Potential Serious Complications of Transvaginal Mesh

Transvaginal mesh surgery to correct pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or stress urinary incontinence (SUI) has been linked to many serious complications. Side effects can emerge months after surgery, leaving some women in debilitating pain. The possible side effects include:

    • Mesh erosion: commonly reported and involves the device breaking down and eroding the vaginal wall while also possibly breaking into smaller pieces.
    • Perforated organs: erosion can lead to the edges of the mesh being sharp, which may cause perforations in organs or surrounding tissue.
    • Dyspareunia: pain during or after sexual intercourse.
    • Pelvic pain
    • Incontinence
    • Infection
    • Vaginal shortening or scarring
    • Nerve damage
    • Recurrent POP
    • Emotional trauma

Doctors often treat serious complications by performing transvaginal mesh revision surgery to repair damage, adjust the mesh, or completely remove it. Removing the device can require more than one surgery if tissue growth has occurred in and around the mesh. Each surgery puts the patient at risk of suffering even more complications, such as infection, permanent damage, and infection.

Product Liability Laws in Wyoming

Product manufacturers have a duty to protect consumers by performing testing to find out risks, adding safety features and warnings where necessary, and even recalling products shown to pose significant danger. Large corporations, motivated by profit, can sometimes cut corners and disregard these obligations. In which case, a victim injured by a defective product may pursue a product liability claim. Under the state of Wyoming’s product liability laws, the plaintiff (victim) has four years from the date of the injury to file a claim.

Potential defendants in a defective mesh claim include:

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

Getting help with your defective product liability claim can be crucial to your case and your recovery amount. An attorney experienced with defective transvaginal mesh can help you go against a large manufacturer and seek damages for:

  • Medical bills (present and future)
  • Lost income (present and future)
