Transvaginal Mesh Failure Lawyer in SC
Transvaginal mesh (TVM) is a medical device made of a synthetic material that is surgically implanted to provide added strength and support for a woman’s pelvic muscles, which can become weak as a result of age and childbirth.
Transvaginal mesh products, also known as “urogynecologic surgical mesh,” are used to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP), a condition in which organs in the pelvic area begin to drop and push against the walls of the vagina. POP usually involves the bladder, but the urethra, uterus, cervix, vagina, rectum and small bowel can also prolapse (drop). Transvaginal mesh is also used to treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI), a condition in which weakened bladder muscles can cause incontinence (involuntary urination).
