What is Transvaginal Mesh?

Transvaginal mesh is a medical device designed to support the pelvic organs in women who require surgical repair for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or stress urinary incontinence (SUI).

POP repair involves transvaginal mesh being implanted into the vaginal wall, reinforcing it, in order to hold the surrounding organs in place. When the surgical mesh is used for treatment of SUI, it is placed at the neck of the bladder or the urethra.

Although intended as a longer-lasting treatment for POP and SUI that was also less-invasive, transvaginal mesh has been linked to an increasing number of serious adverse complications.

The most frequently reported adverse events being:

  • Pelvic area pain
  • Transvaginal mesh erosion
  • Vaginal scarring and shrinkage
  • Infections
  • Pain during urination
  • Organ perforation
  • Internal bleeding
  • POP or SUI recurrence

There is a high incident rate of transvaginal mesh revision surgery, especially for women suffering from mesh erosion of a synthetic device. When erosion occurs, the device may break into smaller pieces that travel through the pelvic region, possibly perforating organs and tissue along the way. Surgery to remove these pieces and repair the damage they have done can be time-consuming and complex, requiring multiple procedures to complete the process. Each surgery a patient undergoes puts her at a higher risk of developing more serious complications, by exposing them to infection, further scarring, and possibly permanent damage.

Who is Liable for Transvaginal Mesh Injuries?

Under Kansas’ product liability law, manufacturers of transvaginal mesh have a duty to ensure their products are safe to use. If they have failed to do so, they may be liable in a transvaginal mesh product liability lawsuit.

As a plaintiff, you will be required to prove that the device was unreasonably dangerous and defective due to:

  • Faulty design
  • Poor manufacturing
  • Lack of adequate disclosures and/or instructions

A transvaginal mesh attorney will have the knowledge and ability needed to investigate and gather the necessary evidence to prove your claim.

Some of the major manufacturers of transvaginal mesh that may possibly be defendants are:

  • American Medical Systems (AMS)
  • Boston Scientific
  • C.R. Bard
  • Ethicon (division of Johnson & Johnson)
