Mesh Implant Complications
If you or a woman you love has endured mesh implant complications, contact the surgical mesh personal injury authorities at Anapol Schwartz today. Time is short.
Transvaginal mesh implant complications are often more crippling than the conditions they were intended to treat. Mesh can break down and send shards of plastic into surrounding organs or tissue. Dangerous infections can develop. Women are hurting and suffering serious injuries from surgical mesh, and they want their lives back.
Surgical Mesh Complications
- Mesh erosion into other organs – Erosion, also called mesh exposure and mesh extrusion, is the most common surgical mesh injury, according to the Food and Drug Administration. This happens when the mesh breaks and cuts surrounding tissue and organs. Women may experience severe pain, infection and recurrent urinary incontinence or organ prolapse.
- Mesh loosening
- Painful intercourse
- Nerve damage
- Pelvic, leg and back pain
- Infection – When broken mesh pieces slice other parts of the body, women can develop infections that can be deadly if left untreated.
- Fistula – Inflammation or infection can lead to an abnormal tunnel between the rectum and vaginal area called a rectovaginal fistula. A fistula is an extremely serious and painful problem that requires surgery, antibiotics and extended recovery time.
Complications associated with transvaginal mesh failure often necessitate many revision surgeries, because surgeons can only remove the shards of mesh that are sticking out. As they wait for more erosion and more pain, women may deal with recurring problems for the rest of their lives.
Because surgical mesh products did not undergo human testing before hitting the market, patients are suffering debilitating problems. If you are a victim of transvaginal mesh, contact the mesh lawyers at Anapol Schwartz today. Your state limits the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit, and the time frame is short for filing surgical mesh lawsuits. Standing up against a manufacturer that continues to hurt people will not only get you the compensation you deserve, but it may prevent others from suffering in the future. Help others and help yourself.
