Transvaginal mesh is generally used to repair weakened or damaged tissue through urogynecologic procedures and is permanently implanted to reinforce the weakened vagina wall to repair pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or to support the urethra to treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI).

Some women who have had the transvaginal mesh implanted through surgery unfortunately had to face injuries requiring medical treatment.

Risks associated with transvaginal mesh include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Mesh erosion
  • Mesh contraction
  • Scar tissue
  • Organ perforation
  • Dyspareunia
  • Infection
  • Fistula
  • Inflammation
  • Blood loss
  • Acute and chronic nerve damage
  • Organ prolapse
  • Pudendal nerve damage
  • Pelvic pain and floor damage
  • Urinary and fecal incontinence

Injuries linked with TVM implant

transvaginal mesh lawsuitSince the 1990’s, transvaginal mesh products have been used for both pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The transvaginal mesh lawsuit speaks about the complications associated with the mesh products. Beginning with Boston Scientific’s 1999 recall of its transvaginal mesh product, ProtoGen, many patients began to experience shocking complications from these defective medical products. However, medical device manufacturers continued to produce and sell the transvaginal mesh, and thousands of patients were treated with these products. Over the last 15 years, women across the country have sustained serious injuries because of these defective medical devices.

By 2008, the FDA had issued a warning about transvaginal mesh, which emphasized the fact that “serious complications associated with surgical mesh for transvaginal repair of POP are not rare.” Between 2008-2010, the FDA reported about the complications arising from injuries.

The main companies named in the lawsuit by the transvaginal mesh lawyers include Bard, Boston, Ethicon, Johnson and Johnson and more.

The vaginal mesh lawsuits are actually a group of individually filed cases through mass tort lawsuit.

That is, each person who has been injured has their own individual case and attorney representing them, but every victim also typically shares similar grievances and allegations against the same companies or for the same or similar products or events.
