Transvaginal mesh devices have been placed in tens of thousands of women who underwent surgical repair for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI).
Although evidence of the ineffectiveness and risks of transvaginal mesh continue to mount, no recalls have been issued for specific models. The sad truth is that you likely won’t know whether you have a faulty transvaginal mesh product unless the defective device results in complications.
The Mobile, Alabama, defective product attorneys at Long & Long are currently investigating claims from women who received transvaginal mesh, also known as a bladder sling, in the surgical treatment of POP or SUI and later experienced side-effects including:
- Internal bleeding
- Mesh erosion
- Organ damage
- Pain during intercourse
- Pain during urination
- Recurrence of POP or SUI
- Vaginal pain
- Vaginal scarring
If you develop any of these symptoms after POP or SUI surgery in which transvaginal mesh was used, it’s important to contact your physician and an experienced product liability attorney as soon as possible.
