Pelvic Mesh Products Caused Injuries
Transvaginal mesh products sold to women to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and/or stress urinary incontinence (SUI), pose significant undisclosed risks and, in some cases, cause devastating injuries. Jury trials in the first three transvaginal mesh cases resulted in verdicts for the plaintiffs with awards of $5,500,000, $11,100,000, and $2,000,000, respectively.
Transvaginal mesh causes symptoms including
- pain (localized radiating into lower back or extremities, and/ or during urination/intercourse)
- in many cases, the need for corrective surgeries.
Unfortunately, for some women these symptoms are permanent. Some victims develop problems shortly after implantation while others may go years before experiencing complications.
**AWKO is no longer accepting cases for transvaginal mesh injuries.**
