Did you know that tens of thousands of women are injured every year from a product they thought would help them? Transvaginal mesh products that were improperly designed and tested have led many people to consider the benefits of filing a transvaginal mesh lawsuit. Many of these products have already been recalled after numerous patients have filed complaints about serious medical issues.
Basics of Transvaginal Mesh Implants
These devices are used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and incontinence in women, but when material breaks down and causes tissue damage, it is patients who pay the price. Many women who have had a defective implant report issues with constant pain, inability to have sexual intercourse, and continued incontinence. Frustrated and unsure of what to do, more of these women are looking for attorneys to help them file a transvaginal mesh lawsuit.
Continued reports from patients who have suffered serious pain and other issues after an implant has led to FDA scrutiny of these devices. Are you one of these patients? You need legal counsel to help you determine whether filing a claim is your next step.
Complications Associated With Transvaginal Mesh Implants
Once implanted, the mesh material could start eroding through vaginal walls or other organs within a few weeks or months of the surgery. These injuries can make everyday activities like walking, sitting, or sexual intercourse extremely painful or impossible. This can damage relationships and make going to work difficult. Some experts argue that these implants were marketed to doctors before they had undergone extensive testing that might have been able to discern the causes of some of these issues, fixing them before people suffered.
Many of the women who have sustained injuries from defective transvaginal mesh implants have been required to undergo additional surgeries in an attempt to repair the issues. Discovering the extent of their pain has led some of these people to file lawsuits. There are currently nearly 50,000 lawsuits pending around the country.
