Transvaginal Mesh Injury
Transvaginal Mesh Injury Lawyer Tempe Arizona
Transvaginal Mesh surgery was thought to be a revolutionary solution for stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and pelvic organ prolapse (POP). After only a few short years of usage, the product is now causing major complications for those who’ve had the procedure done. Patients are dealing with a wide range of painful symptoms, some of which may be permanent.
Every week the news reports that more women who have had the transvaginal mesh procedure done are experiencing severe medical problems. Though the issue is embarrassing to talk about, more women are coming forward to say that they have had serious complications from the procedure, which was supposed to have helped them.
How Could This Have Happened?
Transvaginal mesh was originally used to repair hernias. The fact that it had been used for years for this medical condition meant that it qualified for the FDA’s 510(k) fast track program. It was never tested at all for use with POP or SUI. The FDA fast-tracked their approval process and no testing was ever completed on the product.
Several companies who supply the mesh have been named in lawsuits, but to date, there may be 30 companies who sold it to unsuspecting doctors. The mesh is implanted vaginally to support weak pelvic and vaginal walls. Instead of strengthening the tissue, the mesh is breaking down and eroding into the bowel and vagina. Many victims have sought further surgeries to have the mesh removed, but because it becomes part of the tissue, it is extremely hard to remove completely.
