Women’s bodies go through many different changes and challenges during an average lifetime, and experiences that include childbirth can leave behind a risk of certain common health problems that include pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Each of these problems can lead to additional, more serious problems, and in recent years several companies have formulated products designed to help women manage and correct these problems.
One type of product that has become extremely prevalent is known as a trans-vaginal mesh product. These products are designed to help correct the structural problems that lead to the health conditions above, but unfortunately reports of defective trans-vaginal mesh products have been on the rise. If you or someone you love has been harmed in this manner, seek the help of experienced trans-vaginal mesh lawyers as soon as possible. Below is a brief overview of this legal issue.
Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI) are two common conditions that affect the lower abdominal area of a woman’s body. Basically, these conditions relate to a change in the structure of internal organs in that area, and they can lead to pain, infections and ultimately the need for corrective surgery if the problems persist.
Trans-vaginal mesh products are designed to be surgically implanted in that area to correct those structural problems. These products are supposed to bring the internal organs back into place by basically holding them in their proper locations as a net or some other type of brace would do. Over time, this internal aid was supposed to bring the internal structure of the woman’s body back to its proper state.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t long before reports of serious trans-vaginal mesh defects began to arise, and these defects led to serious harm in many different patients. The most commonly alleged trans-vaginal mesh defect involved the assertion that these products would deteriorate in terms of their structural integrity once they were inside a woman’s body. The FDA has stated that it received nearly 3,000 reports of trans-vaginal mesh defects in a three-year period between 2008 and 2010.
In addition, the most common results of these allegedly defective trans-vaginal mesh products were diagnoses that included bladder obstructions, serious infections and chronic, debilitating pain. Many of the women who encountered these trans-vaginal mesh side effects needed additional surgery to protect the problems they endured.
If you or someone you love has trusted a trans-vaginal mesh product to help with your health problems that include POP or SUI and you’ve been harmed as a result, you need to seek the help of experienced trans-vaginal mesh lawyers who have been fighting for the rights of consumers for many years.
