For many women, pelvic organ prolapse, the medical condition in which the muscles of a woman’s "pelvic floor" weakens because of age or trauma, is a common and uncomfortable medical issue. Women who are diagnosed with the condition must deal with embarrassing side effects that occur when organs such as the bladder, uterus and small bowels drop into the vagina.
Although there are several procedures that can either help alleviate or altogether get rid of the problem, one particular procedure has recently caused numerous issues for an increasing number of women. This procedure includes the use of transvaginal mesh inserts in an attempt to correct the problem. And while many women do not have problems with the mesh, many unfortunately do. The mesh can erode, degrade, or become exposed, which can cause pelvin pain, incontinence, and pain during sexual intercourse. A supposedly helpful procedure can make a women’s quality of life much worse than before.
In May, Edno International Plc was made to pay $830 million to resolve approximately 20,000 lawsuits related to the usage of its vaginal-mesh implants that had eroded. Prior to the settlement, the FDA had stated that all mesh inserts should undergo stricter safety requirements because of their high-risk nature.
The complications caused by this device have left many women to suffer with horrid recoveries, large medical bills, lost wages, and ongoing pain. From a civil standpoint, our firm has represented numerous families who are the victims of the complications from the transvaginal mesh device. If you or a loved one has experienced any of these problems because of an implanted or removed transvaginal mesh, we encourage you to consult with one of our transvaginal mesh attorneys as soon as possible. A successful civil claim pursued against the responsible party will help compensate the victims for the costly medical expenses, and hopefully for their pain, suffering, and lost wages for time missed from work.
