What is Transvaginal Mesh?
Transvaginal mesh is a type of medical implant that is used to treat conditions like pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The mesh is implanted through the vagina and is used to support structures such as the bladder, urethra, uterus, rectum, vagina, or small bowel.
What Problems Are Associated with Transvaginal Mesh?
Unfortunately for many women with transvaginal mesh implants, the mesh can erode and move into the vaginal wall and into other organs causing serious complications. Some of the more common issues experienced by women with issues related to defective transvaginal mesh include the following:
- Pain during sex
- Pelvic pain
- Urinary issues
- Nerve damage
- Recurrence of POP or SUI
- Bowel injury
- Pelvic pressure
Often, women with complications related to a transvaginal mesh implant are required to undergo several rounds of revision surgery to correct the issues they are experiencing.
How Much is My Case Worth?
If you are experiencing complications related to your transvaginal mesh implant, it is only natural to wonder how much compensation you may be entitled to. Every case is different, so it is not possible to assign a value to a “typical” transvaginal mesh case. The amount you receive will depend on a number of factors, including the nature and severity of the complications that you experienced, the amount of work you missed, whether you have any long-term and irreparable medical issues, the level of pain and suffering you experienced.
Do I Need an Attorney?
Transvaginal mesh manufacturers are currently facing thousands of lawsuits from women who have been injured by their products. They are actively attempting to limit liability, and will deny claims whenever possible. For this reason, anyone who believes that he or she has been injured by transvaginal mesh should speak to a lawyer as soon as possible. You lawyer will thoroughly review your case and let you know whether or not you have the right to file a claim. If you do, you attorney will ensure that you receive the compensation to which you are legally entitled.
