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.
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.

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.
It’s understood that the results of a pelvic mesh inquiry are set to “vindicate” patients who have been complaining of issues for years.
We represent a number of women for vaginal mesh compensation claims, so we know how bad people can suffer. In some cases, women have been left with irreversible damage that has changed their lives forever.
According to the Daily Mail, a review from the Independent Medicines And Medical Devices Safety is set to be published soon. Reportedly, the pelvic mesh inquiry review will reveal worrying revelations about how women suffering from horrendous complications were reportedly doubted and ignored, despite presenting with serious symptoms. Others were said to have been questioned despite suffering from chronic pain and problems.
You may recall the Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust pelvic mesh issues involving former patients of Dr Angamuthu Arunkalaivanan that triggered a significant recall.
It’s an issue that dates back from a few years, so most patients will have received their recall letters and any additional steps that needed to be undertaken should have been done so. However, if some patients experience problems a long time after the recall notification, there may still be time left to claim.
We must stress that you must contact our team ASAP to determine if you are still in time, though. But, since we have resolved legal action that we have taken for this issue, we wanted to remind those who were affected about their rights to pursue compensation.
If you have suffered as a result of inadequate pelvic mesh aftercare, you could be entitled to make a claim for medical negligence compensation with us.
We may also be able to represent you for the case on a No Win, No Fee basis.
Aftercare is incredibly important when a pelvic mesh or sling has been fitted. You don’t want anything to go wrong with the device because it could lead to severe problems and complications, and they could be permanent. If this does happen, a patient could be entitled to bring a claim for vaginal mesh injury compensation.
The issue with long-term pelvic mesh complications is that they can be permanent and severe, and there’s still too little evidence being properly assessed in many people’s view.
When the revised NICE guidelines were published last year that allowed the continuation of this controversial procedure, there was a suggestion that there was an absence of long-term knowledge. However, this has been strongly challenged on the basis that there are thousands of women worldwide who have been suffering serious mesh implant complications for years, yet their voices appear to not be heard.
We act for women who are suffering from irreversible damage from a vaginal mesh procedure. Although we can make sure that women are entitled to justice with a claim for personal injury compensation, we believe far more needs to be done to address the underlying problems.
Some patients can suffer internal injuries from pelvic mesh surgery. Such injuries can be caused by the device itself failing, or during surgery for implantation or removal.
In some cases, women who suffer these kinds of vaginal mesh complications can be entitled to justice. You could be entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation for any pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused. You may also be able to recover damages for any losses and expenses as well.
If this applies to you, here’s some advice about your options for justice and how we may be able to represent you for a legal case on a No Win, No Fee basis.
If you’re suffering with severe pain from vaginal mesh surgery that has gone wrong, we may be able to represent you on a No Win, No Fee basis for a personal injury compensation claim.
Severe pain from vaginal mesh complications can be common. It’s one of the reasons as to why patients need to be thoroughly advised when it comes to exactly what they’re getting themselves into.
With some patients reportedly not being advised during the consultations, but their records suggesting that thorough advice was given when it wasn’t, getting the right legal support is essential.
