Transvaginal Mesh Complications Plague Thousands of Women
This is Michael Brady Lynch, lead trial attorney for The Michael Brady Lynch Firm.
Almost every day I am asked by a prospective transvaginal mesh client the question, “I don’t know the identity of the manufacturer of my transvaginal mesh, can I still have a lawsuit?” The answer is simple – yes!
First, a little background on transvaginal mesh: Problems with vaginal mesh systems marketed by a number of different medical device manufacturers have caused thousands of women throughout the United States to suffer severe injuries. Due to the risk of vaginal mesh complications, the FDA warned in July 2011 that doctors should recognize that in most cases, pelvic organ prolapse can be treated successfully without a bladder sling or pelvic mesh.
This too-little-too-late warning does nothing for the thousands of women who had a bladder sling or vaginal mesh implanted in recent years. However, an experienced transvaginal mesh attorney can help seek compensation for serious injuries caused by the defective and dangerous design of the pelvic support systems. This compensation may be available not only because these products pose a risk of serious complications, but also importantly because there is no evidence that transvaginal insertion of a bladder sling has any benefit for women when its primary use is treating pelvic organ prolapse.
The experienced transvaginal mesh attorneys at The Michael Brady Lynch Firm will order and review pertinent medical records to ascertain the manufacturer of the vaginal mesh product used in the surgery, which may include a product made by one of the following:
- Bard Avaulta Support System
- AMS Elevate Prolapse Repair System
- AMS Apogee Vault Suspension System
- AMS Perigee System
- AMS Monarc Sling System
- AMS Sparc Sling System
- Ethicon Gynecare Gynemesh
- Ethicon Gynecare Prolene Soft Mesh
- Ethicon Gynecare Prolift Pelvic Floor Repair System
- Ethicon Gynecare TVT Transvaginal Sling
- Boston Scientific Pinnacle Pelvic Floor Repair Kit
- Boston Scientific Uphold Vaginal Support System
- UGYTEX Dual Knit Mesh
- Coviden IVS Tunneler Sling
Regardless of the manufacturer, the transvaginal mesh lawyers at The Michael Brady Lynch Firm are investigating potential claims for women who have received any type of surgical mesh or bladder sling to repair pelvic organ prolapse.
