Vaginal Mesh Problems? Contact our Lawyers!

The FDA reports that during a three year period it received more than 1000 reports of problems related to vaginal mesh systems, which in turn has created an increase in the amount of personal injury claims that victims need help filing.

Vaginal mesh systems are used to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The problem is that the vaginal mesh systems used to treat sufferers of these medical conditions are not as safe as they were thought to be.

What kind of vaginal mesh problems do people suffer from?
A number of people looking to file personal injury claims related to vaginal mesh problems suffer from the following complaints:

  • Pain
  • Urinary problems
  • Vaginal mesh infection
  • Vaginal scarring
  • Holes developing in the bowel or bladder
  • Vaginal mesh erosion through vaginal skin surfaces
  • Recurrence of incontinence or prolapse

Vaginal Sling Complications in Women: A Close-Up
As soon as the FDA was aware of the dangers of vaginal mesh treatments, those concerns were made public. From this moment on, the number of people who reported that they were suffering from the devastating side effects associated with the use of surgical mesh to repair pelvic organ prolapse began to rise significantly.

In fact, between 2008 and 2010, reports of vaginal mesh problems received by the FDA reached more than 1500. This obvious demand is one of the reasons why the personal injury lawyers spend a lot of time researching into the area of vaginal mesh lawsuits. We want to stay ahead of all developments and new information concerning the subject so that we can provide the best kind of legal support to our clients possible.

In particular, these reports developed by the FDA are used to alert women who are undergoing pelvic organ prolapse surgery to the risk that they are taking. The pelvic organ prolapse surgery involved the surgical placement of a mesh through the vagina. The problem seems to be that passing the mesh through the vagina poses a far greater threat than other kinds of surgical options that are available.

Our lawyers are aware of the fact that in some cases, women who have suffered from pelvic organ prolapse vaginal mesh problems might need to have further surgery to help deal with the terrible side effects that occur from this kind of surgery.

Some women have had to have additional surgery, blood transfusions, IV therapy and even abscess drainage.

The lawyers at Ketchmark and McCreight, P.C. also know from the FDA reports that the size and shape of the vaginal mesh used in the procedure, the vaginal mesh material type, the surgical technique differ greatly. It is important that your lawyer knows these things.

What is important to stipulate quite clearly is that any kind of side effect or problem that you experience from your vaginal mesh surgery should be reported and brought to the attention of the personal injury lawyers at Ketchmark and McCreight, P.C. so that we can assess your case and find out whether or not it will be possible for you to file for compensation of some kind.

It is suspected that a design defect in the Bard Avaulta vaginal mesh is causing complications for women who have been treated using this system.

If you have received the Avaulta vaginal mesh treatment you might be suffering from a lack of healing. If the surrounding tissue of your vaginal mesh implant is not receiving the necessary and essential oxygen and nutrients, your surgery might not be healing properly and you should seek both medical and legal advice immediately.
