Transvaginal surgical mesh (TVM) implants were once believed to be an innovation with great potential for many women suffering from conditions such as stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and pelvic organ prolapse (POP). However, since being introduced onto the market, the devices have been considered to be the source of additional health concerns due to transvaginal mesh implant complications for a large number of those provided this type of treatment.
One of the most common questions asked by women who have experienced serious side effects such as implant erosion, urinary incontinence, pelvic bleeding, and painful sexual intercourse linked to an implanted mesh device is, Should a transvaginal surgical mesh lawsuit be filed? Many patients feel that consenting to having the surgery as a treatment option may overshadow their right to take legal action for compensation against those responsible if problems arise. However, this is not the case and the pursuit of just legal compensation may be warranted in a number of instances.
