Transvaginal Mesh Injuries

Get an Atlanta Product Liability on Your Side

Women who have experienced certain medical conditions, stress as urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or need treatment for stress urinary incontinence (SUI), may have been recommended a transvaginal mesh, also known as TVM.

However, we at Schneider Hammers have noticed an upsurge in the number of complications resulting from the use of this product, rather than success stories. Women are seeing complications, including the possible development of cancer from using the device.

How is TVM linked to cancer?

TVM is a mesh screen that is implanted, first by entering in through the vagina, to support weakened pelvic muscles and provide relief for those suffering from POP or SUI. These are medical conditions that are quite common among women who have already had children or have undergone a hysterectomy when the muscles have weakened considerably. However, the mesh has been linked to some severe complications.

Some of these effects include:

  • Infection
  • Fatigue
  • Vaginal shrinkage
  • Vaginal scarring
  • Abdominal swelling
  • General pain the pelvic region
  • Perforation of the organs
  • Vaginal tissue erosion
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Vaginal discharge

In 2008, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration began issuing warnings about the increased risk of developing cancer for those who undergo treatments using a TVM. As of now, here have been approximately 70, 000 lawsuits that have been filed or are currently pending against several of the device manufacturers, such as Boston Scientific and Johnson & Johnson. There are countless others occurring in individual states. Our Atlanta product liability attorneys are in the process of providing legal counsel for many of these cases.
