With safety concerns dating back to over a decade, there are ongoing controversies surrounding vaginal mesh implants. They are still in use, despite known complications and calls to ban the treatment. Countless patient testimonies have condemned the implants for being unfit for purpose and causing debilitating pain, and much of the outrage can stem from poor advice about risks that some women received prior to treatment.
Trusting in the openness of their doctors, it appears that many women were not properly informed about the potential consequences of undergoing this controversial procedure. If you consider yourself a victim of inadequate advice about mesh treatments, you may be eligible to claim compensation with us, and you may be eligible for No Win, No Fee legal representation.
Potential vaginal mesh complications can be numerous. From reduced mobility to a relapse of urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse, they can have life-altering effects on a person’s life. One of the most damaging complications can be organ perforation, whereby the damage can extend into other organs in the area.
In some cases, vaginal mesh surgery is not fit for purpose, either causing a relapse of the condition it is supposed to treat, or causing more pain and damage than the patient was experiencing before the treatment. Some women have been kept in dark about the extent of the risks, and the poor or insufficient advice of medical professionals means many could be entitled to claim compensation.
At the Vaginal Mesh Lawyers, we are here to provide women with advice when they have been let down.
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.

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.

More than 92,000 women in the UK have been fitted with transvaginal mesh or transvaginal tape between 2007 and 2015. Following concerns over the safety of these devices, recent figures have slowed down. However, there are still women today being fitted with mesh or tape that could have catastrophic side-effects.
