Covidien Transvaginal Mesh Implants

Covidien is one of the many manufacturers of transvaginal mesh products. Transvaginal mesh devices have been found to be defective and dangerous causing serious medical problems for women who have been implanted with these devices. Over the years, Covidien manufactured, marketed and distributed several devices under different names.

Covidien devices were meant to repair pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or stress urinary incontinence (SUI).

The devices that Covidien has sold include:


  • IVS Tunnelar Intra-Vaginal Sling
  • IVS Tunnelar Placement Device
  • IVS Tunnelar Parietene Polyproylene Mesh
  • IVS Tunnelar Surgipro Polyproylene Surgical Mesh

According to Covidien, the transvaginal mesh slings are a way to restore normal pelvic anatomy without the more complicated surgery. Although the transvaginal implant surgery is minimally evasive, the device has been found to be much more dangerous than non-mesh treatment.

There are lawsuits that are filed against Covidien for the injuries suffered by women related to transvaginal mesh devices that have been implanted in them. Lawsuits have been filed already against Covidien and hundreds more are about to follow. The Covidien lawsuits claim that the implants were defectively designed. These allegations hold that the medical device manufacturers should be accountable for choosing not to test the products before sales that led to a great deal of corporate profits.

Patients who are filing lawsuits against the transvaginal mesh manufacturers are entitled to compensation that includes:

  • Cost of the additional revision surgeries;
  • Future medical expenses including hospital stays, physicians and rehabilitation costs;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Loss of consortium or the ability to have sexual relations; and
  • Lost wages.

Client Reviews
“We were devastated when our 31 year-old son was killed by a negligent driver. Kreisman Law Offices did everything to help us through this very difficult time, including coming out to the house several times which was a comfort. My wife and I were extremely pleased with Mr. Kreisman’s compassion and care for this very tragic and troubling time.” C.B.
“Bob Kreisman did everything possible in handling the trial of this case. It was devastating that I traumatically lost my leg above the knee in this truck accident. However, it was not an easy case to win. His staff was so prepared for the trial that it was not surprising that the settlement offers continued to rise until we finally accepted the multi-million settlement while the jury was still deciding the case. My wife and I were delighted that we could secure our future with this settlement. We thank Mr. Kreisman and his incredible staff for working so hard for our benefit.” T.P.
“My mother died because doctors dropped the ball. I called Robert Kreisman and he immediately set up an appointment for my entire family. We met at his offices and I was very comfortable that he would do the best for my dad and my brothers. He spent hours with all of us in preparing for depositions and he hired top notch experts, all of which contributed to an incredible settlement before trial. I know that he is dedicated to his cases and particularly to the people he works for and the people who work with him. He continues to be generous in contributing annually to my mother’s memory and to make known to the public the signs and symptoms of brain tumors.” V.S.
“My dad was ignored and mistreated at the nursing home that we placed him in. It didn’t take long for us to realize that we made a big mistake, particularly after my dad developed these terrible bedsores. We transferred him as we were contacting Mr. Kreisman. He was referred to us by a lawyer we have known for a long time and respect his opinion. Mr. Kreisman and his staff worked tirelessly to resolve this case. We were fortunate to have his services and will recommend him to anyone.” T.J.
