Covidien Transvaginal Mesh Implants Complication

After receiving the transvaginal mesh implant, many women suffer Covidien transvaginal mesh implants complication.

The most catastrophic complication is protrusion or extrusion of the mesh, which happens when the implant fails to remain securely in place, but pushes instead into the wall of the vagina, causing erosion and tissue damage.

Injuries sustained as a result of the transvaginal mesh include organ damage, excruciating pain, and mesh embedded in the tissue. Infections are likely, and intercourse may be quite painful.

Even after a number of surgeries, it is not guaranteed that the hazards due to eroded transvaginal mesh will become repaired.

The only recourse, usually, a patient that is injured has is pursuing a compensation claim.

You may have sustained injuries from a Covidien product. Attorneys specializing in Covidien transvaginal mesh are available to represent you and your loved ones in a claim for recovering damages.

In lawsuits that involve attorneys with years of experience, expertise, and skills, recovery has been made for billions of dollars.

Injuries Sustained by Covidien Transvaginal Mesh

The subject of a myriad of lawsuits, Covidien transvaginal mesh has allegedly caused severe injuries, several of which have settled with agreements of confidentiality.

C.R. Bard has disclosed that the company offered it with products of vaginal mesh, disputing that it believes Covidien should be held liable for offering defense and indemnification in a number of lawsuits against C.R. Bard.

Allegations against the Covidien company are quite similar to other claims for transvaginal mesh.

The allegations, primarily, are that defective design and substandard materials resulted in catastrophic injuries and side-effects, stating that this company neglected to offer necessary warnings.


With Covidien transvaginal mesh implants complication, claims for designs with defects are normally litigated with the use of theory regarding strict liability.

It needs to be established that there was a defect in design, and that the defect in design resulted in sustained injuries.

To establish a design defect, generally, your attorney specializing in Covidien transvaginal mesh needs to prove that the transvaginal mesh design was unreasonably harmful in fulfilling requirements of either the consumer expectations test, or the risk-utility test.

Among several factors considered are the scope of the defect, the cost of the product, and the severity of sustained injury.

It is a necessity, typically, to retain an expert to make a testimony about defects in design in order to fulfill the risk-utility test.

The court will normally focus, with the consumer expectations test, on an expectation of the consumer that is reasonable of the safety of the product when that product is used in a way that is reasonably foreseeable.

Associated with the implantation of transvaginal mesh, claims of neglect to warn are typical.

Women, generally, have been guaranteed that it is a simple way for stress urinary incontinence, or pelvic organ prolapse to be treated.

The women have not been told necessarily about the likelihood of complications that may ensue after surgery, and the challenges of fixing Covidien transvaginal mesh implants complication.
