Transvaginal Mesh Claims

Transvaginal Mesh Claims Attorneys in Virginia

Let Our Virginia Product Liability Lawyers Help You Get Justice

Transvaginal mesh – also known as pelvic mesh, vaginal mesh, and bladder slings – are surgical devices that are implanted through the vagina or abdomen to support tissues in the pelvic floor that have been damaged by injury, childbirth, or surgery. Transvaginal mesh has been used primarily to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP), in which a woman’s bladder or uterus slides out of place, and stress urinary incontinence (SUI), which is an involuntary discharge of urine that most often occurs during physical activity.

Due to an increasing number of health problems linked to transvaginal mesh, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued an advisory regarding the devices. The Virginia product liability attorneys in Virginia at Kalfus & Nachman PC are currently evaluating potential cases from patients who claim to have been harmed by transvaginal mesh.

For a free consultation in Norfolk, Newport News, or Roanoke, please call (855) 880-8163 today.

Transvaginal Mesh Complications

Although transvaginal mesh has shown effective at treating POP and SUI in some patients, an FDA review found that the benefits of transvaginal mesh are outweighed by the risks.

In recent years, the FDA has received more than 3,000 complaints health problems from women who have undergone transvaginal mesh surgery. These complications include:

  • Erosion of the mesh into the vagina
  • Infection
  • Injury to surrounding organs
  • Internal bleeding
  • Pelvic pain
  • Urinary complications
  • Vaginal pain

These side-effects have been tied to transvaginal mesh manufactured by a number of leading medical device companies including:

  • American Medical Systems
  • Boston Scientific
  • C.R. Bard
  • Covidien
  • Ethicon
  • Johnson & Johnson

Understanding Your Rights

The manufacturers of transvaginal mesh and other medical products have a duty to consumers to fully test their products and provide thorough information regarding potential risks and side-effects.

A number of lawsuits are already pending against transvaginal mesh makers, alleging the companies failed to adequately test the devices, failed to warn about possible complications, and exercised negligence in the design of the devices. The product liability attorneys at Kalfus & Nachman PC have decades of experience helping consumers recover the financial compensation they need and deserve for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages.

If you live in the Norfolk, Newport News, Portsmouth or Roanoke, Virginia, areas and you were harmed by transvaginal mesh, please contact a Virginia defective product lawyer at Kalfus & Nachman PC online or by calling (855) 880-8163 to schedule your free consultation.
