Vaginal Mesh Injury Attorneys
Vaginal mesh is commonly used to treat two conditions: (1) Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) and (2) Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI). Doctors insert mesh through the patient's vagina and then use the mesh to fashion a sling to support internal organs. This procedure is often referred to as "sling surgery".FDA Warnings For Vaginal Mesh
The FDA has issued two warnings about vaginal mesh. The first warning was issued in October of 2008 and the most recent was in July of 2011. In the 2011 warning, the FDA indicated the problems with vaginal mesh are not limited to a single brand. And more importantly, the FDA declared sling surgeries utilizing mesh do "not improve symptomatic results or quality of life over non-traditional repair".Injuries Caused by Vaginal Mesh
Erosion is the most common complication related to vaginal mesh. In simplest terms, the mesh wears through exposing the rough surface of the mesh to the patient and her partner. In addition to the pain, other complications occur with vaginal mesh including bowel perforation, bladder perforation, infection, bleeding, urinary problems, vaginal tightening, blood vessel perforation and others.How to Make a Vaginal Mesh Claim
