Women in Dallas used transvaginal mesh because they were told it was a safer alternative to conventional pelvic organ prolapse surgery. Now, many of those women are working with lawyers. Not only is transvaginal mesh less safe than traditional surgery, it can also cause serious injuries.

To date, more than 7,000 women have contacted lawyers throughout the country to hold the makers of transvaginal mesh liable. If you live in Dallas or the surrounding Texas communities, contact The Law Firm of Ted B. Lyon & Associates to help protect your rights.

In May 2011, researchers compared the effectiveness of transvaginal mesh to colporrhaphy, the traditional pelvic organ prolapse surgery. The researchers concluded that transvaginal mesh had a higher risk of serious injuries, including:

  • Injuries to organs near the pelvic area
  • Risk of bladder infection seven times greater than colporrhaphy
  • Risk of urinary incontinence two times greater than colporrhaphy
  • More than three percent of women required corrective surgery after transvaginal mesh

A few months after that study, the Food and Drug Administration warned women that serious complications from transvaginal mesh patches were not rare. In addition to the injuries listed above, many women have also experienced problems that can be more difficult to quantify, such as difficulty during sex and destroyed marital relationships because of sexual problems.

At this point, lawsuits have been filed against every major transvaginal mesh manufacturer, which makes it clear that the design of the patches is ineffective. Regardless of who produces the mesh, it will likely lead to complications for the women who use it.

If you are one of the women in Texas who was victimized by dangerous transvaginal mesh, it's important to consider your legal options. Call 800-724-5482 to schedule your free initial consultation with our firm.
