Mass Litigation Involving Transvaginal Mesh Injuries

For years now, transvaginal mesh has been used to help women suffering from prolapse and certain forms of urinary incontinence. Although it has been used by many doctors over the years, transvaginal mesh risks are substantial.

If you have been injured by transvaginal mesh, talk with a lawyer from our firm. At The Lawrence Firm, PSC, we have been helping injury victims for more than 40 years. We have experience taking on mass tort claims for victims of defective transvaginal mesh and other defective medical devices. From our offices in Covington and Cincinnati, our attorneys represent clients throughout Kentucky and Ohio.

Serious Risks Involved

Transvaginal mesh injuries can include:

  • Erosion of the mesh itself, resulting in extremely complicated and invasive procedures required for removal
  • Erosion of vaginal tissue
  • Pain and fullness in the bladder, sometimes caused by perforation of the bowel or bladder, leading to extreme discomfort and further medical procedures
  • Recurrence of the prolapse and incontinence that led to the transvaginal mesh procedure

Because of these and other serious complications, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently reclassified transvaginal mesh from Class II (which involves moderate risk) to Class III (which involves significant risk). Although doctors are supposed to warn patients of these risks and manufacturers are supposed to be obtaining preapproval of their products from the FDA, these precautions are occasionally ignored.

Our lawyers have the experience and resources to fight for victims of transvaginal mesh injuries. We can help you and others in your situation obtain compensation and bring the guilty parties to justice.
