Transvaginal Mesh Injury Lawyer in Surprise Arizona
Transvaginal mesh has been used for several years to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The mesh is implanted vaginally to support weakened pelvic walls. 30 or so companies have supplied the product to the medical community who believed it to be a cutting-edge solution for these conditions.
In July of 2011, the FDA declared that it had received almost 3,000 complaints associated with the transvaginal mesh procedure. Just several years later, approximately 10,000 women have come forward complaining of the mesh eroding into the bowel or vagina and other symptoms. Experts believe that thousands of these women will require further surgeries to try and correct the problems and a number of patients have had multiple surgeries already.
The public is wondering how something this severe could have gotten past the FDA’s rigorous testing program but the truth is that the product was never tested. It had been working well with hernia patients for several years and therefore qualified for the FDA’s 510(k) fast track program.
Thousands of women are now suffering with many painful symptoms. Doctors are recommending further surgeries for some to try and correct the problems. Numerous women have already had a dozen or more procedures completed without relief. But some of these victims may continue to experience difficulties for years to come.
Women across the country are coming forward to complain of symptoms like:
- Chronic infection
- Urinary problems
- Pain while having sex
Though some women are embarrassed to discuss their condition, others are outraged that such a thing could happen in this day and age.
