Serious Vaginal Mesh Injuries
The complaint explains that the plaintiff underwent surgery to have the Xenform Pubovaginal Sling implanted in August 2006 to treat her pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and her stress urinary incontinence (SUI). After having this bladder mesh sling implanted, however, the plaintiff developed severely painful complications that allegedly impaired her quality of life by causing her to sustain permanent injuries.
Some of the severe injuries reportedly associated with the Xenform Pubovaginal Sling are pelvic and urinary pain, dyspareunia (pain during sexual intercourse), vaginal scaring, mesh erosion through the vaginal lining, an increased risk of infection, puncturing of the blood vessels/bowels/bladder and recurrence of SUI.

FDA Warning Concerning Vaginal Mesh Risks
Following a review of more than 100 studies on bladder mesh slings, in 2011, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that transvaginal mesh complications more common than manufacturers initially warned and that, in some cases, vaginal mesh implants were no more effective at treating POP or SUI than traditional surgeries. Specifically, the FDA found that approximately 10 percent of patients who had transvaginal mesh implants have developed or would develop serious injuries that would require corrective surgery and may be even the removal of the vaginal mesh within 12 months of implantation. In some of the worst cases, women reportedly needed more than one revision surgery to try to correct the damage caused by bladder mesh slings.
The FDA’s 2011 warning also informed the public that vaginal mesh devices had greater risks of complications than traditional surgery for treating POP and SUI and that vaginal mesh implants may not even be sufficient at alleviating the symptoms of prolapse.
