Stress Urinary Incontinence is the most common type affecting women and occurs when the muscles around the pelvis and sphincter are weakened or stretched. SUI often affects women who have had multiple pregnancies with vaginal childbirths or have had a hysterectomy.
Although there are a number of treatment options for Stress Urinary Incontinence, recent reports suggest the use of vaginal mesh implants should be avoided.
After an FDA warning this year about the safety risks of using transvaginal mesh devices to repair pelvic organ prolapse, many people are trying to find out whether the mesh implant they received is included in the warning and what legal rights they have for their injuries.
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.
