Thousands of women were injured after they received the transvaginal mesh implant. This synthetic mesh was previously thought to be a successful remedy to conditions like pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The FDA has strongly warned that there is an extremely high failure rate and risk of injury associated with transvaginal mesh, and many women have successfully filed lawsuits against manufacturers like C.R. Bard, Ethicon, American Medical Systems and Boston Scientific.
Complications from implant of transvaginal mesh patches include:
- Vaginal Tissue Erosion
- Vaginal Infection
- Vaginal Pain
- Urinary Problems
- Reoccurrence of POP and SUI
- Multiple Revision Surgeries
Complications listed above many times require women to have multiple painful revision surgeries in order to completely remove the transvaginal mesh patch. Revision surgery complications can include:
- Extreme pain during intercourse;
- Damage to the bladder, bowel, urethra, and nearby organs;
- Severe pain in the abdomen or pelvis; and
- Heavy vaginal discharge.
