Transvaginal Mesh Information
Transvaginal Mesh lawsuit attorneys are ready to help you with your lawsuit claim. Did you know that it has been discovered that vaginal mesh bladder slings can cause serious and painful side effects? It has also been discovered that health care providers and patients may not have been fully informed of these dangerous and painful side effects. Additionally, the FDA does not have conclusive proof that Transvaginal Mesh, also referred to as Vaginal Mesh, is any more effective than traditional surgery.
Transvaginal Mesh, or surgical mesh, is a device made from synthetic or biological material that is used to reinforce the vaginal wall. It is used to create a sling to support the urethra and treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI) or to reinforce the vaginal wall to repair pelvic organ prolapse (POP). POP is when the tissues that hold the pelvic organs in place become weak or stretched. When POP occurs, pelvic organs, including the bladder, uterus, rectum, or the top of the vagina prolapse (bulge) into the vagina, sometimes the prolapse or bulge can extend past the opening of the vagina. SUI is urinary leakage during physical activity. The physical activity that causes stress urinary incontinence may be as simple as coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercising.
Transvaginal Mesh is a permanent treatment for POP and SUI, and it may not be possible to fully remove the mesh once it has been surgically implanted through a transvaginal surgery. However, there are alternatives to using Vaginal Mesh to treat POP. Surgery to repair POP can be preformed through the vagina using stitches. Additionally, the FDA recommends that health care providers recognize that in most cases, POP can be successfully treated without Vaginal Mesh. The FDA is still evaluating the effectiveness of Vaginal Mesh to treat SUI.
