Potential TVM Complications
Types of Potential TVM Complications
Women who suffered tranvaginal mesh complications after undergoing pelvic organ prolapse repair surgery with a transvaginal mesh have most likely experienced undeserved pain and discomfort, and may have legal recourse.
Because the manufacturers of transvaginal meshes for bladder prolapse did not warn patients and doctors about the heightened risks associated with TVM, women suffering mesh complications may be able to file a claim seeking compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages.
Transvaginal mesh is marketed by several manufacturers, including:
American Medical Systems
Johnson & Johnson
C.R. Bard, Inc.
The following are among the vaginal mesh complications reported by women who underwent pelvic organ prolapse repair surgery with a transvaginal mesh:
Recurrence of prolapse or incontinence
Bowel, bladder, and blood vessel perforation
Pain during sex
According to the FDA, most patients reported that they needed medical or surgical intervention, and some required hospitalization.
