What is Transvaginal Mesh?
Transvaginal mesh (TVM) is a net-like implant usually made of a plastic material called polypropylene. Manufacturers include Boston Scientific, Coloplast, American Medical Systems, C.R. Bard, Ethicon, Cook Medical and Neomedic. The mesh is used for women who undergo surgical treatment for stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and pelvic organ prolapse (POP). Doctors most commonly insert the mesh through the vagina. Unfortunately, in many cases the pelvic mesh has caused mesh erosion and perforation of the organs in women. Other side effects include vaginal epithelium erosion, serious infections, bowel perforation, bladder perforation, return of pelvic organ prolapse, pain and scarring, and urinary incontinence.

About the Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit
Transvaginal Mesh has severely affected the intimate lives of many women. The FDA has issued several alerts and the manufacturers are now being sued over the harmful device. The companies that produce the pelvic mesh failed to do proper research and testing before using it on hundreds of thousands of Stress Urinary Incontinence Correction and Pelvic Organ Prolapse surgeries. Due to the lack of warning about the risks and of migration and perforation of the uterus along with several other life threatening complications, thousands of women have filed for transvaginal mesh lawsuits seeking compensation for damages, pain and suffering caused by the pelvic mesh device. Currently 7 manufacturers are set to settle cases worth millions to women adversely affected.Call for your FREE Consultation Today!
