Vaginal Mesh and Vaginal Sling Complications Investigation

Did You or some one you know have Vaginal Mesh surgery and experience medical issues?

A vaginal mesh lawsuit is available for women who have experienced

  • infection
  • pain
  • prolapsed
  • erosion of their vaginal mesh
  • urinary problems
  • blood vessel
  • bowel perforation
  •  bladder perforation
  • painful sexual intercourse
  • vaginal scarring,
  • organ injuries
  • any other problems after undergoing a vaginal mesh surgery.

A transvaginal mesh is a net-like surgical mesh that is inserted through the vagina to cure pelvic organ prolapsed and urinary incontinence in women. Victims are claiming that injuries caused by vaginal mesh or bladder sling complications could have been prevented if the makers specified complete warnings not only for the medical community but for the general public as well and prioritized accurate research on the design of their product.

At least six manufacturers are targeted by a rising number of lawsuits claiming that the implants are dangerous and defective thus, posing a risk to the body when used. Reports also show that there is no concrete evidence that vaginal insertion or bladder sling surgery can benefit women in any way.

Manufacturers currently facing a rising number of lawsuits over their vaginal sling and vaginal mesh products are:

  • R. Bard
  • Cook Medical Inc.
  • American Medical Systems, Inc.
  • Coloplast Corp.
  • Boston Scientific Corp.
  • Ethicon Inc.

Some of their mesh products have been banned or recalled due to a number of safety issues including design flaws, inadequate warnings to both doctors and patients regarding the product’s side effects, marketing lapses and manufacturing defects considering that the materials used to make such implants can cause inflammatory and adverse immune infections in patients. Victims are highly encouraged to seek legal advice and file a lawsuit so that they can be entitled to receive financial compensation for their injuries. They will also be compensated for any pain and suffering that they have gone through due to the complications caused by the surgery, as well as for their past, present and future medical bills. In October 2008 the FDA released the first warning regarding the complications caused by vaginal mesh. Following this, in July 2011 the FDA reported that women who had transvaginal mesh implant are considered at greater risk for health injuries compared to those who are undergoing a different kind of treatment for pelvic organ prolapse. This serves as a heads up to the doctors that in general, pelvic organ prolapse can be cured without the use of a bladder sling or pelvic mesh and that the vaginal mesh idea was not throughly thought out before being released to the public causing undo harm to women.
