Houston Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit Lawyer
What is Transvaginal Mesh?
Transvaginal mesh is a surgical device that is used to support and strengthen the weakened or damaged tissue by means of an implant. In such situations as Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) and Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) transvaginal mesh is offered as an option, but can have varied side effects. (POP) is a condition in which the tissues or muscle around the pelvic area becomes weak and it is difficult for the pelvis to hold its place. (SUI) is where urinary fluid leaks during physical activities; such as laughing, coughing, sneezing, and exercise.
Though this surgery was designed to improve situations as these, there are many noted side effects to women such as:
- Mesh rrosion
- Mesh exposure
- Mesh contraction
- Pain during sexual intercourse and urination
These are just few of the implications that can take place due to transvaginal mesh. The FDA has issued public health notifications reporting the seriousness of the complications associated with transvaginal mesh.
