    Surgical mesh implants have been used to aid the repair of hernias for years but they are also used to treat women with pelvic organ prolapse or a weak bladder.

    Pelvic organ prolapse can occur under any circumstance which puts increased pressure on the abdomen; however, it is most commonly seen in women following pregnancy – as the additional stress experienced during childbirth can cause problems.

    Other factors that may cause pelvic organ collapse include obesity, chronic constipation, cancers relating to the pelvic organs, and hysterectomy.

    Treatment of pelvic organ prolapse

    For some women suffering severe incontinence of pelvic organ prolapse, it is necessary to intervene with a surgical procedure. A mesh implant can be fitted in the area of collapse to act as a support for the damaged tissue. Following the procedure the organs which have dropped and become displaced should return to their normal position within the body and remain there.

    If you have been treated with a surgical mesh implant and have experienced unpleasant side effects, Healys medical negligence solicitors could help you.

    Dear Jonathan, Thank you for all your time and help over the last 3 years.  I could not have wished for anyone better to represent me.  Although there were some unexpected turns and tears you guided me through it all. I was very pleased with the outcome and know it was all down to your hard work.  If I ever know anybody who is in need of a solicitor, I would have no hesitation in recommending you. Once again many thanks.”

    Medical negligence – surgical mesh claims

    A number of women across the UK have experienced a negative outcome following treatment with surgical mesh. Some have even seen their original symptoms worsen.

    Symptoms associated with faulty mesh implants include:

    • Severe pain
    • Recurring infection
    • Bleeding
    • Difficulty urinating
    • Pain during sexual intercourse

    These symptoms can occur when the mesh implant has; perforated the bladder or other pelvic organs, begun to protrude from the vaginal wall, or begun to erode.

    Symptoms can be so severe that the person becomes housebound and is unable to perform daily tasks with ease.

    In 2012 four types of surgical mesh implant frequently used by the NHS in gynaecological surgical procedures were withdrawn from use following an increase in the number of patients reporting negative side effects following surgery.

    If you have been affected by the use of surgical mesh to treat pelvic organ prolapse, incontinence or any other condition, and you feel you were not properly informed of the risks of the procedure, you could be eligible for medical negligence compensation.

    Surgical Mesh Implant Claims experiences
    • Jonathan was able to help the husband of a 50 year old woman claim compensation after the hospital failed to diagnose her cancer. Mrs L attended hospital complaining of pain in her abdomen. She was discharged without further tests but unfortunately she died of thyroid cancer a few months later. Jonathan argued that the chance for a liver biopsy was missed during her visit to hospital and although this would not affect the unfortunate outcome, palliative care could have been arranged to ease Mrs L’s suffering. Jonathan was able to secure Mrs L’s husband a five figure sum in compensation.
    • Jonathan has also helped the family of a 71 year old man claim compensation after a complication in his surgery caused his death. Mr R was suffering from chest pains and was admitted to hospital for tests. He was found to have an issue with his heart and doctors attempted to rectify this with a surgical procedure. Unfortunately during this procedure an air pocket had got into one of his blood vessels which caused Mr R’s death. With expert medical evidence Jonathan was able to secure Mr R’s family £75,000 in compensation.
    • Jonathan helped X get further compensation and access to services to aid in his rehabilitation. X was a subject of sexual abuse from his step father between the ages of 5 and 7. Initial application for compensation was made in 1990 and X was awarded £10,000. After several attempts at his own life, X decided to contact Jonathan to seek further compensation. Jonathan was able to secure X £200,000 in compensation and an overall award of £1,200,000 inclusive of state benefits. More importantly Jonathan then arranged the Special Needs Trust to support X’s rehabilitation.
    • Jonathan helped the parents of Baby B claim compensation after a failure in care during labour resulted in Baby B’s death. Initially the Trust denied they were responsible for Baby B’s death but after negotiations the Trust admitted responsibility and Jonathan was able to negotiate an out of court settlement for Baby B’s parents.
