Transvaginal mesh patches: scope, brands, lawsuits

Transvaginal Surgical Mesh Lawsuit Information

How big are the problems associated with transvaginal mesh patches?

Consider this: In the United States, market data from manufacturers indicate that in 2010 approximately 300,000 women underwent surgical procedures to repair POP and approximately 260,000 underwent surgical procedures to repair stress urinary incontinence.

According to industry estimates, approximately one out of three POP surgeries used mesh patches and three out of four of the mesh POP procedures were done transvaginally. Over 80 percent were done transvaginally with mesh patches.

The potential for problems is great.
