As nearly 1 in 10 of all women who experience pelvic organ prolapse, numerous efforts have been made to treat its symptoms.  The use of transvaginal mesh has grown substantially in its clinical popularity, leading to its being the preferred method for surgical treatment of pelvic organ prolapse.  However, it has been noted that a range of transvaginal mesh lawsuits have been filed because of the commonality of complications that arise due to the lack of postoperative research conducted to confirm mesh devices’ safety and efficacy.

A current study has given cause to further controversy involving the efficacy of transvaginal mesh kits.  This study, titled “Mesh Kits for Anterior Vaginal Prolapse are Not Cost Effective,” was conducted by Sunshine Murray, et. al. and focused on the observable economic faults of using transvaginal mesh in patients.  The article, published in Int. Urogynecol J., summarized, “Mesh kits for AVP(Anterior vaginal prolapse) repair are not cost effective, regardless of the OR (operating room) time saved.” (emphasis added)

This indicates that while other methods for anterior vaginal prolapse have been seen as comparable safe and effective, the cost of using methods involving mesh kits are significantly more expensive for the patient.

If you have been given a synthetic mesh device for the repair of AVP then you could quite possibly have been subject to an unnecessary financial burden because of the use of a cost-ineffective medical device.  You may be eligible to file a transvaginal mesh lawsuit and win the justice you deserve for being subject to undue suffering.

Vaginal mesh devices have recently been used to vaginal wall prolapse and incontinence in women, but unfortunately they have been proven to be problematic in a number of ways.  Legal issues have been arising as treatment involving the surgical use of vaginal mesh kits have led to complications related to both abnormal injury and inadequate informed consent.  Recent clinical focus has been concerned with understanding why vaginal mesh devices lead to medical complications and how to make changes to improve their safety and efficacy.

A recent study conducted by Patrick Nosti and Cheryl Iglesia in Clinical Obstetrics summarizes the current legal issues and why they have followed from the surgical use of transvaginal mesh.  In their article, titled, “Medicolegal Issues Surrounding Devices and Mesh for Surgical Treatment of Prolapse and Incontinence,” their research suggests that there has only been a limited amount of research done to verify that mesh kits are both safe and effective.  They report, “Although vaginal mesh devices are currently cleared through the 510(k) process, new development at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration requiring additional postmarket studies (522 studies) for transvaginal mesh for prolapse and mini suburethral synthetic slings has been issue to ensure product safety and effectiveness.”

This research suggests that there is a lack in conformational data to suggest the long term effects and potential complications involving the use of transvaginal mesh.  If you or any loved ones have suffered from the adverse effects of synthetic mesh devices for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse or incontinence, then it may be the result of the lack of postoperative research conducted to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the vaginal mesh devices used.  You may be entitled to compensation for your suffering.  Please contact our law offices for a free consultation to determine if you are eligible for a vaginal mesh lawsuit.

Urinary incontinence plagues people all over the world, leading to experiences of discomfort and stress.  Midurethral mesh slings are now the most popular method for surgically alleviating urinary incontinence.  These mesh slings are the very same synthetic meshes that are used in pelvic floor reconstruction following pelvic organ prolapse.  In recent years, the difference between the efficacy and safety of synthetic mesh kits has been realized in respect to the surgeries mesh kits are used for.

A recent journal article found in Clinical Obstetrics and Gynecology, entitled, “Indications, Contraindications, and Complications of Mesh in the Surgical Treatment of Urinary Incontinence,” focused on the efficacy and safety of mesh kits used for the treatment of urinary incontinence.  Anna Kirby and Charles Nager reported in the article that, “Unlike transvaginal mesh for prolapse, complications related to mesh midurethral slings are low and less than the complication rates with previous traditional continence surgeries.  Given their safety profile and efficacy, full-length mesh midurethral slings have been rapidly adopted and remain the current standard of care for stress urinary incontinence surgical treatment.”  In other words, their report summarizes a problem that has currently given rise to a number of complications involving synthetic meshes: the safety and efficacy of synthetic mesh in surgical treatment for urinary incontinence has helped the swing of momentum for the use of synthetic mesh in the surgical treatment of prolapsed pelvic organs.

Given the research involving synthetic mesh for the treatment of urinary incontinence, medical professionals are more likely inclined to use synthetic mesh kits in the treatment of other ailments, namely of pelvic organ prolapse.  However, numerous transvaginal mesh lawsuits have arisen because of the lack of clinical research done confirming the safety and efficacy of synthetic mesh products.

