Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits

Transvaginal mesh is a surgical mesh implanted through the vagina to repair weakened or damaged tissue, including pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The intent was to use the mesh to support organs in the pelvic region, but transvaginal mesh has been found to cause painful and dangerous side effects.

FDA Warning

In July 2011, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a safety warning associated with transvaginal placement of surgical mesh. The FDA issued their first safety warning in 2008 and then again in 2011 due to thousands of serious complications reported arising from the placement and use of these devices.

Transvaginal Mesh Complications

According to the FDA, the most frequent complications included the following:

  • Erosion through vaginal epithelium
  • Infection
  • Pain
  • Urinary problems
  • Recurrent of prolapse and/or incontinence
  • Bowel, bladder, and blood vessel perforation
  • Pain during sexual intercourse (dyspareunia)
  • Vaginal scarring
