Transvaginal mesh contraction occurs when the vaginal mesh device shrinks and contracts around the vaginal tissue. Contraction of transvaginal mesh can cause organs to shift which may result in vaginal tightening, pain and discomfort.
Symptoms of mesh contraction include pain during sexual intercourse, bleeding, infection and urinary problems. In some cases, mesh contraction can require multiple corrective surgeries to repair.
Additional transvaginal mesh side effects include vaginal mesh erosion and organ perforation. According to reports from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), these side effects can lead to a significant decrease in a patient’s quality of life.
If you or a loved one received a transvaginal mesh implant and developed complications from the device, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit.
