An overview of transvaginal mesh and its dangers

Posted on November 16, 2014 1:43 pm under Defective medical products

Transvaginal mesh is prescribed for women suffering from pelvic floor disorders, such as pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). It is made of synthetic material implanted transvaginally or through the abdomen, and is designed to provide support for pelvic organs.

Over the years, however, more and more women in the U.S. are filing legal claims against its makers over allegations that transvaginal mesh may cause adverse effects, such as abdominal pain, vaginal bleeding, pelvic pain, urinary incontinence, vaginal discharge, infection, and vaginal scarring. According to several studies, these adverse effects are due to the device’s tendency to displace, erode and break.

If you have suffered from any of the above side-effects after a POP or SUI surgery involving transvaginal mesh, consider taking legal action by speaking with one of our Milwaukee personal injury attorneys at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®.
