Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits: What Every Woman Should Know

Vaginal meshes are not new medical devices. However, in the last three years, the tranvaginal mesh devices or vaginal meshes have been in the news for the medical complications they’ve caused countless women who’ve been diagnosed with urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse. In fact, the FDA has received more than 3,000 vaginal mesh complaints and many of these complaints have turned into vaginal mesh lawsuits.
The vaginal meshes have been used to treat these two female medical conditions for nearly three decades now and since the 1990’s the mesh device has become the treatment of choice for many physicians who are treating women with either pelvic organ prolapse or urinary incontinence.
The problems began when these mesh devices began to fail and patients had to undergo difficult and often painful surgery to have the mesh devices removed. Some female patients have reported that they’ve undergone repeated corrective surgeries to correct the tissue damage caused by the vaginal mesh.
