Transvaginal mesh, also called surgical mesh, is a special net-like implant designed to repair pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI) – two conditions that commonly affect women following a hysterectomy, childbirth or menopause. Although vaginal mesh products like Bard Avaulta mesh were developed as a means of helping women suffering from these conditions, new research suggests that transvaginal mesh devices may be neither safer nor more effective than more traditional treatments. In fact, research shows that women who receive a vaginal mesh implant may actually be at risk for serious complications, including infection, organ perforation and erosion of the vaginal tissues. If you received a transvaginal mesh implant and you have since suffered a major complication, fill out the form now to discuss your legal options with a qualified mesh lawyer.

Surgical Mesh Side Effects

Although transvaginal mesh surgery – in which surgical mesh is implanted through the vagina – is simpler and less invasive than traditional POP and SUI treatments, it also carries a higher risk of complications. In fact, in 2011, the FDA reported that it had received an alarming 4,000 reports of side effects related to vaginal mesh in the previous six years. The following are some of the most common side effects of transvaginal mesh:

  • Mesh erosion
  • Scarring
  • Infection
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Organ perforation
  • Urinary problems

Types of Transvaginal Mesh

Surgical mesh was first introduced as a means of repairing a hernia in the 1950s, and surgeons began using the mesh to surgically repair POP and SUI in the 1970s, before the products were developed to treat these particular conditions. Today, there are a number of companies that manufacture surgical mesh devices specifically designed to treat POP and SUI, and the following are some of the most popular devices, many of which have been recalled due to safety concerns:

  • Boston Scientific’s ProtoGen Sling (recalled in 1999)
  • Ethicon’s Gynecare mesh (recalled in 2012)
  • C.R. Bard’s Bard Avaulta mesh (recalled in 2012)
  • American Medical System’s vaginal mesh
  • Coloplast Corp.’s transvaginal mesh
  • Cook Medical’s surgical mesh

If you have been implanted with a recalled or potentially defective vaginal mesh device, consult a transvaginal mesh lawyer today to explore your possible compensation options.
