Are you one of the many woman who currently live in Vermont? If you have recently undergone a pelvic organ prolapse repair surgery, you are at a much higher risk for developing mesh complications, according to the FDA as of July 2011. Unfortunetly, women who chose to have a trans vaginal mesh procedure than pursue other options are coming forward with many serious and life threatening symptoms. Some of these include bleeding, pain during sex, irritation, vaginal scarring, mesh erosion, and more.

If you live in any of the following cities in Vermont, you may have a legal case:

  • South Burlington
  • Burlington
  • Barre
  • Rutland
  • St. Albans
  • Newport
  • Vergennes
Sometimes it is referred to as a pelvic sling, the transvaginal mesh sling is designed to help women in treating bladder prolapse, pelvic prolapse, and other types of pelvic problems. There have been over 1,000 complaints in the last 3 years against the product manufacturers for their negligence and fail to warn patients, and doctors about this increasing risk.

Below are some of the hospitals in Vermont where you may have had your surgery. This is a partial list so even if the hospital you had your procedure at is not in this list, you may still have a case.

  • Fletcher Allen Health Care
  • Dartmoth-Hitchcock Alliance
  • Gifford Medical Center
  • Brattleboro Memorial Hospital
  • Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital
