More than 1 million women have received surgical mesh implants, but the devices haven't performed as mesh manufacturers advertised. To the contrary, transvaginal mesh implants have caused serious complications in tens of thousands of women, lessening their quality of life and causing intense pain on a daily basis. The side effects of surgical mesh can be so severe that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently advised physicians to explore all alternatives before using mesh products in their patients.
It is difficult for victims to be forthright about suffering of such a personal nature, but at least 1,000 women have filed lawsuits against surgical mesh manufacturers, including C.R. Bard Inc., Boston Scientific, Johnson & Johnson (J&J) and American Medical Systems (AMS). New transvaginal mesh implant lawsuits continue to fill up the dockets each week, as more women decide to hold mesh manufacturers accountable for the painful and debilitating harm they've endured.

Vaginal Mesh: Failure, Complications and Recall
The FDA recently issued a warning about the severe complications that mesh implants frequently cause. The federal agency has cautioned that women are five times more likely to suffer painful side effects from transvaginal mesh than patients who do not receive mesh in surgery. Surgeons have commonly used surgical mesh in procedures to treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI), pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and hernias, but most physicians no longer routinely use mesh products.
While new transvaginal surgery patients are less likely to be implanted with surgical mesh, there are hundreds of thousands of women who may be unfairly suffering. Serious transvaginal mesh implant side effects include:
- Mesh erosion through vaginal tissue
- Urinary problems
- Pelvic pain
- Dyspareunia (painful intercourse)
- Neuromuscular problems
- Vaginal scarring
- Vaginal shrinkage
- Perforation injuries occurring during implant procedures
The painful side effects of surgical mesh often require additional surgery to remove implants and repair damaged vaginal tissue. If you've suffered from surgical mesh implants, contact an experienced transvaginal mesh implants lawsuit attorney to discuss your legal options.
