What is a Prolapse vaginal mesh claim?
Companies which manufacture vaginal meshes, for example Dynacare (Ethicon) Prolift or Bard Avaulta, are under the microscope at present because of the growing concerns surrounding the dangers of using vaginal mesh on a wide range of patients.

Vaginal mesh prolapses are becoming more and more common. At present, it is believed that approximately 30% - 50% of women suffer from a vaginal mesh prolapse at some point in their lives and the manufacturers of the various vaginal meshes available are receiving a huge amount of complaints.

The personal injury lawyers who work for Ketchmark and McCreight, P.C. are fully aware of the entire situation regarding vaginal mesh prolapse due to manufacturing faults. We believe it is our duty to remain as informed as possible when it comes to vaginal mesh prolapse because the dangers of these incidents can be high for any woman.

When explained in simple terms, a vaginal prolapse occurs when the muscles, ligaments and skin around the vagina weaken and sometimes break, resulting in the displacement of all pelvic organs and tissues that were once supported.

When this happens, a synthetic mesh device can be implanted to rectify the situation. Vaginal prolapse mesh manufacturers, including (Ethicon) Prolift and Bard Avaulta, make these kinds of mesh devices and this is where the problems begin.

Over the past few years, the FDA have received no less than 4000 reports from patients which report various health complications which have arisen as a result of the vaginal mesh implants and this is why the lawyers at Ketchmark and McCreight, P.C. spend a great deal of their time filing Prolapse vaginal mesh claims.

Why might you need to file a Prolapse vaginal mesh claim?
The complications that have been reported in the 4000 or so cases received by the FDA so far are varied. They cover a very broad range of issues which s even more cause for concern because it seems that every Prolapse vaginal mesh claim is different to any other before or after it.

Women who file Prolapse vaginal mesh claims suffer from the following problems:

1. Erosion of the mesh implant through the vaginal walls
2. Vaginal pain
3. Pain experienced during sexual intercourse, or in some cases the complete inability to be able to have sexual intercourse at all

If you have had surgery to put a vaginal prolapse mesh implant in place and you are now experiencing health issues as a result (which might be the same or different to those recently listed above) it is vital that you contact the lawyers at Ketchmark and McCreight, P.C. about your situation immediately.

If you don’t contact someone about your situation, not only are you suffering without help and compensation, but you are also allowing the manufacturers of vaginal prolapse mesh devices to continue making these dangerous devices and you are putting other women at risk.

If you are suffering from sexual dysfunction as a result of your vaginal mesh implant that went wrong, your social life and emotional state might be affected on top of your physical difficulties and this can be traumatic to work through for many reasons.

If the manufacturers of your vaginal mesh device failed to create a safe product for you to use, you must report this right away. Some women often confess that they are embarrassed about coming forward about their prolapse vaginal mesh claim because it is a very private matter that they might have to eventually discuss openly during a trial.

However, no matter how embarrassed you might feel, it is clear that you should be compensated for dangerous effects that these mesh devices have had on your body and the experienced personal injury lawyers who work for Ketchmark and McCreight, P.C. are available to lead you through the process with care and understanding.

What kinds of studies into Prolapse vaginal mesh claims and problems have already been conducted?
Due to the important and frightening nature of these claims, a number of studies into the problems associated with prolapse vaginal mesh implants have already been conducted.

The medical malpractice attorneys at Ketchmark and McCreight, P.C. maintain full knowledge of the developments of such studies as part of our promise to look after the best interests of our vaginal mesh prolapse clients.

For example, we know that over 75% of women who undergo surgery for pelvic organ prolapse are postmenopausal. The combination of the changes in a menopausal woman (including estrogen deficiency), coupled with a vaginal mesh implant is what creates changes in vaginal PH, bladder activity and pain during sexual intercourse.

In a recent study conducted by the FDA, 100% of the 69 women tested were sexually active and menopausal. The questionnaire used in the study was designed to evaluate the following:

  • sexual desire
  • sexual arousal
  • lubrication
  • orgasm
  • satisfaction
  • pain

The women were tested before their prolapse vaginal mesh implant and six months afterwards too. The results showed that lubrication and pain had worsened in many cases.

If you are suffering from any of these problems after your prolapse vaginal mesh surgery, you need to find out whether or not you are able to file a prolapse vaginal mesh claim with the help of our lawyers today.
