Transvaginal Mesh Injury Lawyer
The Bard Avaulta Transvaginal Mesh (TVM) product has been used to treat female urinary problems associated with pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). POP occurs when the muscles that support the vagina stretch or become weak resulting in sagging or dropping of the bladder, bowel, uterus and rectum. Urine leakage created during moments of physical stress characterizes SUI. The FDA warns women that they may have greater risks and complications if using transvaginal surgical mesh to repair POP or SUI. Call today to discuss filing an injury claim.
