After being implanted with a transvaginal mesh patch, a Rhode Island woman began to experience potentially-deadly complications caused by the mesh. Multiple surgeries were needed to repair the transvaginal mesh patch, creating throbbing pain to the woman’s surgery area. After seeking the legal advice of d’Oliveira and Associates, who remained jointly responsible for the case with an experienced transvaginal mesh patch lawyer, an out of court settlement of $200,000 was received by the woman due to her transvaginal mesh patch lawsuit.
What is the Transvaginal Mesh Patch Used to Treat?
Transvaginal mesh patches are implanted to repair pelvic organ prolapse (POP), which occurs when one of a woman’s pelvic organs, such as the uterus, moves from its normal position in the human body and begins to push up against the vagina. Transvaginal mesh patches are also used to treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI), which is the unintentional loss of urine commonly caused by physical movement or activity, including during a sneeze or cough. Many, if not most, of these types of patches have been recalled or are no longer used by surgeons due to their extreme complications and side effects.
Why is Removal of the Mesh Patch So Dangerous?
Transvaginal mesh patches are implanted into the body with permanency in mind. However, many of these patches are causing woman excruciating pain, and can become fatal if not treated correctly. Because of the possibility of the transvaginal mesh patch to pierce an organ or muscle inside a woman’s body, removal of such patch is extremely dangerous. This can be compounded by the patch migrating from the original implantation location. This may lead to several surgeries for the patient, many of which creating even more-dangerous side effects and complications to a woman’s life.
