What is Pelvic Mesh and why is it potentially dangerous? Pelvic Mesh or trans-vaginal Mesh is a surgically device commonly used to treat Pelvic Organ Prolapse or Stress Urinary Incontinence. Most of these common gynecological problems are caused by aging, obesity or childbirth. In recent years, the FDA has reported new complications from some pelvic mesh products. Many women just like you have been faced with the choice to live these problems or move forward with a corrective surgery. In some cases, it may take multiple surgeries to correct the problems that the defective device has caused.
Have you or a loved one suffered from a failed pelvic mesh surgery?
In July 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued warnings regarding the safety of pelvic mesh implants – reporting that 4,000 reports of complications had been recorded in the last six years. Women who have a mesh implant often believe that the pain and symptoms they experience are natural reactions to surgery – this is not always the case. Over 70,000 cases have been filed against the manufacturers of these devices. Our team can help determine if you may be entitled to compensation.
