Transvaginal mesh associated with serious complications

Posted in Vaginal Mesh

The use of transvaginal mesh (TVM) in repair of genital prolapse has become more popular in recent years, but with this has come a controversy over the safety of procedures involving TVM.  As many studies have shown that the use of transvaginal mesh can lead to serious complications for the patient, researches and designers have been trying to find new transvaginal mesh systems that they hope will be deemed safer.

A recent study from B. Fatton, et. al. evaluated the safety of a newer TVM product called Prolift, and found that a host of negative outcomes were possible, though not highly probable.  These TVM complications include bladder injury occurring during surgery, haematomas, mesh exposure, granuloma as well as postoperative failure.

The study proves that while efforts are starting to be made to find concrete answers about the safety of transvaginal mesh systems for the repair of vaginal prolapse, the research done so far has found a multitude of possible complications that could occur.  Due to the frequency of these complications and due to the fact that many manufacturers of transvaginal mesh products have failed to adequately warn users about risks associated with TVM, a number of transvaginal mesh lawsuits are currently being filed.

If you have suffered from any of the above-listed complications after or during a vaginal prolapse repair operation involving transvaginal mesh, you may be victim to an understudied or misused transvaginal mesh system.  Please contact our transvaginal mesh lawyers to receive a free consultation, and we will help you determine if you are eligible to file a transvaginal mesh lawsuit.
