Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit

It seems like there are many mesh lawsuits occurring at the same time. How can one find an affordable lawyer in South Florida for representation? What is a transvaginal mesh lawsuit all about?

Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit

Women who suffer from pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or stress urinary incontinence (SUI) might have transvaginal mesh (or bladder slings) implanted. These might be made of synthetic or natural fibers. The primary purpose of this vaginal mesh is to repair damaged tissue. The mesh is designed to promote the growth of healthy cells. On average, 100,000 vaginal mesh procedures are performed annually. The FDA has taken action in response to the higher than normal failure rate of these surgical mesh products.  At least 10 deaths have been documented related to complications from this medical device failure. What are some of the symptoms associated with transvaginal mesh failure?

Transvaginal Mesh Symptoms

The implanted synthetic vaginal mesh product might have sharp edges that can puncture tissue or organs (i.e. bladder, uterus or bowels). There are a number of problems listed in transvaginal mesh lawsuit settlements, including but not limited to the following: migration, organ puncturing and infections. How does transvaginal mesh failure harm the victim? Victims might suffer from back pain, immobility, inability to walk, urinary tract infection (UTI), incontinence and in extreme cases, wrongful death. Many times, victims will develop other problems due to the complications associated with transvaginal mesh failure. If you are suffering from any of these symptoms, you might be able to join a transvaginal mesh class action lawsuit.
