Transvaginal Mesh Products Cause Severe Health Issues

Bookmark and Share

Transvaginal mesh is used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence – two conditions prevalent in women following childbirth, hysterectomy and menopause. However, in 2011, the Food and Drug Administration issued a safety advisory warning of the potential health risks associated with transvaginal mesh products and recommended alternative types of treatment to patients. Complications allegedly resulting from transvaginal mesh implants include:

  • Bleeding
  • Urinary problems, incontinence
  • Mesh erosion
  • Vaginal scarring
  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • Infection
  • Extreme pain
  • Blood vessel, bladder or bowel perforation
  • Inability to sit

The breadth and severity of health issues associated with transvaginal mesh devices has led to several lawsuits against various manufacturers of transvaginal mesh products. The attorneys at Ward Black Law are currently investigating potential transvaginal mesh lawsuits in North Carolina and across the United States. If you or a loved one has suffered from serious complications or side effects resulting from a surgical mesh implant, you deserve to know your rights. We encourage you to contact a dangerous medical devices attorney at Ward Black Law of N.C. today.
