The use of transvaginal tape (TVT) and mesh has caused some patients to suffer from serious pain and irreversible damage arising from TVT mesh complications.
TVT and TVM have been used to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI) for years. This is despite the record number of women who have been reporting complications and catastrophic damage from these devices since 2008.
The use of mesh implant devices has been dramatically reduced in recent years, but only in July 2018 did the NHS put a pause on their use in most cases. Despite this, transvaginal mesh and tape is still used in certain ‘unavoidable’ cases and still can still cause TVT mesh complications to this day.
If you have suffered complications as a result of Transvaginal Mesh or Transvaginal Tape surgery, you could be eligible to make a compensation claim; particularly if you were not fully given the advice about the potential risks associated with this surgery.
We have been fighting for justice for women suffering from complications arising from Transvaginal mesh and Transvaginal tape surgery for many years. Whilst the NHS has limited the use of these mesh implants considerably, they are still being used among women today.
Anyone affected by these issues can speak to our team for free, no-obligation advice here.
The Vaginal Mesh Lawyers is a specialist team of lawyers who focus on claims for women who have suffered as a result of transvaginal mesh or transvaginal tape surgery.
We have been helping women who have suffered a range of complications, including some with lifelong problems, since 2013. We are more than prepared to take on some of the biggest organisations in the sector to fight for the rights of the clients that we represent.
There are roughly three main areas in which we can help women make a compensation claim. Firstly, if the transvaginal mesh or transvaginal tape fitted is defective, there can be grounds for a claim. Next, we can also look at any surgical or treatment errors that may have occurred, such as when implanting the mesh or tape, that could lead to discomfort or damage to the surrounding tissues and organs. Finally, we can also assess if the individual had inadequate advice about the risks of surgery and all the alternative options available.
Transvaginal mesh and transvaginal tape surgery can lead to patients suffering from many different complications, and infertility claims for compensation is a major one.
There have been concerns over the safety of using vaginal mesh and tape for longer than a decade, yet they are still being used today across the world. After high numbers of complications have been reported, investigations have occurred across the globe and the use of transvaginal mesh and tape has been strongly discouraged by many experts, and it is only now used in extreme cases in many places.
Whilst this is a big win for women who have suffered as a result of vaginal mesh and tape, the use of such devices has not stopped, meaning there is still a way to go. Further, those who have already suffered the consequences need help when it comes to a legal case for personal injury compensation.
Transvaginal mesh and transvaginal tape surgery can cause many complications. One of the more serious complications that can arise after surgery is neuromuscular problems. This means that your muscles can be impaired, and this can lead to many issues for patients.
The number of complications that could arise from transvaginal mesh or transvaginal tape surgery is huge. For a long time now, women around the world have been suffering from serious and lifelong issues, and complications can be so bad, in some cases, that women are left worse off than before their surgery.
Anyone who has suffered problems and complications from vaginal mesh surgery, including neuromuscular problems, could be eligible to make a compensation claim. For eligible clients, we can offer No Win, No Fee legal representation.

You could be eligible to claim thousands of pounds in compensation where you have suffered from nerve damage from vaginal mesh surgery.
There can be many problems and complications that women suffer from, but this can be one of the most severe. Nerves do not like to be disturbed, so any injury to nerves can cause irreversible damage and a great deal of permanent pain and discomfort.
It is important that anyone affected by pelvic mesh issues is able to access some form of justice if they are able to, which is what we do.
In some pelvic mesh compensation cases, you could be eligible to claim for private treatment costs as part of a No Win, No Fee legal case.
