Transvaginal Mesh Side Effects & Complications
Transvaginal mesh (TVM) is a surgical mesh implant used to repair pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The mesh is produced by several manufacturers and has been used in tens of thousands of surgical procedures in the United States. But TVM has been linked to serious health complications that can often require painful and invasive revision surgeries to correct.
At Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough, our transvaginal mesh lawyers can protect your rights if you suffered painful and life-altering side effects or required revision surgeries after receiving TVM. You may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Transvaginal Mesh Health Risks
Complications from TVM used to repair POP or SUI can include:
- mesh contraction or shrinkage,
- mesh erosion through the vagina,
- organ perforation,
- and urinary problems.
Due to the sensitive nature of these injuries, complications from TVM often have traumatic and lifelong ramifications. In many cases, TVM complications also require invasive corrective surgeries or the need for additional medical treatment. You shouldn’t have to pay for injuries from a defective medical device. We’re here to help hold the manufacturers accountable for their actions.
