Negative Side-Effects of Transvaginal Mesh

Posted in Vaginal Mesh

Transvaginal mesh repair is commonly used for the repair of anterior vaginal wall prolapse.  Some reports have observed that overactive bladder symptoms are occasionally improved due to the use of transvaginal mesh in the repair of vaginal wall prolapse.  A study conducted by Cheng-Yu Long, et. al. focused on the possible positive side effects caused by the use of transvaginal mesh in vaginal prolapse repair operations, specifically investigating the possible improvement of overactive bladder symptoms.

The study indicated that nearly three-quarters of participants experienced improvement of overactive bladder symptoms, a strong positive unpredicted side effect of the use of transvaginal mesh.  The research also indicated however, that nearly the entire remaining quarter of patients experienced worsened symptoms of an overactive bladder following surgical transvaginal mesh insertion.  This means that while there lays a chance of unpredicted improvement of overactive bladder symptoms due to the use of transvaginal mesh, there also is the existing possibility of worsened overactive bladder symptoms.

Overactive bladder symptoms can lead to embarrassing, painful, and often times, difficult experiences in which victims must routinely deal with the stresses of such an ailment.  Our transvaginal mesh lawyers are prepared to offer assistance in obtaining justice for the suffering caused by the side effects of transvaginal mesh delivery in anterior vaginal wall prolapse surgery.  Contact us today to receive your free consultation and allow us to help you or a loved one file a transvaginal mesh lawsuit.
