Vaginal Mesh Lawsuit
The law firm of Davis & Crump is aggressively investigating cases involving women who have suffered severe complications as a result of the Pelvic Floor Repair Systems, and related mesh products.
These are medical devices commonly referred to as pelvic or vaginal mesh and bladder slings, which are used in the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). These medical devices are made of polypropylene mesh.
Our investigation has confirmed that the mesh products have not met reasonable safety standards. In October of 2008 and February of 2009, the FDA issued Public Health Notifications concerning the use of mesh products in treatment of stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. After receiving over 1,000 reports and complaints, the FDA warned of serious complications resulting from the placement of surgical mesh products.
Our investigation demonstrates that the manufactures did not adequately disclose and warn of the significant risks of these products in their patient literature, patient brochures, and websites. These inadequacies deprived women of the opportunity to make informed choices as to how they wanted their treatable medical conditions to be repaired – and led them to choose to have pelvic mesh permanently attached to the inside of their pelvis – often with catastrophic results.
Complications with Vaginal Mesh and Bladder Sling Surgery
The most frequent complications from these transvaginal mesh products include:
- mesh erosion into the vagina, bladder, intestines and uterus
- mesh shrinkage or migration
- scar tissue formation
- granuloma formation
- pelvic pain
- urinary incontinence and development of urinary retention
- dysuria (painful urination)
- dyspareunia (pain with sexual relations)
- neuropathic pain
- recurrence of prolapsed organs
These complications have led to vaginal scarring and medical conditions that have significantly decreased the quality of life many patients once enjoyed.
The failure of mesh products can also lead to the need for multiple operations to remove the mesh and to repair extensive damage caused by the mesh. In many cases the mesh cannot be completely removed, permanently compromising a woman’s health.
