Following a recent FDA warning, hundreds of thousands of women who underwent vaginal mesh implant surgeries to repair pelvic organ prolapse could face complications like mesh erosion.
Approximately one in ten women will experience conditions like pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence after childbirth, in which weakened or stretched pelvic muscles allow the bladder, urethra, intestines or other organs to drop into the pelvic cavity.
At the urging of medical device companies, doctors have used mesh implants in nearly 300,000 surgeries over the past decade to repair POP. When the device is installed through the vaginal wall, severe complications can arise.
According to some studies, more than 15% of women who received these implants experienced a serious complication like vaginal mesh erosion within 3 months of the time of their surgery.
When mesh erosion takes place, the dangerous implant device actually wears through the upper vaginal wall tissue and can penetrate into the vagina. This can cause pain, internal bleeding, infection, vaginal bulging and discomfort during intercourse.
Lawyers are currently filing claims on behalf of those women who suffered side effects like mesh erosion from defective mesh implants. These lawyers have recovered millions for the victims and are available to discuss your case today.
