Transvaginal mesh surgery was introduced as a way to repair stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. However, this surgery has been reported as causing serious medical complications. This surgery involves a fibrous mesh being inserted through the vagina. When this mesh has been inserted, it disintegrates and then it penetrates into the nearby tissues and organs. This results to the patients having internal injuries. Patients of TVM surgery become a victim of transvaginal mesh erosion and other complications. The most common complication that most victims suffer is the vaginal mesh erosion. This is caused by the disintegration of the mesh inserted. Removing the eroded mesh is very complicated because the mesh may have already become entwined with the organs or tissues. The vaginal mesh erosion causes fistula and pus-filled abscesses. All these inflict pain on the victim.
Female health problems like pelvic organ prolapse could be corrected through transvaginal mesh surgery. However, as soon as the transvaginal mesh (TVM) surgery was introduced in USA, the drug administration department began to receive a lot of negative reports from patients complaining about the complications associated with that surgery. The common reported complications of TVM include endless pain, urinary problems, infections and recurrence of the urinary incontinence or prolapse. Some of the patients have suffered perforation of the bowel, bladder and blood vessels after the surgery. Latest reports show that TVM is not effective. It is not able to deliver the treatment for which it was designed to provide. A patient who has undergone TVM may develop very serious complications. This has made many patients who underwent this surgery to seek the services of TVM lawyers so as to discuss the legal measure to be taken.
A transvaginal mesh is a small hammock of plastic mesh meant to fix pelvic organs’ disorders. Unfortunately, this device can erode into the pelvic tissue and bring about a number of internal complications such as organ perforation and infections. A major reason for these negative effects of the transvaginal mesh is the reason that no extensive live testing on humans was done before being sold to women in the marketplace. In July 2011, the FDA acknowledged that the transvaginal mesh can cause complications. A number of women have already filed lawsuits. There are those that are suffering in silence since they lack information or are afraid of taking on the billion dollar companies that manufacture these devices in a transvaginal mesh lawsuit. As a woman suffering in silence, you have a legal right to file a transvaginal mesh lawsuit. You can get two kinds of compensation.
