Much attention has been given to the legal rights of those who experienced side effects after receiving a transvaginal mesh implant to pursue legal action for their side effects. However, the same legal help is also available to those who are having complications after undergoing a bladder sling procedure.
A bladder sling is another term for the implantation of a mesh device to repair a prolapsed bladder. When a bladder sling is installed through a transvaginal surgery, patients have an increased risk of severe complications.
In July 2011, the FDA warned that patients undergoing bladder prolapse repairs with transvaginal bladder slings could face serious side effects, although the procedure offered no benefit over other methods.
Studies have also shown that more than 15% of those who receive transvaginal mesh bladder slings can experience problems such as bleeding, infection, organ puncture, pain and mesh erosion within 3 months of surgery.
Many of the women who have suffered bladder sling mesh side effects have had to endure several painful follow-up surgeries to remove the device, repair damage, and attempt to fix the original bladder prolapse problem.
If you are one of the tens of thousands of women who have experienced pain or side effects after receiving a transvaginal bladder sling mesh, it is important to know that expert legal help is available.
