Transvaginal mesh implants are used to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP). POP occurs when the muscles in a woman’s lower abdomen weaken, causing a hernia of the pelvic organs, such as the bladder, bowels, and vagina. Approximately one third of women are affected by POP during their lifetimes. Even though the transvaginal mesh implant was designed to help women, it has also been known to cause many complications. If you were injured due to this medical procedure, you may have grounds to file a lawsuit against the medical professionals who implanted it.
Our West Texas personal injury lawyers at the Daspit Law Firm can help you recover damages for your suffering.
Unfortunately, the transvaginal mesh implant has proven to have the highest complication rate of any other treatment for POP. The most common complications are erosion and organ perforation. The mesh can cause the vaginal wall to erode, which often causes intense pain and infection. This erosion can even lead to organ perforation. If the mesh falls out of place, it can puncture other nearby organs such as the bladder or bowels. Such a complication must result in surgery and may lead to even worse health conditions than before.
Other side effects may include nerve damage, vaginal shrinkage, pain during sexual intercourse, vaginal scar tissue, bleeding, and more. A device that was meant to solve a medical condition should not create such severe problems. Medical professionals should be held accountable for these issues so that the injured can recover financial damages for their suffering and increased medical expenses.
