Internal injuries from pelvic mesh surgery

mesh implant 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.

Pelvic mesh implant removal help

Surgery and operations

When things have gone wrong, pelvic mesh implant removal may be the only option that’s left for patients to prevent any further suffering or reduce problems occurring.

But it isn’t always easy to get the help that you need. With NHS waiting times and resources for vaginal mesh complications sometimes limited, where do you turn when you need help sooner rather than later?

There are options for private surgery and treatment. It isn’t always guaranteed to work, and in some cases there’s nothing that can be done; but if something can be done, this is something you can explore. When it comes to the costs, a claim for compensation can be the way forward.

Is vaginal mesh removal surgery set to get easier?

bladder sling

It’s a known fact that vaginal mesh removal surgery is incredibly difficult to achieve. It can be hard – or in some cases, impossible – to remove. But could new surgical techniques improve the prospects of success?

It’s understood that a pioneering new method of surgery is being trialled in New Zealand that uses robotic arms that are controlled by a surgeon. This new method is thought to be potentially better for surgeons to be able to remove dangerous mesh from inside a patient with greater success and with reduced chances of damage to surrounding tissue.

For the many women who have suffered horrendous virginal mesh complications who have been unable to undergo successful surgery for removal, this new method may bring greater hope.

Options for private mesh removal surgery

As a law firm representing women for vaginal mesh compensation claims, we know how bad things can get. And that’s why we know how important private mesh removal surgery can be.

With the NHS still offering the procedure, the risks to women continue. In some cases, the mesh implant complications that can arise can be so bad that further surgery is needed together with a lengthy treatment plan. This can be achieved via the NHS, but it isn’t always easy to obtain. In some cases, people have had to wait for months for help, or even longer than a year. That can be the case for both surgery and for treatment.

So, what do you do when your life is on hold and you need to wait for a long time for treatment? Private mesh removal surgery and treatment is one option, and this can be factored into a claim for compensation.

Critics hit out at new vaginal mesh guidelines

Critics have hit out over the new vaginal mesh guidelines that have been introduced by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).

The new guidelines are said to have taken into account the experiences of numerous women who have suffered serious complications caused by vaginal mesh implants. There’s also said to be an increased focus on the need for women to be better informed about the potential risks, some of which can leave women unable to work or walk ever again.

But many believe that the new guidelines don’t go far enough and certainly don’t appear to have truly mirrored the horrendous suffering many women have endured. As a law firm acting for women who have suffered form vaginal mesh surgery, we know how bad it can get.

NHS mesh operations halted after new review

nhs mesh operations halted

We’re pleased with the news that NHS mesh operations are being halted in light of a recent review chaired by Baroness Julia Cumberlege.

Although this isn’t a total stop on all NHS mesh operations, it’s a widespread pause on the procedures pending further investigation into the dangers of transvaginal tape and transvaginal mesh, particularly given the seriousness of the complications that can arise.

We’ve been advising women who have suffered complications from mesh operations since 2013, so the news of the halt is, to us, long overdue.
