Trans-vaginal mesh is a medical device that primarily consists of a plastic that is called polypropylene. The term trans-vaginal itself, is used to refer to the type of surgical technique that is necessary for the implantation of this device through the vagina. This surgical mesh was primarily designed to alleviate the problems associated with (SUI) or stress urinary incontinence and (POP) or pelvic organ prolapse.
The procedure for implanting a trans-vaginal mesh may vary from doctor to doctor. Some may choose to do it abdominally, while some may choose to insert it via the vagina.
While the product was created with the sole intention of helping women who continuously suffer from POP or SUI, unfortunately, not all of them are safe. This was primarily due to the type of techniques that the manufacturer recommended, pertaining to the implantation of these devices, which lead to a variety of serious complications such as organ perforation, erosion of the vaginal tissue and minor/severe infections.
Personal injury law refers to a legal term that is used to describe the circumstances surrounding financial reimbursement for an individual’s injury that was caused as a result of someone’s negligence. Under the personal injury law, if someone gets hurt physically, emotionally or psychologically as a result of someone’s negligence, then they can be held liable and as such, face a lawsuit.
Due to the fact that the complications associated with the implantation of trans-vaginal meshes were primarily due to the implantation techniques that the doctors were recommending on behalf of the manufacturers, they can be held accountable in the court of law. As such, it comes as no surprise that over 40,000 lawsuit claims have been made on behalf of an abundance of victims that encountered serious complications related to this device.
