Bladder Sling Lawsuit 2015
Representing women affected by bladder sling complications following pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or stress urinary incontinence (SUI) surgery and representing patients who have developed problems in filing transvaginal mesh lawsuit claims. Currently cases are being filed individually and no nationwide transvaginal mesh class action lawsuit has been filed.
Recently, the public has become more aware of surgery mesh complications suffered by women after undergoing pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence surgeries using synthetic mesh. This mesh is referred to by various names including: transvaginal mesh, pelvic mesh, surgical mesh and bladder slings.
According the Food and Drug Administration, from January 2008 through December 2010 there were over 2800 Medical Device Reports involving urogynecologic surgery mesh products that were associated with malfunctions, injury or death. Specifically, there were 1,503 reports of complications involving pelvic organ prolapse surgical repair and 1,371 reported that were linked to stress urinary incontinence surgery repair.
According to the FDA, over the last several years the most frequently reported complications caused by bladder sling mesh include:
• Vaginal mesh erosion
• Organ perforation
• Recurrent prolapse
• Neuro-muscular problems
• Vaginal scarring/shrinkage
• Emotional problems
• Urinary problems
Following an extensive review of the scientific literature associated with the safety and effectiveness of implanting surgical mesh products in stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and pelvic organ prolapse procedures, the FDA found that serious complications were not rare, contrary to what was previously believed, and that transvaginal mesh used in POP surgical repairs does not necessarily improve patients outcomes compared to surgical options involving non-mesh surgeries.
