The Number Of Transvaginal Mesh Cases Are Growing

by Terry Bryant

Transvaginal mesh cases are mounting. In fact, more than 58,000 are pending in America’s courts at this very moment. If you have experienced complications as a result of the implant, you are not alone. All over the country, plaintiffs contend that they did not receive sufficient warning of the health risks involved and are now left to endure the physical and emotional repercussions.

Thousands of women who hoped the netlike device would correct a pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or alleviate stress urinary incontinence (SUI) submitted to surgery in good faith, trusting that the transvaginal mesh to be implanted in their bodies would bring permanent relief for their suffering. Instead, they unknowingly subjected themselves to serious complications.

For numerous patients, the implant produces problems like mesh erosion, pelvic hemorrhage, or bladder perforation. Many women and their partners find their love lives in shambles following the procedure, due to painful intercourse. Others still require additional surgeries to remove the implants and repair the damage left in their wake, resulting in even more physical pain, emotional trauma, and mental anguish.

If any of these manifestations sound familiar, you may want to consider speaking with a defective product lawyer—preferably one with experience in handling transvaginal mesh cases. The attorney will examine the evidence and advise you of your rights on moving forward with filing a case.
