Vaginal mesh has been implanted into approximately 70,000 women in 2010 alone—but reports indicate many patients have experienced complications that have prompted lawsuits against medical device manufacturers.
Reports of transvaginal mesh failure injuries began to arise shortly after the product was introduced to the market in 2009. By 2011, companies began to pull units from shelves after women claimed the product had eroded inside their bodies, causing the tearing of tissues, laceration of organs, and extreme pain.
Thousands of women pursued legal action against the manufacturers of these defective medical devices, and decisions are beginning to be reached in these cases. According to The Legal Examiner, a Texas court ruled one manufacturer should pay a victim $73 million in damages, and similar decisions were recently reached in Florida and West Virginia.
