The law offices of Schmidt & Clark, LLP, are pursuing mesh litigation on behalf of women who experienced severe health complications after being implanted with transvaginal mesh. Over the past several years, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has received nearly 4,000 reports of serious injuries associated with surgical mesh patches. Mesh complications have been reported to include erosion, infections, pain, dyspareunia, organ perforation, and the recurrence of urinary problems the devices were implanted to treat in the first place.

What’s the Problem with Transvaginal Mesh?
Manufactured by Johnson & Johnson (J&J), Bard, American Medical Systems (AMS), Boston Scientific, and other companies, transvaginal mesh patches are designed to stretch across the vaginal wall to add extra support to damaged tissues. In doing so, mesh can be an effective treatment for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) – a condition that occurs when the muscles and ligaments supporting a woman’s pelvic organs weaken and slip out of place, and stress urinary incontinence (SUI), which is characterized by the unintentional release of urine during routine physical activities. Unfortunately, despite initially being considered a revolutionary breakthrough treatment for these conditions, transvaginal mesh has recently been linked to a number of serious health complications.
Mesh litigation is currently being investigated on behalf of women who suffered one or more of the following complications:
- erosion of vaginal tissue
- mesh erosion
- perforations of the bowel, bladder or blood vessels
- recurrence of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI)
- urinary problems
- vaginal scarring
