Transvaginal mesh is a kind of surgery that is meant to help women ease their suffering from pelvic organ prolapsed and stress urinary incontinence. Unfortunately the surgery can bring about side effects which can lead for one to file a vaginal mesh lawsuit. The nature of this surgery would require training because the surgeon will have to implant a device into a woman’s body.
Since there are complications that could arise from the procedure, this can do harm than good for a lot of people. Patients tend to suffer from side effects and it is important to call your doctor right away. In this situation, timing can play a big factor in filing for legal action.
Here are some common side effects resulting from transvaginal mesh.
• Pain when urinating
• Uncomfortable sexual intercourse
• Tightening of the vaginal area
The transvaginal mesh surgery was introduced to correct pelvic organs defects in women. After the surgery was introduced, many reports on complications were received by the US FDA. Some complications that have been reported after the surgery are urinary problems and recurrence of SUI and POP.
Some complications such as perforation of blood vessels have been reported during performance of the surgery. As a result of these pelvic mesh post-surgical complications, the FDA began issuing alerts on the potential health risks the surgery posed.
Currently, the FDA is issuing alerts not only to the public but also to physicians. This has led to many victims of the transvaginal mesh surgery seeking the services of pelvic mesh lawyers to deal with the transvaginal mesh manufacturers. At the moment, all transvaginal mesh lawsuits have been put together in West Virginia.
A transvaginal mesh is a device that was meant to correct defects in fallen internal
pelvic organs. Unfortunately, this vaginal mesh has resulted in a series of injuries and complications in women such as POP. This has led to the rise of lawsuits surrounding transvaginal mesh lawsuits. As of March 2013, only two mesh trials have been completed. Both lawsuits have resulted in the compensation of the victims.
Many other lawsuits are set to be heard in the coming months. Women who have filed lawsuits intend to receive financial compensation. They are justified in this since the injuries and complications caused by the transvaginal mesh usually results in them having to make numerous visits to the doctor. The medical bills are huge not forgetting the prescribed medicines they have to purchase and the periods of time they have to take off their work.
