Scottish women who received implants of transvaginal mesh, and allege that these medical devices caused serious injuries through their defective design, are taking their stories of pain and suffering to Scottish courts later this year. It is expected that hundreds of women will be filing transvaginal mesh lawsuits targeted at device manufacturers. As detailed in an article recently published by the BBC, two of these Scottish women underwent surgery to receive implants of transvaginal mesh to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP).
Their transvaginal mesh products proved to be defective, as the mesh morphed from semi-pliable to a hard and inflexible material over time. These two patients point to their transvaginal mesh implants as the cause for their injuries.
Constant and unrelenting pain have come to define the everyday experiences of these two Scottish women, as they described what life is like for them now to the BBC. One of these women, Shona Trainer, underwent four surgical operations to remove the hardened mesh, none of which brought her any relief.
Their lives have been permanently changed by these defective medical devices, and with the benefit of hindsight, they wish that they were better informed by health care providers, as well as mesh manufacturers, prior to undergoing surgery as to the risks associated with transvaginal mesh implants.
