Vaginal mesh complications: more common than previously thought
In July 2011, the FDA announced new findings that complications associated with transvaginal mesh were not in fact as “rare” an occurrence as previously believed. The agency further stated that use of gynecological mesh may not in fact be any more effective at curing pelvic organ prolapse (POP) than other surgical methods.
The news quickly spread and today, over 500 women have filed a vaginal mesh lawsuit. More have sought legal counsel to determine if they too can file a vaginal mesh lawsuit of their own.
Transvaginal mesh complications include:
- Vaginal mesh erosion
- Vaginal mesh extrusion
- Recurrence of pelvic organ prolapse (POP)
- Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI)
- Pain, bleeding, recurrent UTI
Vaginal mesh lawsuit eligibility may be determined by obtaining a free evaluation of an individual’s experience with this controversial medical device. A review of the medical records and brief interview with a Transvaginal Mesh lawyer may be sufficient to determine the viability of a injured person’s case.
Women with concerns about their health should first seek medical attention before bringing their questions about Vaginal mesh lawsuit eligibility to the attention of qualified attorney.
