See our "Warnings and Recalls" page for more details. Since 2008, the FDA has received 2,874 adverse event reports of complications following surgery. Of these reports, 1,503 adverse event reports were associated with transvaginal implants used in Pelvic Organ Prolapse repair, and 1371 of the reports were associated with stress urinary incontinence repair. Transvaginal mesh was designed to help women who were suffering from Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Stress Urinary Incontinence, but instead it has shown to cause serious complications which have resulted in vaginal mesh lawsuits. Studies have shown that due to the nature of this surgery, surgeons placing Transvaginal mesh devices need more specialized training on using and implanting the device.  Since there are serious complications and infections that can arise during the surgery and implantation of the device, transvaginal mesh can do more harm than good for many women. Due to the complications of vaginal mesh surgery the transvaginal mesh lawsuit is proceeding forward to assist those women who have been injured from the use of vaginal mesh. If you believe you may be experiencing complications from vaginal mesh, transvaginal mesh, or mesh surgery(s) you may be eligible to be included in the vaginal mesh lawsuit.
