Pelvic mesh surgery can cause life-threatening injuries.
If you or someone love has one has undergone a pelvic procedure involving the implantation of transvaginal mesh, you may develop complications or painful symptoms that are serious, and could even result in death. Frequently referred to as a bladder sling or pelvic mesh, transvaginal mesh implants are intended to support a woman’s internal organs. However, a number of women—some 70,000 lawsuits have already been filed—have suffered or are suffering from pain, infection, erosion of the mesh, or other painful problems. Some of the symptoms you may suffer include:
- Organ Perforation
- Painful Sexual Intercourse
- Painful Urination
- Vaginal Mesh Erosion
- Vaginal Scarring
How dangerous are transvaginal mesh implants?
Extremely. So much so that the FDA raised their concern level in 2011 due to the increasing number of problem cases across the nation. The report suggested that claims were so prevalent that doctors should seek alternative methods to treat pelvic organ prolapse—and not use bladder slings or pelvic mesh. The most common problems with these devices are that they can 1) erode or deteriorate, or 2) become brittle and break apart, causing sharp slivers of synthetic material to puncture the bladder or rectum. The result is potential life-threatening infections, organ damage, and painful inflammation.
