Defective Transvaginal Mesh

Transvaginal mesh has been used treat pelvic organ prolapse (a condition where a woman’s pelvic organs slip out of place) and the related condition of stress urinary incontinence. But when the mesh fails, it has left many patients in worse shape than before, with complications far exceeding the problem it was intended to fix.

Troubles with transvaginal mesh surgeries have led the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to issue several warnings about the dangers of the procedure. In a 2011 press release, the FDA reiterated previous warnings and said that reports of transvaginal mesh complications were increasing at a rapid rate.

Patients who have suffered complications from a transvaginal mesh procedure could be entitled to compensation for their injuries. While these claims are essentially product liability matters, they also include a significant element of medical malpractice.

The law firm of Gemma Law Associates, Inc., has years of experience handling Rhode Island medical malpractice and product defect cases, and we are now accepting cases involving transvaginal mesh. We fight to protect the rights of patients and their families. Call us or fill our online contact form for a consultation about your case.

Common Complications From Transvaginal Mesh Implants

Problems with transvaginal mesh implants have had serious effects on the lives of many of the patients who have received them. In some instances, the complications are life changing. Post-operative transvaginal mesh complications include:

  • Internal bleeding;
  • Erosion of the mesh or erosion of vaginal tissue, allowing the mesh to protrude;
  • Perforated bowel or bladder;
  • Urine leakage and incontinence;
  • Pain during sex or at other times;
  • Feeling of bloating, pressure or fullness in the lower abdomen;
  • Constipation or difficult bowel movements;
  • Obstructed bladder outflow;
  • Recurrence of pelvic organ prolapse;
  • Recurrence of stress urinary incontinence;
  • Vaginal drainage; and
  • Infections.

If you have experienced any of these symptoms after a transvaginal mesh operation, seek medical advice as soon as possible.

After spending 8 hours in a hospital overnight to get stitches in my lip because of a drunk driver’s negligent decision to get behind the wheel, the last thing I wanted to do was think about it all. I sent an email to Gemma Law, and Mark Gemma quickly called me back with an empathetic approach to listening to my story and helping me figure out the next steps. When he told me I wouldn’t have to have any contact with the insurance companies, I was HOOKED! When he pointed out how unfortunate it was I might have to miss out on a lip modeling career from a potential scar from the stitches, I was SOLD! And when I finally received my settlement check after letting him do all the leg work while I just focused on recovering, I was and am eternally GRATEFUL! Mark Gemma helped me turn a near death experience into a new start in life and I highly recommend him to anybody needing a personal injury lawyer.
