The Finnell Firm

Not too long ago, many women in Georgia may have been told about the benefits of transvaginal mesh. Doctors used this product to treat what the medical world calls "Pelvic Organ Prolapse," or POP

POP is a condition in which a woman's organs in the abdomen, usually the bladder, do not stay in place because the woman's muscles in the area have been weakened by the bearing of children. The organs then push against the vagina and can cause pain.

For most women, this isn't ultimately a major health issue, but many, hundreds of thousands across the country, need medical assistance with this condition, usually through surgery.

Doctors used vaginal mesh as what some could think of as fencing around the area. While the idea is good in theory, the problem is that, over time, it became apparent that the issues associated with this product might outweigh its benefits, which even federal regulatory authorities have in more recent years questioned.

Problems with the product included pain, as well as a higher risk of infections scarring and an incontinent bladder or other difficulties with one's urinary tract. Moreover, it seemed that the problem the mesh was meant to stop, POP, still could recur even despite a woman's having the mesh. Finally, in some serious cases, the mesh was known to comes detached from where the surgeon placed it, sometimes even poking out of a woman's vagina.

Getting transvaginal mesh out of a woman's body is itself a complicated process that is not full proof. Moreover, the surgery is only to undo what arguably never should have been done in the first place. Women who have experienced these sorts of issues may have a right to pursue compensation through a medical product liability case.
