Protecting the Rights of Injured Defective Medical Device Victims
Transvaginal mesh surgery is used to help women who are experiencing pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence. While this medical product was supposed to provide relief for patients, instead it has turned into a serious health issue for many women. In 2008, the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) issued a safety alert, warning of the potential dangerous complications of a transvaginal mesh. The safety alert was updated recently in 2011, again alerting consumers about the potential dangerous side effects as well as stating such complications are not rare.
Women who are victims of this defective medical product should not have to suffer anymore. There are legal options available, including filing a product liability lawsuit against manufacturers and distributors. A skilled attorney can help you with your claim.
Manufacturers of transvaginal mesh devices include:
- Johnson & Johnson
- C.R. Bard
- Mentor Corporation
- Boston Scientific
- American Medical Systems
