Complications and Side Effects of Transvaginal Surgical Mesh
Huntington Medical Malpractice Attorney
Designed to help women who are suffering from pelvic organ prolapse, transvaginal surgical mesh has been reported to be causing serious injuries and complications. Though it is implanted through a minimally invasive procedure, the mesh itself has become the focus of scrutiny by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) after thousands of reports of complications.

The reported complications are extensive and include:
- Serious infections
- Pain (including pain during intercourse)
- Urinary tract problems
- Recurrence of the pelvic organ prolapse
- Return of incontinence that was supposedly corrected by the mesh
- Bowel and bladder perforation
- Blood vessel perforation
These complications can lead to subsequent surgeries either addressing the transvaginal surgical mesh itself or surgeries to address the complications. Unfortunately, removal of the mesh also appears to cause complications. Though it can be frustrating to deal with the medical aspect of these cases, our firm can help clients deal with the legal ramifications of any negligence that has led to the injuries and illnesses.
