Transvaginal mesh is a medical device designed to provide extra support during certain surgical procedures. Manufacturers can create this mesh out of animal tissue, synthetic materials, or a graft of synthetic and animal materials. Animal tissue mesh can dissolve in the vagina, supported by new tissue growth. However, synthetic mesh does not dissolve, which can lead to painful complications.
Surgeons use transvaginal mesh to treat two conditions:
The Food and Drug Administration released an advisory against the use of synthetic and graft transvaginal mesh. Due to the non-absorbable properties of these materials, women may experience painful and dangerous complications such as organ perforation. Some manufacturers do not follow the FDA requirements for transvaginal mesh, leading to more injuries.
Synthetic transvaginal mesh can lead to well-documented and painful side effects.
In addition, transvaginal mesh can lead to additional complications during follow-up treatments. Revision surgeries are unfortunately quite common, which can add further instances of complications, leading to lifelong issues. Vaginal scarring, nerve damage, muscle damage, shrinkage, and recurring prolapses are also common. Additionally, patients may experience emotional trauma related to the condition.
When you file a lawsuit for transvaginal mesh injuries, you will need to know who manufactured the device. You may want to file legal action against your surgeon or hospital if negligence or malpractice occurred. If you do not know who the manufacturer is or if negligence was present, an attorney can help you find out.
