FDA Calls for Further Analysis of TVM Products

Posted in Vaginal Mesh

With the increased use of transvaginal mesh kits in the repair of pelvic organ prolapse, there has been a rising controversy to the safety of such products.  It is often observed that the these relatively-new products are not properly tested to determine their safety, and with the ever increasing number of new versions of transvaginal mesh, this problem has become ever-more important.

A recent article in the New York Times confirms this observation as it discussed the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s order for surgical mesh makers to conduct studies to determine the risks of mesh in surgical repair.  The article states that a host of complications have been reported as being connected to the use of transvaginal mesh kits that were not thoroughly tested in an objective laboratory setting.  The nature of these complications can range from ones as simple as unexpected light bleeding at one end of the spectrum, to serious infections as well as a recurrence of pelvic organ prolapse at the other.  The FDA reports that too often, it is the case that these products fall under a class of implantable devices that do not have to be as stringently evaluated in order to be used on patients, often times including a lack of follow up study to determine the long-term effects and success rate of commercial transvaginal mesh kits.

If you have experienced any adverse effects after having a transvaginal mesh kit surgically implanted, it may be due to the lack of scientific knowledge concerning the safety of the product.  You may be eligible for a transvaginal lawsuit, and I have the experience, resources, and skills required to ensure that you receive the justice you deserve.  Please contact me for a no-obligations, free consultation.
