Transvaginal mesh – individual claims

Transvaginal Mesh implants (commonly referred to as pelvic mesh, vaginal mesh, a “hammock,” or a “sling”) are generally used to treat pelvic organ prolapse (“POP”) and stress urinary incontinence (“SUI”) in women.  TVM implants have been  associated with the development of a number of side effects, often due to mesh erosion through the vaginal wall, infection, pain, urinary problems, recurrence of prolapsed and/or incontinence, bladder perforation, vaginal scarring, pain during sexual intercourse, and other problems which may lead to a significant decrease in quality of life due to discomfort and pain.
