications
Since 2005, more than 1,000 patients have suffered from serious complications from the placement of a transvaginal mesh device. The transvaginal mesh is a type of medical device used to treat Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) and Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI), conditions that may occur after childbirth and pregnancy. If you or someone you loved has been injured, you have the legal right to pursue monetary compensation in a court of law.
In October 2008, the FDA issued a public health notification alerting healthcare providers and the public to the increasing number of serious health issues associated with the transvaginal mesh. Complications reported to the FDA include meshes from nine different manufacturers. Transvaginal meshes are implanted through surgery. According to the FDA, contributing factors to complications potentially include the patient’s health, mesh material, the size and shape of the mesh, surgical procedures and estrogen levels.
