If you are considering filing a transvaginal mesh lawsuit, you are not alone. Many women have been treated to repair POP (Pelvic Organ Prolapse) or to treat urinary incontinence through urogynologic procedures using surgical mesh and unfortunately it has caused serious problems to many.  The FDA warns that those being treated with transvaginal surgical mesh face serious and harmful risks. The FDA as well as many others believe there are safer methods to treat those problems. Thousands of reports of complications with transvaginal mesh surgeries have been reported to the FDA over a 3 year period up to the end of 2010. This includes over 1,500 reports of adverse effects when surgery using mesh was performed to treat pelvic organ prolapse. Nearly 2,400 reported adverse effects of transvaginal mesh used to repair stress urinary incontinence.  Even death has been reported on seven occasions so this is a serious problem and the makers of the transvaginal mesh need to be held accountable.
