Vaginal Mesh Side Effects and Vaginal Mesh Claims

If you need information about vaginal mesh side effects and if you wish to find legal support to help file a vaginal mesh claim, you have come to the right place. Our personal injury lawyers are highly experienced and thoroughly informed about the subject of vaginal mesh claims and we recommend that you contact us directly without further delay.

When the FDA first noted problems with vaginal mesh surgery procedures, these problems were described as being rare, but not anymore. Things have changed and now the FDA is stating that the use of vaginal mesh to treat patients with pelvic organ prolapse might expose those patients to greater health risks; the FDA is stating that vaginal mesh side effects can be serious and that they are becoming more and more common.

What kind of vaginal mesh side effects are patients experiencing?
Vaginal mesh side effects after pelvic organ prolapse surgery can take a variety of different forms.

Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is a female health issue that develops when the internal structures supporting the pelvic organs, including the bladder, the uterus and the bowel, become so weak that they fall from their normal positioning. POP is not life-threatening, but it is incredibly uncomfortable, sex life is for obvious reasons affected and the patient can also develop urinary problems in some cases too.

In most cases, POP can be treated without the use of a vaginal mesh implant, but the mesh system has become widely used in recent years and now it is clear that the procedure can have some dangerous side effects for the patients involved.

The personal injury lawyers who work for Ketchmark and McCreight, P.C. are well aware of the fact that approximately 75,000 out of the 100,000 POP surgical repairs that were conducted in 2010 (because patients were suffering from complications after surgery) were repairs that had to be conducted because of problems caused by a vaginal mesh implant.

What information has the FDA received regarding vaginal mesh side effects?
The FDA has received close to 2,874 reports of vaginal mesh side effects and problems at the time of writing. The most common side effects that women have reported include the following:

  • Vaginal mesh erosion
  • Pain, particularly during sexual intercourse, which can have devastating emotional effects on your life on top of the obvious health issues that you might be suffering from
  • Infections, which can sometimes be deadly if not caught in time and treated well
  • Vaginal bleeding or abnormal discharge
  • In some severe cases, the pelvic organ prolapse can reoccur, deeming the entire vaginal mesh implant procedure entirely worthless
  • Incontinence, which can again cause emotional scarring as well as obvious physical problems that patients have to endure
  • Vaginal wall scarring or shrinkage

What should you do if you are suffering from vaginal mesh side effects?
If you are suffering from vaginal mesh side effects, like some of those listed above, the first thing that you must do is contact a medical professional and organize an analysis of your health situation as most of the vaginal mesh side effects require additional surgery to rectify the problems.

However, as these additional surgical procedures and the extra medical care / advice that you require is likely to be very costly, we also suggest that you make contact with the personal injury lawyers at Ketchmark and McCreight, P.C. as well.

Our lawyers might be able to help you receive compensation by filing a vaginal mesh claim which can then help to cover the costs of the medical care and surgical procedures that you might need to go through.

No guarantees can be made. It might be that our lawyers are unable to help you file a vaginal mesh claim if your case is not strong enough to tale to court, but it is still absolutely essential that you contact our vaginal mesh claim lawyers at Ketchmark and McCreight, P.C. to find out exactly what kinds of options are available to you as soon as possible.

Information about Bard Avaulta vaginal mesh claims: A Close-Up
When focusing specifically on the vaginal mesh claims related to the Bard Avaulta vaginal mesh implants in particular, the typical serious side effects that you might be suffering from are as follows:

1. Infection

7. Injury to nearby organs
8. Problems with maintaining a healthy and enjoyable sex life

The main problem with the Bard Avaulta vaginal mesh is that it is designed to allow tissue infiltration. This means that it is very dangerous and complicated to remove. Therefore, further life-changing complications from Bard Avaulta vaginal mesh removal can develop with corrective surgery that goes wrong because the corrective surgery is a very complicated procedure which can give a patient further health problems to deal with as these problems can be irreversible.

For example, the Bard Avaulta vaginal mesh can cause permanent disfigurement, hemorrhage and other potentially life-threatening problems. The complete and total removal of the Bard Avaulta vaginal mesh is so complicated that it requires multiple surgery procedures and can end in the scarring of pelvic tissue and muscles.
