Florida-Based Attorneys Representing Victims of Defective Transvaginal Mesh Products Nationwide
Transvaginal mesh is a synthetic or biologic material permanently implanted in women to repair pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or to support the urethra to treat urinary incontinence. Women might undergo the surgical procedure following birth to repair the weakened vaginal wall.
However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has found that transvaginal mesh, regardless of manufacturer, can expose patients to health risks such as the erosion of the product into surrounding areas of the pelvis and pelvic organs. Part of the product can become implanted as intended to strengthen the vaginal wall while some of it is not absorbed into the tissue. If complications arise as a result, removal of the implant can be complicated and costly. Or, other health issues could develop. It is important to seek appropriate medical care immediately if you notice persistent abdominal pain, unexplained fever, tenderness in the pelvis or other unusual symptoms.

What Is Pelvic Organ Prolapse?
Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) occurs when the muscles supporting a woman’s pelvic area become very weak and the pelvic organs move out of place. It most commonly occurs after menopause, after childbirth or after a hysterectomy. Oftentimes, surgery is performed to correct the issue. This procedure involves the permanent insertion of transvaginal mesh (a synthetic or biologic material).
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has found that many brands of the transvaginal mesh are defective and cause serious complications such as erosion, blood vessel perforation and more. If you are experiencing pain or unusual symptoms, it is important you seek medical treatment promptly.
