Vaginal mesh (or transvaginal mesh, pelvic mesh, tape, or a pelvic sling) is a type of implantable medical device that is placed in the center of a woman’s pelvis, similar to a hammock, as a way to support weak pelvic muscles. It is very common for older women who have had multiple pregnancies to have weak pelvic muscles, which can cause a type of incontinence called Stress Urinary Incontinence or another disorder called Pelvic Organ Prolapse, in which abdominal organs protrude in the vagina.
Hundreds of thousands of women have been implanted with vaginal mesh. Unfortunately, some devices are associated with a high risk of side effects — especially devices implanted through incisions in the vagina. The FDA has warned that serious complications are not rare, and the most common complication is vaginal mesh erosion. Many women who have complications must undergo surgery, but even multiple surgeries may not be able to cure permanent complications.
Hundreds of women have contacted a vaginal mesh lawyer and filed a vaginal mesh lawsuit against the manufacturers of these devices. If you were injured by vaginal mesh, you are not alone. Recently, a woman was awarded $5.5 million in the first-ever vaginal mesh lawsuit. If you decide to file a lawsuit, you could be entitled to compensation for your pain, suffering, medical expenses, lost income, disability, decreased quality of life, loss of consortium with your husband, and more.
