When the use of transvaginal mesh goes wrong

Transvaginal mesh, also known as a bladder sling, can be used for many reasons, such as to keep the bladder and uterus in place after childbirth or as the result of obesity or old age.

While the use of transvaginal mesh is suggested by many doctors, here's something you need to know: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a warning to health care professionals (and patients) that the use of transvaginal mesh could cause more harm than good, especially when you take into consideration the other options that are available.

The FDA has received reports of many complications, including but not limited to erosion of the mesh, pain, infection, organ perforation and fecal and urinary incontinence. In many cases, defective transvaginal mesh calls for another medical procedure to remove the defective device.

As a woman who is looking for a solution to a serious problem, you may feel that transvaginal mesh is your only answer. This isn't true.

If you traveled down this path and are regretting it, it may be time to learn more about your legal options. At our law firm, we want women to know that they may be able to hold the manufacturer liable as a means of receiving compensation.

Transvaginal mesh products have been manufactured by some of the biggest names in the health care industry, including but not limited to Johnson & Johnson, Boston Scientific and Bard.

If your transvaginal mesh is causing you health problems, you should consult with an experienced health care professional who can examine your body and provide advice on which steps to take next. From there, you can turn your attention to other matters, such as your legal rights.
