Transvaginal Mesh FAQs
What is transvaginal mesh?
It is a surgical mesh that is generally used to repair weakened or damaged tissue. In urogynecologic procedures, surgical mesh is permanently implanted to reinforce the weakened vaginal wall to repair pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or to support the urethra to treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI).
Why is there a transvaginal mesh lawsuit?
Some people who have had the transvaginal mesh implanted through surgery now suffer from injuries requiring medical treatment.
What are the risks associated with transvaginal mesh?
Risks associated with transvaginal mesh include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Mesh erosion
- Mesh contraction
- Scar tissue
- Organ perforation
- Blood loss
- Acute and chronic nerve damage
- Pudendal nerve damage
- Pelvic pain and floor damage
- Urinary and fecal incontinence
- Organ prolapse
How do I know if transvaginal mesh was used during my stress urinary incontinence surgery or during my POP surgery?
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends that anyone who has had surgery for pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence contact their healthcare provider to find out if the mesh was used.
How much time do I have to file a lawsuit?
It varies by state. Most states have at least a 2-year statute of limitations. In some, that deadline may be sooner. It is important to contact a defective medical device lawyer who can determine your statute of limitations and file a claim in time. A claim filed after the statute of limitations will be subject to dismissal by the court.
