Many women with pelvic organ prolapse have been surgically treated with transvaginal mesh. The FDA issued a safety alert in 2008 concerning serious complications associated with these mesh devices. Several manufactures of transvaginal mesh are being held accountable of the potentially serious injuries women can suffer from these defective medical products.
The complications include:
- Mesh Erosion
- Significant Pain
- Internal Bleeding
- Vaginal Scaring
- Painful Sexual Intercourse
- Recurrence of Prolapse or incontinence
If you have been treated with transvaginal mesh and have experienced these or other abnormal symptoms you should contact an experienced attorney.
