Types of TVM Health Complications
Women who suffered tranvaginal mesh complications after undergoing pelvic organ prolapse repair surgery with a TVM device have most likely experienced undeserved pain and discomfort and may have legal recourse.
Because the manufacturers of transvaginal meshes 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.
Vaginal Mesh Complications: Eroded Mesh and Infections
Transvaginal mesh is marketed by several manufacturers, including:
