Transvaginal mesh is an implant resembling a net that is used to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI), which are common conditions afflicting women after childbirth, menopause or a hysterectomy. The device is implanted into a woman's pelvic muscles through the vagina, and meant to be a quicker and less invasive way to provide relief for women. Instead, transvaginal mesh devices have been shown to cause severe pain and health complications for patients.
The FDA first received complaints in 2011 from thousands of women who have reported injuries and complications associated with the transvaginal mesh device. To date, there have been thousands of lawsuits filed in various courts against manufacturers such as Johnson and Johnson's Ethicon and C.R. Bard for their negligence.
