Undergoing surgery to place a transvaginal mesh may expose women to heightened risk of:
- Serious infections
- Physical pain and suffering
- The erosion of vaginal organs
- Uncontrolled bleeding issues
- Pain when having sex
- Perforation of surrounding organs
- Issues with urination
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently stated that the use of surgical mesh for prolapses may carry higher risks over other surgeries and may not provide additional benefits. Some of those treated with surgical mesh have needed additional surgeries and/or hospitalization in order to remedy complications or remove the mesh. In 2010 alone, there were approximately 100,000 pelvic organ prolapsed repairs with surgical mesh. In addition, because transvaginal meshes are permanent, they may not be able to be removed.
If you or someone you know has suffered serious injury or financial damage because of the use of transvaginal placement of surgical mesh, it is important that you speak to an Albany personal injury attorney to protect your rights.