The fact remains that while synthetic mesh has proven to be a safe and fairly effective product for the surgical treatment of urinary incontinence, the use of synthetic mesh in the treatment of prolapsed pelvic organs is considered to be unsafe and not entirely effective.  If you have experienced the adverse effects of synthetic mesh following pelvic organ prolapse surgery, then you may be the victim of a dangerous product not yet proven to be safe for patient use.  Please contact our law offices to complete a free, no-obligation case consultation to determine if you are eligible for a transvaginal mesh lawsuit.

Because nearly one tenth of all women worldwide experience pelvic organ prolapse (POP) during their lives, many top medical professionals today strive to develop treatment more reliable than transvaginal mesh (TVM), a treatment option associated with a high rate of failure and complications of vaginal mesh.

A current study titled, “Indications, Contraindications, and Complications of Mesh in Surgical Treatment of Pelvic Organ Prolapse,” turned its focus towards the alarming increase in patients who require a second surgical repair because of a recurrence of POP after TVM use.  David Ellington and his partner Holly Richter in their 2013 Clinical Obstetrics and Gynecology article studied the potential benefits and risks of using transvaginal mesh kits to try to lower the risk of reoccurrence of the original symptoms in patients.  They determined that while clinical research is starting to become more important in the eyes of federal regulators, the situation still lies where, “physicians need to continue to review the literature, report their own outcomes, and educate patients regarding new outcome date, complications, and recommendations, from national organizations in women’s health regarding prolapse repair.”

While this summary is encouraging as it indicates that efforts are starting to be made towards informing patients as thoroughly as possible of the risks associated with TVM, the fact still remains that numerous incidents have occurred involving the contraindications of transvaginal mesh kits, prompting a large number of transvaginal mesh lawsuits to be filed.  Many TVM lawsuits are filed because of the expensive and often times painful additional surgeries required to correct the complications caused by transvaginal mesh.

If you have required surgery to repair the damage caused by the use of transvaginal mesh, you may be eligible for a transvaginal mesh lawsuit and we encourage you to contact our offices to receive a free consultation.

The use of transvaginal mesh kits in pelvic floor reconstruction surgery has begun to be questioned clinically as the number of cases of complications and adverse effects has steadily risen.  The  complications can lead to pain for not only the patient but for their significant others during intercourse, often times leading patients to require further corrective surgery.  Recently, a new complication has been reported by numerous patients, involving the erosion of the tissue surrounding synthetic mesh inside the patient’s body.

A recent study titled, “Diagnosis, Management and Prognosis of Vaginal Erosion after Transobturator Suburethral Tape Procedure Using a Nonwoven Thermally Bonded Polypropylene Mesh,” conducted by Domingo, et. al., focused efforts on understanding the possible outcomes of the erosion of the vagina following transvaginal mesh within patients.  The article, as seen in The Journal of Urology aimed at studying transvaginal mesh erosion in patients undergoing surgery to treat urinary incontinence in women.  They reported that, “of the 65 patients 9 (13.8%) were diagnosed with vaginal erosion at the vaginal incision during a relatively long postoperative period (mean 290 days). All presented with vaginal discharge and 1 had a severe complication (obturator abscess). Complete mesh removal was necessary in 8 patients and only 2 (22%) had recurrent stress urinary incontinence.”

Thers results confirm the current suspicions surrounding the use of transvaginal mesh in patients, as the study reports serious complications as well as failures that end in recurrent symptoms.  This study, along with others, has shown that numerous patients have become victims of the dangerous transvaginal mesh products currently in clinical use.

If you or a loved one has suffered from any complications following surgery involving transvaginal mesh kits, you may be eligible for a transvaginal mesh lawsuit.  Our lawyers want to offer you a free, no-obligations consultation to help you receive compensation for the suffering you have endured.

Currently, synthetic mesh kits are being more commonly used in reparatory surgery for prolapsed pelvic organs.  However, as stated by Lawrence Lin, et. al., in a recent article titled, “Dyspareunia and Chronic Pelvic Pain after Polypropylene Mesh Augmentation for Transvaginal Repair of Anterior Vaginal Wall Prolapse,” there seems to be no clinical research on the safety of such kits.  The researchers state, “There is a growing use of synthetic mesh placement in the vagina without sufficient evidence of clinical studies on patient safety for these procedures.”

