Transvaginal Mesh Update: New TVM Usage Studies Released

Transvaginal mesh lawsuits continue to pour into state and federal courts. As more and more women who have been harmed by faulty vaginal mesh procedures, the media coverage and medical research behind the problem have both boosted. A new study “has found that prolapse procedures that utilize vaginal mesh products rose significantly between 2005 and 2010.” (Bernstein Liebhard LLP)

The study to analyze trends in vaginal mesh and other similar procedures was published last month in the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology. This study suggested that from 2005 – 2010 as the release of various transvaginal mesh kits increased, the usage of these products in medical procedures increased as well. Currently the trend doesn’t hold true – likely because of the FDA warnings released about the potentially dangerous procedure in July 2011.

Complications with transvaginal mesh procedures are not rare. Complications with such procedures include mesh erosion, infection, pain and scarring. No woman should have to live with this pain.
