If you or a loved one has suffered from mesh complication when using a transvaginal mesh implant during your pelvic organ prolapse repair surgery, you may be entitled to compensation. In July 2011, the FDA made the announcement that patients who have had a pelvic organ prolapse repair surgery and used a surgical mesh are possibly at a greater risk for developing mesh complications than other women who underwent different surgical treatment. Due to failure to warn by the manufacturers about this increased risk, you may be able to file a claim.
