Sometimes called a pelvic sling, the transvaginal mesh implant is designed to help woman with pelvic and bladder prolapse. It is also made to help reinforce the walls of the vagina. In July 2011, the FDA had announced that those women who have had this procedure and used the sling are at a greater risk for developing mesh complications than a woman who choose other treatment. Because the manufacturers failed to warn doctors and patients of this risk, you may be eligible to file a claim against them.
