Women not just across the country but globally are experiencing serious vaginal mesh complications which can cause significant pain and damage to the pelvic organs. Many such victims are taking legal action against the mesh makers who failed to inform them about the potential risks associated with these implants.
The FDA soon issued a warning about the use of the transvaginal surgical meshes to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and urinary leakage (SUI), noting that thousands of women have reported about the adversities linked with the implant such as organ perforation, chronic pain, bleeding, severe infection, and urinary incontinence.
Overview of vaginal mesh lawsuits
Attorneys across the country have filed transvaginal mesh lawsuit against vaginal mesh manufacturers stating how the plaintiffs had to undergo surgeries to remove the eroded mesh particles. They focus on the complications which cause pain, infection, incontinence and other urinary problems. The vast majority of the lawsuits have been filed against two major mesh manufacturers of vaginal mesh products: C.R. Bard and Ethicon, a Johnson & Johnson’s subsidiary.
Complications involved in mesh lawsuits
Hundreds of lawsuits assert that the major brands of transvaginal mesh can cause pelvic injuries and other complications such as:
- The mesh eroding into vaginal tissue
- Exposure of the mesh
- Bladder or bowels punctures
- Chronic infections
- Pelvic organ prolapse recurring
- Painful intercourse
- Mesh contraction, causing tightening and pain
In 2012, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ordered J&J, C.R. Bard, Boston Scientific and other TVM manufacturers to conduct research of the complications in the wake of the initial round of lawsuits. Until recently, the agency has also taken steps to tighten the regulations and have classified these implants as “higher-risk” products. The FDA now requires the makers of pelvic mesh to present new applications highlighting the effectiveness and safety of their products.
