Both men and women have suffered harmful side effects caused by implantation of defective mesh products including:
- Hernia mesh
- Transvaginal mesh
Thousands of patients were promised relief from ailments such as pelvic organ prolapse, stress urinary incontinence and hernia pain. Instead, many experienced medical nightmares as complications made life nearly intolerable and no corrective surgery could bring relief. Other mesh products cited in legal actions have included artery implants.

- Avaulta Plus by C. R. Bard
- Prolift by Johnson & Johnson
If you received an implant of one of these or any other mesh product and you have experienced painful complications, Trapp & Geller urges you to take action. Do not simply endure a life of quiet desperation without reviewing all your options. You will likely need both medical and legal professional help to determine the best path forward. If it turns out that your mesh device implant was defective and the manufacturer was not fully truthful about it when you agreed to surgery, you may be eligible for compensation. Some injured patients have filed lawsuits and won sizable awards. Financial relief will not bring back your health as it was before a mesh injury but it can help you find new ways to cope.
Specific mesh products that have been named in recalls and lawsuits have included:
