Transvaginal Mesh Lawyers
Patients who received transvaginal mesh to treat pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence may be eligible to file a lawsuit if they have suffered complications from the device. Talking with a transvaginal mesh attorney is the first step to finding out whether you may qualify to file a case or receive a settlement.
Hundreds of surgical mesh patients have already filed lawsuits against the manufacturers of these products after suffering complications from the mesh. These patients have alleged that the makers of transvaginal mesh products failed to properly warn them about the risks associated with their products, including severe pain, infection, bleeding, vaginal mesh erosion, sexual problems, urinary problems and organ perforation. Many patients had been forced to undergo surgery in order to treat the complications they suffered from a vaginal mesh product.
In September 2011, a Food and Drug Administration advisory panel voted to place transvaginal mesh products in its highest risk category due to the risk of complications. The FDA has stated that in spite of these health risks, transvaginal mesh carries no additional health benefits compared to other surgical treatments. Thus far, the agency has not announced plans to issue a transvaginal mesh recall.
If you or a loved one received a transvaginal mesh implant and have developed complications from the device, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit.
