When pelvic mesh was first introduced, doctors, surgeons, and patients looked forward to a reliable and safe new medical device. Also known as transvaginal mesh, or TVM, the product was intended to treat several serious conditions, including pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. However, transvaginal mesh lawsuit attorneys allege that C. R. Bard, Inc., as well as other makers of TVM, did not disclose the risks associated with their product. Affected patients also claim that TVM makers claimed that pelvic mesh was safe when despite widespread reports calling that safety into question.

Claim: TVM Maker Failed to Disclose Risk
TVM lawsuits claim that C. R. Bard did not disclose complication risks associated with the use of pelvic mesh, including:
- The potential of collagen material and polypropylene to cause adverse immune reactions in patients
- The possibility of the device shrinking or contracting once inside the body, causing injury to the patient
- Adverse immune reactions caused by the insertion of the pelvic mesh into an area with high bacteria levels
Women who sustain these or other severe complications from pelvic mesh are encouraged to contact an attorney to learn more about their options for filing a transvaginal mesh lawsuit.
Injured Patients May Be Entitled To Compensation
Patients who have suffered medical complications after being fitted with a transvaginal mesh implant may be entitled to damages resulting from their injuries, including medical expenses, lost wages or ability to work, and pain, suffering, and mental anguish. If a loved one dies from complications caused by TVM, family members may be eligible to pursue compensation for the wrongful death of their loved one, including funeral expenses, medical expenses prior to death, and the mental anguish associated with the loss of a family member.
