Stuart Vaginal Mesh Injury Attorneys
Millions Won for Clients throughout Martin County
Have you experienced adverse side effects from vaginal mesh? You may be entitled to financial compensation. Surgical mesh is used to treat both pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI), and it has been declared potentially dangerous by the FDA. This material is implanted to strengthen the weakened vaginal wall or support the urethra or bladder neck, effectively repairing SUI or POP.
Last year, however, the FDA informed medical professionals that these treatments were no more effective than traditional treatments, and that they also potentially cause erosion that can lead to pain, infection, bleeding, dyspareunia, organ perforation, and urinary complications. If you were a victim of any of these complications, call a Stuart vaginal mesh injury attorney to explore options for compensation.

Adverse Side Effects of Vaginal Mesh
Studies show that vaginal mesh is neither safer nor more effective for treating POP and SUI than traditional medical procedures and treatments.
Although the FDA will continue to evaluate case studies and incoming date, medical testing thus far seems to indicate several things:
- There are risks involved in mesh implant surgery that are not present in traditional repair procedures.
- Vaginal mesh may not be useful for repairing certain types of POP. For example, there is no evidence indicating that surgically implanted mesh is useful for apical repair or posterior wall repair.
- Erosion, the most common vaginal mesh implant complication, can be extremely painful and require multiple surgeries to repair.
- Mesh could contract, shorten, or tighten, causing pain in the pelvis and discomfort during intercourse.
- These complications are not associated with a specific brand of vaginal mesh but to the product itself.
What to Do Next
If you suffered due to a vaginal mesh surgical implant, you must take steps to ensure your legal rights are protected. The FDA recommends that you report any side effects as soon as possible. This is both to add to the growing body of data and to better understand the problems related to vaginal mesh implants.
In order to make sure that the FDA can help you, provide the following information about your mesh implant:
- The manufacturer's name
- Brand name
- Catalog number
- Date of surgery
- Details of side effects
- Surgical approach
- Type of procedure
