The Hidden Truth Behind Transvaginal Mesh
We are handling cases involving surgical mesh products. Vaginal mesh implants are manufactured by American Medical Systems, Boston Scientific, Caldera and Johnson & Johnson. There is federal multidistrict litigation in the Southern District of West Virginia, and consolidated state court litigation in Atlantic County, N.J. Over 4,000 adverse events have been reported from vaginal mesh used to repair pelvic organ prolapse. Among other reasons, the implants are defective because polypropylene should not be used in pelvic repair. We are continuing to investigate cases involving clients who were implanted with transvaginal mesh or a bladder sling device and suffered serious adverse events. Reports of injury include:
- mesh erosion through the vagina
- infection and bleeding
- pain during sexual intercourse
- organ perforation
- urinary problems
- heart attacks
Surgeries are frequently done when not necessary. Procedures are done blinded, with no way for a doctor to visualize its insertion. This is a design flaw. Mesh degradation is known in the medical literature since 1976, but defendants ignored the science. Doctors were routinely misinformed about a long history of safety of mesh.
