What is a Transvaginal / Pelvic Mesh?
Transvaginal Mesh is a small, sturdy fabric-like implant used to repair such issues such as pelvic floor disorders or pelvic organ prolapse (or POP). The FDA describes POP as a condition in which internal organs such as the bladder or uterus slip from their usual position and descend into the vagina. This can happen at any age but is most frequently caused by childbirth or genetics. Likewise, pelvic floor disorders have to do with the muscles around the vagina that hold everything in place. Sometimes, these muscles may become stretched or weakened too much to do their job – and that is when doctors may have implanted a mesh or a “bladder sling” to help strengthen them again.
The FDA recalled all instances of surgical mesh from procedures using the product for vaginal repair on April 16, 2019. This is not the first time that surgical mesh came under fire for this procedure. In January of 2016, surgical mesh for transvaginal mesh was reclassified from a mid-risk (class II) operation to a high-risk (class III) operation. However, the product was not recalled entirely at that time.
The FDA has also stated that if you are satisfied with your surgery and are not having issues with the mesh, continue with your follow-ups as normal. However, contact your doctor immediately if you experience any of the following:
- persistent vaginal bleeding or discharge
- pelvic or groin pain
- urinary incontinence after implantation
- pain with sex
- recurring prolapse after implantation
These symptoms could be issues caused by your mesh implant. Don’t wait until the symptoms get worse. Call your doctor and address them right away.
Many Manufacturers and Brands Affected
Manufacturers include Johnson & Johnson, C.R. Bard, American Medical Systems, and Boston Scientific. These four companies and their children companies have produced dozens of mesh products that have been recalled.
There are or have been more than 100,000 lawsuits by women who were affected by their defective transvaginal or pelvic meshes against these companies. If you’ve been hurt by their bad products – don’t wait! Let Ken Nunn help get you the compensation you deserve.
