What Is The  A Vaginal Mesh Or Bladder Sling Lawyers Are Filing Lawsuits For?

The vaginal mesh implant  or Bladder Sling currently involved in the lawsuits  is a surgical mesh  device implanted to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in women.

Organ prolapse occurs when the  pelvic wall  weakens and the bladder, rectum, small bowel and/or uterus  falls down into the vaginal canal.  Weakened muscle  tissue  due to child birth, age or injury  results  in prolapse . It was hoped that the Prolene mesh would offer the extra support.  These mesh used for   prolapse are failing and women are filing pelvic mesh repair lawsuits.
