Transvaginal Mesh Attorney in Fort Myers

Representation for the Victims of Surgical Mesh

Transvaginal mesh is a type of surgical mesh that has recently gained popularity among medical professionals who are treating women suffering from pelvic prolapse. The woven-like fabric that is used to alleviate the symptoms of pelvic prolapse and bladder prolapse, however, has proven to be a less-than-safe method of treatment among many women who've suffered seriously adverse side effects from its use.

Well aware of the critical medical conditions that have developed among many users of the transvaginal mesh product, Pittman Law Firm, P.L., is proud to now be taking on clients who've suffered. Each Fort Myers personal injury lawyer on our team is skilled in their practice, and together, we have effectively put a face to every case that we've handled in the 25 years that we've spent representing clients in Florida.

Warnings from the FDA

In July of 2013, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a Safety Communication that specifically discussed the complications that can arise from the use of transvaginal mesh products. The communication was issued as a warning to patients and medical health care professionals alike, including doctors, surgeons, and all other types of medical care providers. Specifically, the warning spoke to the practitioners of gynecology, urology, urogynecology, general surgery, internal medicine, and even family practice.

The reports issued by the FDA in 2011 are not the first of their kind. In fact, a very extensive warning was issued years previously, in 2008, which first introduced the many complications related to the use of transvaginal mesh.

The adversarial list of complications which now signifies what is believed to be the totality of the product's dangers is extensive, with the most frequent complications as follows:

  • Mesh erosion
  • Vaginal shrinkage
  • Vaginal scarring
  • Organ perforation
  • Recurrent prolapse
  • Neuro-muscular problems
  • Emotional problems
  • Urinary problems
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Infection
  • Pain
  • Bleeding

Erosion, Contraction, and Shrinkage

Concurrent with the FDA's warnings are findings that target transvaginal mesh erosion as the most commonly reported complication to stem from the product. The erosion of transvaginal mesh requires multiple surgeries before repair is successful. In fact, in extreme cases, surgery will never be a sufficient means of correcting the damages that were suffered from the complications caused by a transvaginal mesh product.

Newer to the risks identified for transvaginal mesh users is that of contraction. The contraction of transvaginal mesh can result in vaginal shortening, as well as vaginal tightening, both of which can be extremely painful for the women who suffer from them. As a result, the FDA is still actively seeking to learn more about the adversarial consequences of using transvaginal mesh, and until everything about the product is known, it could be an unwise option for women seeking relief from bladder prolapse or pelvic prolapse.

Personal Injury Lawsuits

As the victim of an injury that was caused by transvaginal mesh, you are entitled to take legal action. In fact, to forego this right could cost you significantly. The costly medical bills and expensive recovery surgeries that are connected to transvaginal mesh complications are more than most women can afford. As such, it becomes necessary to legally pursue compensation through the claims-filing process, or through the formal litigation of a lawsuit.

Transvaginal lawsuits specifically target the manufacturers of the product, as well as the companies that ultimately made the decision to market a defective medical device of this sort. In many cases, investigations reveal that the thorough testing required of medical manufacturers before a product is marketed to the public was not properly completed. The legal facets involved in a transvaginal mesh lawsuit are complicated, and unexpected findings often arise throughout the court of a case. Therefore, it is absolutely imperative that you retain the services of a highly experienced attorney who can smartly represent you in court.
