A transvaginal mesh implant which is also known as a vaginal sling, patch, and tape, is a surgical mesh device used to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in women. The most common symptom for vaginal mesh failure is pelvic or vaginal pain.

Other symptoms include bleeding, persistent discharge, and a return of the treated condition (POP or SUI).

There has been a recent urgent review of some mesh tape products following surgical mesh procedures which left women in agony. Many women have had to endure a series of subsequent operations as surgeons attempt in vain to remove the mesh while others have been left in constant pain and even wheelchair-bound.

A Scottish Health Board has now banned the use of certain mesh implants and there is extensive litigation regarding the mesh device.

Augustus Cullen Law are currently investigating and acting for claimants that have suffered injuries following failed Mesh Implant Surgeries. Please contact our Medical Negligence team if you have suffered personal injury following a mesh implant surgery.
