Transvaginal Mesh Lawyer
Pelvic organ prolapse, or POP, is the downward migration of the uterus, bladder, or other pelvic organ(s) to space that is normally reserved for the vagina when pregnancy, surgery, etc. compromises the strength of the muscles and ligaments responsible for holding it in place. When this occurs, the pelvic organs affected may press against the vagina and cause, among other things, urinary leakage, painful intercourse, and/or projection of tissue or organs from the vaginal opening. Since the Nineties, surgical mesh has been one way to lend support to collapsed organs and to provide relief from the problems involved with POP; but be warned—this treatment has since fallen out of favor for its own considerable complications.

Problems with Transvaginal Mesh
Transvaginal mesh is made of a synthetic material called polypropylene. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the substance, one source says to “Imagine a nylon strap on a laptop bag.” If this doesn’t sound like something you’d want inside the human body, that might be because its place there is dubious at best. What sounded like a quick fix for pelvic organ prolapse and its associated symptoms is, in fact, a serious potential risk for internal injuries that are arguably worse than POP, itself. Some symptoms of transvaginal mesh gone wrong are the puncturing of internal organs, deterioration of tissue integrity (and the structural integrity of the vaginal mesh), infection, and a continuation of symptoms that transvaginal mesh is supposed to alleviate, such as incontinence, painful sex, and even a recurrence of the prolapse. In 2011, the Food and Drug Administration issued a public health notification that they had received 1,000 reports of complications with transvaginal mesh in 3 years and that the prevalence of such problems could no longer be considered negligible. Surgical mesh has been linked to serious side effects requiring follow-up surgery, blood transfusions, etc. and even to irreversible damage in some cases. There are many different types of surgical mesh manufactured by different companies. Transvaginal Mesh is made by at least nine different manufacturers. There is an enormous risk involved in mesh implantation. If you were given a Transvaginal Mesh Patch you can receive a settlement with the help of our Utah Transvaginal Mesh attorneys.
