Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit
In 2011, the Food and Drug Administration issued a public notice regarding transvaginal mesh to doctors after 2,875 injuries relating to pelvic mesh were reported between 2008 and 2010. Right now, cases are being filed individually, and no nationwide transvaginal mesh class action lawsuit has been filed.
These reported complications include transvaginal mesh devices from nine different companies. Many complications have led to pelvic mesh removal or bladder sling removal.
The transvaginal mesh attorneys at the Strom Law Firm, LLC can offer help and support to those who received a transvaginal mesh sling, or transvaginal tape system, and as a result have sustained injuries including mesh erosion, infections, pain, and even reoccurrence of urinary incontinence. We also accept attorney referrals and look forward to working with you on your case.
Many TVM implant patients experience mesh erosion within one year of surgery and more than half of these patients need further surgery to remove the mesh following complications.

Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit Claims
In 2010, manufacturers estimate more than 75,000 women had TVM surgery to repair pelvic organ prolapse.
According to the FDA, reported complications from the transvaginal placement of the mesh include erosion of the mesh into the vaginal tissue, organ perforation, pain, infection, painful intercourse, and urinary and fecal incontinence. Women often require surgery to remove the mesh.
Transvaginal mesh has been linked to a number of dangerous problems, including:
- reports of infection
- urinary problems
- and bowel, bladder, or blood-vessel perforations.
In some cases, this can require multiple procedures without successfully getting rid of all the mesh. Currently, we are investigating cases involving mesh manufactured by American Medical Systems, Bard, Boston Scientific, Caldera, and Johnson & Johnson.
