Transvaginal mesh is a medical device that is surgically implanted into women suffering from pelvic floor disorders, most commonly pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The device is meant to act as support for weakened or damaged muscles and organs in the pelvic area, for the bladder, or the urethra. Sadly, there have been thousands of adverse side effects reported from its use, especially for POP repair.
The most devastating side effects of transvaginal mesh implants are:
The mesh erodes into the vaginal wall where it was implanted and begins to break down into pieces that travel away from the original site. POP or SUI can continue to be an issue and patients may experience severe pain, excessive bleeding, a loss of sensation, and pain during intercourse.
The smaller segments of the mesh device that have broken away from the vaginal wall may travel throughout the body, putting pelvic and abdominal organs in danger of being perforated due to their sharp edges. Perforations can result in extreme pain, excessive bleeding, and infection. Organs such as the liver, colon, or kidneys being punctured can be life-threatening.
Due to the severity of side effects, there is a high incident rate of transvaginal mesh revision surgery. More than one surgical revision may be needed for mesh erosion, as tissue begins to grow in and around the device and its segments, making it more difficult to retrieve all of the pieces and repair the damage. Each revision surgery comes with the risk of more complications, is typically more painful, and can lead to permanent damage.
Victims of transvaginal mesh injuries have the legal option to pursue compensation from the device’s manufacturer under Idaho’s product liability law. However, the state limits the amount of time you have to file to two years from either the date of the injury, when the injury was discovered or should have been known.
Although it can be done, taking on a large company in a medical product liability suit can be daunting and extremely complex. Having an attorney on your side with extensive transvaginal mesh injury case knowledge can be critical to your success. Manufacturers may attempt to place blame on you in an effort to avoid paying damages by claiming you were aware of the risks involved. An attorney will ensure that all of the proper evidence is gathered in order to prove fault and maximize your chances of being awarded compensation.
