Vaginal Mesh Complications Resulting in Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits
The complications with all of the Vaginal Mesh Products are similar. Vaginal Mesh or Transvaginal Mesh Products are used to treat pelvic organ prolapse. Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when an organ in a woman’s pelvic region moves from its normal position or prolapses. The most common reason women under go vaginal mesh surgery is to repair a bladder prolapse that results in urinary incontinence. As a result of the fact that vaginal mesh products are often used to treat bladder prolapse, the products are often referred to as bladder slings. Another common term used to describe Vaginal Mesh Products is “Transvaginal Mesh Products” as they are surgically implanted in such a way as to transverse the cavity beneath a pelvic organ and provide a “sling” to support the organ.
The problem that has arisen with many if not all vaginal mesh implants is the fact that they often become detached and can cause severe lacerations or blockage by migrating to another part of the woman’s pelvic region. These vaginal mesh complications can lead to severe injury and even death. Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits are based on the injuries and deaths suffered by women who have underwent vaginal mesh surgery to have a vaginal mesh implant placed in their body.
