Transvaginal Mesh Failure: Symptoms and Diagnosis
How can you tell if you suffered a transvaginal mesh implant failure? Symptoms include:
- Pain during sex
- Pelvic pressure

FDA Warning on Transvaginal Mesh
The FDA issued its first major warning regarding transvaginal mesh implants in 2008. The warning was in response to thousands of reported serious complications arising from placement and the use of the devices.
Product Liability & TV Mesh
The first lawsuits were filed shortly afterwards. They were based on the legal doctrine of product liability. The articles in our Legal Options and Rights section will help you understand that concept. All of the articles have been written by attorneys, but they clearly explain your rights.
