Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit

Transvaginal Mesh (TVM) or Pelvic “Sling” Surgery is mainly used for the treatment of Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) and Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI). Recent medical studies confirm that Transvaginal Mesh and Pelvic and Bladder Supports and Slings have resulted in serious complications which include: chronic pain, infections, painful intercourse, migration, “erosion “( a dangerous , painful condition where the skin splits and the mesh protrudes) and the need for corrective surgeries.

In July 2011 the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a safety alert and warned that serious complications associated with the transvaginal mesh method of Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) correction are not rare. The FDA also announced that in addition to posing greater risks mesh patches might be no more effective than traditional repair methods. In January 2012 the FDA ordered makers of transvaginal mesh to study the risks associated with the devices.

Thousands of Transvaginal Mesh (TVM) lawsuits have been filed against TVM manufacturers and the number continues to grow as more and more women stand up for themselves against the manufacturers of the transvaginal mesh that caused them so much suffering.

There are four major TVM manufacurers:

  • C.R. Bard Inc.
  • Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon division
  • American Medical Systems
