Defective Medical Devices – Vaginal Mesh Failure
South Carolina Personal Injury Attorneys
You may have heard about the recent study that revealed troubling results with transvaginal mesh procedures. Many women are suffering from pain after a surgery inserting a transvaginal mesh device / TVT / TVM system and sling.
According to the New England Journal of Medicine, a transvaginal mesh support is more effective for repairing a common type of pelvic organ prolapse (which occurs when pelvic organs fall out of place) in women than simply stitching the connective tissue in the vaginal wall muscle back together.
However, the newer surgical procedure comes with a higher rate of severe complications, including bladder perforation and pelvic hemorrhage, and adverse events after the surgery, such as urinary incontinence and pain during sex.
Recently, the Food and Drug Administration was made aware the serious and potentially severe complications linked to transvaginal mesh.
