While many have seen commercials advising of vaginal mesh implant side effects most people don’t know that the FDA has issued two warnings about these devices and several studies have identified serious post-surgical complications.
Some of the most dangerous problems include punctures or perforations to the bladder, bowels or other organs in the pelvis from sharp edges of defective mesh devices. Such injuries can cause internal bleeding, infection and the need for several follow up surgeries.
On July 13, 2011, the FDA issued its second warning about the risk of using transvaginal mesh implants for pelvic organ prolapse repair, bladder sling and stress urinary incontinence surgeries.
The warning came after the agency received more than 4,000 reports of mesh complications and several independent studies found that as many as 15% of patients receiving the devices could experience severe side effects like organ puncture.
Women who are experiencing mesh implant complications like organ punctures are reporting pain, discomfort, bulging, mesh erosion through tissue and even pain during intercourse.
Since nearly 300,000 women have received a transvaginal mesh implant to repair pelvic organ prolapse, experts fear that thousands of women may have suffered injury from the defective devices.
Lawyers are currently helping those women who suffered injuries like organ puncture from defective mesh implants recover for their pain, damages and medical treatment. They have recovered millions for victims so far and are available to discuss your case today.
