Transvaginal Mesh: O’Connor Acciani & Levy Is Still Investigating Claims Of Serious Injury

In the past year, our firm has received numerous calls from women who are suffering from painful complications linked to transvaginal mesh. Vaginal mesh implants are used to combat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or stress urinary incontinence. Basically, in some women, the muscles in the pelvis weaken over time, causing pelvic organs to sag and push into each other. If you or someone you love has suffered an injury due to transvaginal mesh contact one of our leading personal injury lawyers in Cincinnati today for a free consultation. Many women who develop POP don't experience symptoms. Those who do experience symptoms most commonly feel anything from pressure and discomfort, to pain and difficulty with bowel movements. Transvaginal mesh was invented to relieve POP and stress urinary incontinence, by strengthening the muscles that hold pelvic organs in place. The surgical procedure is a minimally-invasive method of implanting surgical mesh to treat POP and stress urinary incontinence. The less-invasive nature of transvaginal mesh surgery is designed to allow women a faster recovery time and cause less post-operative pain and scarring. However, in some women, severe complications have been linked to the device. Since 2005, thousands of women have reported problems after their transvaginal mesh implant surgery. These women experienced adverse effects such as pelvic pain, pain during intercourse, infections, bleeding, injury to nearby organs, and the erosion of the mesh through the vaginal wall. Women who experience these painful complications may require additional surgery to correct the problem or remove the mesh. In January of this year the FDA issued an order to the makers of transvaginal mesh that requires them to study the effects of their products on women. If you have received transvaginal mesh implant surgery, and you are experiencing any of the problems listed above, then you should see a doctor if you have not already done so. It is important to seek medical attention before permanent damage is done. Once you've seen a doctor, and he or she has diagnosed the problem, contact us so we can help you seek compensation. You could receive compensation for medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering.
