Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit

What is Transvaginal Mesh & Why are there so many Transvaginal mesh Lawsuits?

The term transvaginal mesh came from two different terms. The first word “trans-vaginal” which means to enter into the opening part of the vagina. This is not a form of surgery as what another method of this is, where the surgical doctors will insert the mesh through abdomen via surgery. This is less invasive and very easy in comparison. The other term of course is “mesh” which is a net like material that is used to support or hold a particular organ or body part inside the pelvic region. This material is used to support organs like gall bladder, rectum and uterus.

The POP or pelvic organ prolapse is the culprit of many transvaginal mesh procedures. This is the condition in which the muscles on the pelvic floor have weakened. As a result, the muscles cannot hold the bladder, uterus and rectum which cause these organs to drop down or slip forward towards the vaginal region causing tremendous abdominal pains on women. This condition happens after the woman gives birth.

During birth the pelvic muscles are affected because they are involved during the pregnant woman’s labor. This might occur due to prolonged labor hours, or wrong type of procedure during labor. On some point this condition can occur normally due and may not have any clear causes. Therefore, the solution when this condition occurs is using transvaginal mesh. When it goes well, this is great, but it often results in even more pain and discomfort as a result of erosion, and this is why there are so many transvaginal mesh lawsuits.
