Many women who have undergone a procedure involving transvaginal mesh, especially when repairing pelvic organ prolapse (POP), have suffered devastating side effects. Complications most often associated with the devices are:
Transvaginal mesh surgery is a treatment typically used to repair disorders with the pelvic floor, most commonly SUI and POP. The mesh is a medical device manufactured from animal tissue or synthetic materials, that is then surgically implanted through the vagina (transvaginal) and placed either at the neck of the bladder or urethra (SUI) or in the vaginal wall (POP). The mesh product is designed to support the weakened muscles or organs that are causing incontinence (SUI) or pelvic organs to drop (POP).
In the past 11 years, the U.S. Federal Drug and Food Administration (FDA) has issued two public health notifications regarding the dangers associated with transvaginal mesh. Lawsuits have and are being filed against the manufacturers, alleging that they have failed to warn patients and doctors about the device’s high risk of serious complications. Women who have suffered severe side effects following a transvaginal mesh surgery may have the right to be awarded compensation for damages such as medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
Since there have been thousands of reported complications and more than one hundred thousand lawsuits filed, many transvaginal mesh lawsuits have been consolidated into multidistrict litigation (MDL) matters in the federal courts. Under MDL law, the lawsuits are consolidated and transferred to one federal court, but only for pretrial proceedings. This is so that the development of evidence and answers to factual questions that are common to numerous lawsuits can be examined by one court then shared across all of the cases involved. Once pretrial proceedings have concluded and if a settlement has not been reached, the individual cases will be transferred back to and heard at the original court.
Filing a transvaginal lawsuit can be complex, especially when it comes to MDL case law. Hiring the right attorney with the experience needed to represent you is critical.
