Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach Offices serving all of Florida
In recent years, a number of vaginal mesh products have entered the market as a solution for treating such conditions as pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The purpose of the mesh is to hold the pelvic organs, such as the bladder and uterus, in place when the abdominal muscles that normally serve that purpose are no longer able to do so.
Numerous issues have come to light since the use of transvaginal mesh began, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration even went as far as issuing a safety communication in 2008 about the risks associated with its use. Call (561) 845-2510 for an appointment with our Florida medical defect law firm.
This Product Has Injured Thousands Of People Causing Severe Pain, Organ Perforation, Infection And Long-Term Health Problems
Among the complications that have been associated with transvaginal mesh are pain, infection, erosion of the mesh, recurrence of organ prolapse, perforations of the blood vessels, bladder or bowels and others. In addition, some patients have needed additional surgery to remove the mesh.
The manufacturers of the mesh can be held accountable for the injuries caused by their products. These are complex cases that require the attention of a skilled Fort Lauderdale transvaginal mesh lawyer with the ability to take on big businesses and secure the compensation you deserve.
