Transvaginal Surgical Mesh Litigation
The Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) has received over 1,000 reports from numerous manufacturers over the last three years regarding the severe health complications related to the use of transvaginal placement of surgical mesh. This mesh is used in the repair of Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) and Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI). We are investigating claims against the manufacturers of transvaginal mesh, including Johnson & Johnson, American Medical Systems, Boston Scientific, Bard and others.
Health problems associated with transvaginal mesh include infections, urinary problems, recurrence of prolapse or incontinence and erosion of the mesh after surgery. Some symptoms of transvaginal mesh complications include the following:
- Vaginal infections or discharge
- Pain during sex
- Lower backache
- Bowel movement difficulties
- Bladder outlet obstruction
- Perceived protrusion from the vagina
If you have any serious side effects that could be related to POP or SUI surgery, contact us today for a free case evaluation.
