Transvaginal Mesh, Pelvic / Bladder Sling Lawsuit
A transvaginal mesh, also known as a pelvic sling, is a woven form of fabric primarily designed to help women with pelvic and bladder prolapse and reinforce vaginal walls. This medical device is used to repair damaged or weakened tissue, and treat patients with Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) and Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP).
In July 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced that patients using the transvaginal mesh were at greater risk for developing complications compared to individuals who chose another option. Unfortunately, transvaginal mesh manufacturers failed to warn doctors and patients of this increased risk factor. Over the last few years, more than 1,000 cases of severe and life-threatening complications have been reported.
Since then, the FDA has instructed manufacturers of vaginal sling implants to study health problems that may be associated with their products. Doctors and patients are currently being advised to consider other alternatives.
Pelvic mesh sling implant side effects include infection, mesh erosion, urinary problems, pain during sexual intercourse, bleeding, vaginal scarring, bladder and bowel problems, discomfort, and recurrences of the prolapse.
Individuals in the state of Florida and elsewhere in the US who have developed a serious health condition due to a transvaginal mesh implant may have the grounds to file a lawsuit claim to seek monetary compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages.
