Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit

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.
