What is a Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit and why are they being filed?
Unfortunately, recent years have seen alarming reports of serious complications from such treatments, with health regulators warning that one in ten women will suffer pelvic mesh problems. The volume of incidents became so substantial that the FDA issued a public safety notice in late 2008 about vaginal mesh devices and in 2011, warned that complications from TVM products are not rare, and that alternative treatments may be preferable. In 2012, the FDA issued a requirement that manufacturers of the products conduct new clinical trials to assess the risk of serious complications.
Medical device lawsuits are commonly filed after a company is accused of selling a product that contains a design, manufacturing, or marketing defect (e.g. inadequate warnings).
Transvaginal mesh lawsuit products specifically allege:
- Manufacturers failed to properly advise doctors as to the risks associated with the mesh implants
- The materials used to construct the mesh products can cause adverse immune or inflammatory reactions in patients
- Implantation of a defective bladder sling or vaginal mesh can result in serious harm due to contraction, retraction or shrinkage of the mesh, possibly requiring surgical intervention
- Mesh implants have high rates of failure, injury and complications; do not work as intended; and have caused severe and irreversible damage, which may include chronic pelvic pain, scarring, organ perforation, inflammation, infection, mesh erosion, nerve damage, and pain during sex
Women who claim they were injured as a result of a defective bladder sling or mesh are seeking compensation for losses including, but not limited to, loss of enjoyment of life, current and future medical costs, disability, pain and suffering, and loss of marital relations.
