The Vaginal Mesh Lawsuit Center provides comprehensive information about these dangerous mesh products and the harms they can cause.

Types of Vaginal Mesh Implants

Some recipients of vaginal mesh implants—especially those that have been implanted through the vagina—have had the mesh shrink or wear through their vaginal mucosa. The bodies of other patients have simply rejected vaginal mesh implants (sometimes called “bladder slings”). As a result, many recipients of vaginal mesh implants are experiencing harmful side effects.

Victims of Vaginal Mesh Implants Are Filing Lawsuits

(If your vaginal mesh implant has been recalled, however, that fact may increase your chances of receiving compensation for your injuries.)
