For many years, vaginal mesh was an accepted medical device, with perhaps many people taking its safety for granted. However, over the past few years, patients’ stories and independent investigations have revealed that vaginal mesh has caused severe complications for a number of patients. Vaginal mesh complications can vary widely in nature, but one of the most notable consequences is that pelvic organs can end up prolapsing.
It is this symptom that can prove vaginal mesh is completely unfit for purpose in some cases, as the implants are specifically used to treat pelvic organ prolapse for some patients, as well as stress urinary incontinence. Prolapse can already cause difficult practical implications for women, so when coupled with the pain often associated with vaginal mesh complications, the condition can become debilitating.
If you have suffered from complications as a result of vaginal mesh, we want to ensure that your voice can be heard. In a medical negligence claim, vaginal mesh victims could be eligible to recover compensation for the suffering that they have endured. If we are able to prove a medical practitioner was guilty of negligence, you may be able to access thousands or even tens of thousands of pounds in compensation.
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.
Despite their approval by the MHRA (Medicine and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency), pelvic mesh implants have been linked to significant and, at worst, life-altering complications in a worrying number of the patients who have received them. Many who have been affected by negative consequences caused by these devices could be eligible to claim considerable pelvic mesh compensation amounts for the huge impact on their lives.
Used to treat ailments like urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse in women, the implants have been found to provoke significant pain and suffering, leaving many wondering how this questionable treatment has been allowed to continue. In many cases, the use of pelvic mesh implants could constitute medical negligence, making the victims eligible to claim compensation. It is simply unacceptable that so much preventable harm has been caused, so contact us to receive legal advice if you are one of the victims.
Vaginal mesh, while still in use for things like the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence, has caused severe complications for thousands of women. As a treatment that is designed to be permanent, the mesh can be difficult – or even impossible – to remove. As such, many patients are forced to live with permanent problems relating to their health and well-being.
Those who have experienced complications often had no idea that such risks were involved, which means that there can be ethical issues with regard to the treatment they have been given. For patients who have been subjected to this questionable surgical procedure, it may be possible to make a medical negligence claim if a medical professional is found to be at fault.
The Vaginal Mesh Lawyers are strong opponents of this risky treatment. We are here to help anyone who has fallen victim to the devastating complications of vaginal mesh.
In November 2017, the health watchdog NICE issued a recommendation for a vaginal mesh ban. The month before, the government opposed calls to ban the treatment.
These two opposing viewpoints provide just one example of the controversy that still surrounds vaginal mesh implants, which have faced criticism both in the UK and across the world.
The mesh implants, which are used to treat issues such as pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI), have widely been condemned by women who have undergone the treatment, many of whom now have irreversible complications and constant pain.
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.

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.

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.

According to the Daily Mail, a review from the Independent Medicines And Medical Devices Safety is set to be published soon.

Others were said to have been questioned despite suffering from chronic pain and problems.
