    Surgical Mesh Recall: F.D.A Issues Safety Advisory

    Transvaginal surgical mesh was used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence in the U.S. since 1996. Mesh, however, first became a focus of personal injury litigation in October 2008 and again in February 2009, when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued Public Health Notifications regarding the use of transvaginal mesh in the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. The notice covers products produced by nine different medical device manufacturers.

    In addition to the initial warnings, the FDA once again revised their safety alert in July 2011, stating that significant health issues have been associated with the use of these tissue repair products (bladder slings, TVT, hernia repair tape, rectal and vaginal floor repairs). This update comes after the FDA has collected thousands of reports and grievances in connection with injuries sustained following their use. The subsequent surgical mesh attorney investigations have led to a number of allegations and thousands of women coming forward with claims against the device.

    The 2011 alert was a much stronger admonition against the use of these devices when compared with the initial 2008 alert. In the three years between the two alerts they have collected nearly 3000 complication claims from patients who have suffered adverse effects. The FDA is now closely monitoring the safety and effectiveness of transvaginal mesh (FDA Alert). It has required manufacturers to conduct extensive investigations into the safety of the product and the possibility of severe health complications.

    Estimates are that surgical mesh was employed in over 100,000 cases in 2010 alone, with 75 percent of these cases involving vaginal implantation. If you suffered complications, you aren't alone. Share what happened to you with our surgical mesh lawyer to learn if you are eligible to add your voice to pending litigation or whether you can file a lawsuit in pursuit of recovery for your suffering.


    Surgical Mesh Complications Symptoms

    Not every patient will experience side effects after having a transvaginal mesh implant. Erosion, organ perforation and other mesh failure complications don't necessarily occur in every patient. That being said, when adverse health problems do occur they can be particularly painful and nasty.

    Some of the documented surgical mesh side effects which may indicate failure can include:

    • excessive bleeding
    • chronic back pain
    • bloating
    • pain during intercourse
    • urinary problems

    The side effects above may indicate:

    • mesh erosion
    • infection
    • organ perforation

    In addition to the side effects, it should be noted that removing implanted mesh can be very difficult as tissue grows around the material in the abdominal wall after it has been implanted - this can lead to treatment requiring multiple revision surgeries.

    The FDA is currently recommending that any person with pelvic organ prolapse or urinary incontinence consult their physician to explore ALL possible treatment options prior to agreeing to a transvaginal patch implant. Ongoing surgical mesh litigation raises very serious concerns and you should consult carefully with your physician to fully understand the potential risks.

    Should you choose to use a mesh repair system, it is crucial that you keep any scheduled post-surgery visits, as well as staying on top of recommended follow up procedures. If you experience any negative side effects, contact your healthcare professional immediately to discuss your concerns.

    If you developed serious complications speak to our product liability lawyers right away, to learn your recovery options under the law.

    Transvaginal Mesh Problems (Stress Urinary Incontinence & Bladder Prolapse)

    Following the growing number of mesh problems brought to light by litigants, how surgical mesh implants came to acquire FDA approval to repair prolapse and stress urinary incontinence in women deserves scrutiny.

    • Because so many new drugs and medical devices are submitted each year for FDA approval, there are many cases where extensive research data is not available prior to approval. Manufacturers can present evidence of similarities in their products to other products which have already been approved for use to get approval for the new products.
    • This process was used to gain approval for surgical mesh products in the treatment of urinary incontinence in 1996, and then later in 2002 to gain approval for the use in the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse (POP). It should also be noted that the FDA has 3 categories of products, with mesh products falling into the Category II classification. As such, they were not subjected to rigorous research and testing prior to approval. This has led to mesh litigators raising concerns about the approval process.
    • You may not have been adequately warned of the very dangerous side effects that are alleged with these products. Our mesh class action lawsuit attorneys are standing-by to help you file your claim, as you may be entitled to significant compensation, money which can help with medical bills and recovery.
