Also referred to as a pelvic sling, bladder mesh, or transvaginal mesh, vaginal mesh support systems are used to fix pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence, and have been known to cause serious internal injuries. These transvaginal mesh patch implants, manufactured by Johnson & Johnson, C.R. Bard, Boston Scientific, American Medical Systems, and others, may cause pain, infection, erosion, organ damage, and corrective surgeries, among other vaginal mesh injuries.
Bernheim Dolinsky Kelley pursues cases against all brands, including these commonly used products:

Bard Avaulta Vaginal Mesh

Boston Scientific Pinnacle Vaginal Mesh

Ethicon Gynecare Vaginal Mesh

If you have experienced complications with any of these devices, you should absolutely consider speaking with an attorney.

Vaginal Mesh Problems

Between the years of 2005 and 2010, nearly 4,000 vaginal mesh injuries have been reported to the Food and Drug Administration.  In a 2010 article in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology, researchers stated that they had to cease a vaginal mesh clinical trial early because of the higher-than-expected number of complications and injuries.  The trial was stopped when it was discovered that more than 15 percent of women who were implanted with vaginal mesh suffered vaginal mesh erosion within only three months of implantation.  As a result of numerous negative reports, the FDA issued a vaginal mesh warning to patients and physicians in 2011, cautioning that the risks of using vaginal mesh are so severe that alternative treatments should be considered.  It is now widely accepted that, in most cases, pelvic organ prolapsed can be treated without the use of vaginal mesh.
