vaginal mesh patch lawsuitsSome women who received transvaginal mesh/sling products (also called pelvic mesh or vaginal mesh) have suffered from serious complications. From 2005 to 2010, there have been nearly 4,000 injuries reported to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) following the placement of a transvaginal mesh device.

A transvaginal mesh patch is a surgically implanted device that stretches across the vaginal wall to add extra support to damaged tissues. By adding strength to damaged vaginal walls, the vaginal mesh patches can be effective treatment for a number of conditions that may occur after childbirth and pregnancy. The conditions they are normally designed to correct include pelvic organ prolapse (POP) – a condition in which organs of the lower abdominal region slip out of place – and stress urinary incontinence, which is characterized by the inability to control urination. Unfortunately, the failure of these products can lead to the need for multiple operations to remove the mesh and to repair extensive damage caused by the products.
