Texas Transvaginal Mesh Attorney Serving the Greater Houston Area

According to data from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), Transvaginal mesh surgery may have caused countless patients to develop painful, even debilitating complications. These complications not only affect your quality of life, they affect your long-term health.

Between 2008 and 2010, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) received more than 1,500 reports of transvaginal mesh complications after POP repair surgery, including:

  • Erosion of the mesh into the vagina (also called exposure, extrusion or protrusion)
  • Contraction or shrinkage of the mesh
  • Pelvic pain
  • Urinary problems
  • Vaginal scarring
  • Infections
  • Organ perforation
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Bleeding
  • Chronic discharge
  • Blood vessel or tissue damage
  • Emotional problems
  • Neuromuscular problems
  • Recurrent prolapse

In July 2011, the FDA warned that serious complications associated with surgical mesh for transvaginal repair of POP are not rare, a change from its previous position on this issue. To be eligible to file a transvaginal mesh lawsuit, you must have undergone surgery prior to July 2011.

Transvaginal mesh lawsuits are currently pending against several manufacturers including:

  • American Medical Systems, Inc.
  • Boston Scientific
  • C.R. Bard, Inc.
  • Johnson & Johnson's Ethicon division

All personal injury and product liability cases have statute of limitations, or the time in which you must file a claim in order to pursue any recovery. This specific timeframe varies and will depend on the state where you resided when you underwent surgery. Chandler, Mathis & Zivley represents clients across the country and are well-versed in the various statute of limitation laws.
