Transvaginal Mesh Injury
Transvaginal Mesh Injury Lawyer Yuma
Patients outfitted with medical devices or who've undergone necessary surgery often endure medical care with the belief that their health will improve. The idea that products that are approved for sale and prescriptions are safe give patients peace of mind that they will be taken care of and their health will actually improve with medical device or product intervention. In contrast, not all pharmaceutical and medical device companies have the best interest of patients in mind. On the other hand, profit can become more important than adequate warnings and the provision of information patients need to make informed decisions about their care.
What is Transvaginal Mesh?
A medical device, transvaginal mesh is inserted into the body through the vaginal opening during pelvic surgery, proving reinforcement for conditions including: Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Stress Urinary Incontinence.
Despite the proposed purpose behind transvaginal mesh, in 2011, the Food and Drug Administration warned doctors and consumers alike about the serious risks associated with the surgical mesh. In contrast with other options for treatment and surgery, transvaginal mesh had greater risks, the Administration noted.

I did not know what to do. I had never been hurt in a wreck before and this was a major accident that was not my fault. I reached out to Zinda Law Group and they were fantastic, answered all my questions, got me help immediately, and took care of everything!!
There comes a time when you need someone in your corner that you can trust. Our time came when we knew we needed the advice and counsel of an attorney. The day we walked into Zinda Law Group we knew we were covered.
There is a reason why this law firm has a 5 star rating. My experience with personal injury attorney Joe Caputo and all of the staff at Zinda Law Group has been excellent... I would definitely recommend Zinda Law Group.

This is a really great firm! They settled my personal injury case in a year. Throughout the whole process, they were keeping in touch with me and helping me get the best treatment possible. They honestly know what they are doing. It was a pleasure working with these guys.
Everyone was so professional and was very interested in helping me with my issues. They were very upfront and honest about what I could expect.
I contacted Zinda Law Group after getting nowhere on my own with a personal injury case. I am so thankful I did. They took it off my plate and handled everything from appointments, to phone calls, and emails.
Complications and Symptoms of Transvaginal Mesh
While there are some side effects for transvaginal mesh that occur on a more frequent basis, other symptoms and problems may take place less frequently but may have detrimental repercussions. Urinary complications, need for more surgeries in the future, pain, infection and erosion are just some of the issues patients have reported as a result of the defective medical device.
Some of the pain and suffering caused by surgical mesh implanted into the vaginal region makes it difficult for women who’ve had the surgery to perform many of the activities they formerly participated in. Walking, working, sex and other physical activates become excruciating, transforming the very lives of victims of the bad device and their families and loved ones.
In addition, multiple, future surgeries may be necessary to correct some of the damage done to a woman’s body as a result of surgical mesh implantation. The hardship associated with medical bills, time away from one’s career and the difficulties placed on loved ones can produce financial difficulties that may have been unforeseen.
As early as 2011, transvaginal mesh was linked to serious complications and painful side effects. But despite the information and data revealed, some women and doctors were not adequately warned about the risks associated. In the same year, the Food and Drug Administration recognized the side effects and possible dangers tied to the use of transvaginal mesh used for Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Stress Urinary Incontinence. More than 3,500 reports of negative, sometimes serious, side effects were reported to the FDA by 2011, highlighting the serious flaws of the medical device.
