Vaginal Mesh Lawsuit Lawyer
For women who have pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or stress urinary incontinence (SUI), surgical intervention using a vaginal mesh has been a common treatment option. Unfortunately, using a vaginal mesh has proven to be dangerous, causing serious complications that can lead to pain, infection, sexual discomfort and many other severe side effects. If you have received POP or SUI treatment involving vaginal mesh and had subsequent injuries from this medical product, you may be eligible to receive compensation.
When POP or SUI occurs, the tissues in the vaginal canal can weaken and allow reproductive organs to shift or move. Surgical intervention has been used to strengthen the vaginal walls using vaginal mesh, helping to reduce shifting of the bladder, bowels and reproductive organs. While surgical mesh is used in many surgical procedures, transvaginal use has a much higher risk of failure and does not offer additional benefits over other treatment options.
Injuries Caused by Vaginal Mesh Surgery
When vaginal mesh or bladder slings are used to treat pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence, the results are often successful. Not only does the operation often fail, it can have other injuries. Women who have undergone vaginal mesh surgeries to treat POP or SUI and have suffered injuries such as:
- Erosion of the mesh
- Painful sexual intercourse
- Perforation of the bladder or other organs
- Pain and discomfort
- Urinary problems
After a vaginal mesh surgery, women often need to have the vaginal mesh removed and may suffer from long-term effects from the injuries caused by the vaginal mesh.
If you have been injured due to a vaginal mesh surgery to treat POP or SUI, you may be able to receive compensation.