Lin and his team focused on the fact that there is very little attention paid towards transvaginal mesh kits in their postoperative complications.  The study summarized the experience of a patient, whom after receiving a synthetic mesh kit for anterior prolapsed pelvic organ repair, suffered from extreme dyspareunia and debilitating pelvic pain.  The patient, after being surgically implanted with transvaginal mesh experienced pain and discomfort postoperatively, failed to have a positive response from medical therapy, eventually leading to further surgery to remove the mesh kit.

Cases similar to this patient’s have emerged in alarming numbers, with patients reporting similar complications and often times requiring further surgery to repair the damage caused by transvaginal mesh kits.  If you or a loved one has experienced any sort of complication following surgery involving transvaginal mesh kits, then it may be the result of the lack of clinical research done on that product’s safety and efficacy; you may be entitled to compensation for the suffering you have endured.

The use of transvaginal mesh kits has grown substantially in recent years as new products are being designed constantly.  However, numerous transvaginal mesh lawsuits have emerged because of the inconsistent success rates offered by the field of different transvaginal mesh products.  Lawsuits have not only emerged because of unsuccessful procedures involving transvaginal mesh kits, but because of the high number of complications that occur, often times leading patients into experiences of severe pain and discomfort.

In a recent study in Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery, an article titled “Elevate Anterior/Apical: 12-month Data Showing Safety and Efficacy in Surgical Treatment of Pelvic Organ Prolapse,” focused on the possible repercussions of transvaginal mesh in reparatory surgery.  Edward Standford and his team focused on the possible outcomes of using transvaginal mesh kits in the surgical repair of prolapsed pelvic organs one year after surgery.  They listed a fairly high success rate but noted a range of complications that occurred in numerous subjects.  These complications included but were not limited to: “…mesh exposure, urinary tract infections, transient buttock pain, de novo stress incontinence, retention, dyspareunia, and hematoma,” each of which cause significant stress in patients’ lives.

Though transvaginal mesh kits have gained popularity in clinical use, they have brought with them a host of TVM complications, that when objectively studied, have shown to prove that transvaginal mesh kits are being seen as less and less of a viable and safe method for the repair of prolapsed pelvic organs.

If you have experienced any of the listed adverse effects of transvaginal mesh following reparatory surgery, then you may be one of the many victims of an unsafe and ineffective medical device, transvaginal mesh.  Contact our offices and let us provide you with the representation you need to win the justice you deserve for your suffering.

With the current controversy surrounding the use of transvaginal mesh kits for the reparatory surgery of prolapsed pelvic organs, alternatives methods are constantly being explored.  Recently, polypropylene slings have been used instead of more traditional transvaginal mesh kits using other synthetic bases for their designs, utilizing a tension-free sling that is aimed at causing fewer complications than previous products.  A recent study conducted by Katlheen Kobashi and Fred Govier aimed at examining the possible complications that could occur due to the use of polypropylene slings for the repair of prolapsed pelvic organs.

Their study reported that, “two patients described persistent vaginal discharge 6 weeks postoperatively, including 1 who complained primarily of partner discomfort during sexual intercourse. Two patients were completely asymptomatic and mesh erosion was discovered at routine physical examination 6 weeks postoperatively.  Pelvic examination demonstrated vaginal exposure of the mesh in all cases.”  These results indicate that while some complications are obvious as it causes discomfort and physiological symptoms easily identified by doctors during examination, some complications go unnoticed for a significant time before they are discovered.

According to this research, polypropylene slings have similar adverse effects to that of other tested methods for correcting prolapsed pelvic organs, resulting in minor to serious complications.  These complications can lead to unnecessary pain and discomfort for patients.

If you or a loved one used transvaginal mesh and experienced the side-effects described above, or another complication of transvaginal mesh, you may be entitled to significant financial compensation for your injuries through a transvaginal mesh lawsuit.

The use of transvaginal mesh in the surgical repair of pelvic organ prolapse has recently led to a large number of transvaginal mesh lawsuits as a result of the inconsistent success rates and the numerous complications associated with these methods.  The controversy has mainly stemmed from the lack of clinical research done to prove the safety of the constantly changing updated version of the transvaginal mesh kit products, produced by a host of companies worldwide.    However, a new concern has arisen for clinical scientists investigating the safety of transvaginal mesh kits: the effect of their use on the female sexual function.

A current study conducted by Chiu-Lin Wang, et. al. evaluated the short-term impact of surgical repair with total transvaginal mesh (TVM) on sexual function among women with pelvic organ prolapse.  After testing a range of patients with preoperative and postoperative questionnaires, Wang and colleagues determined that scores for dyspareunia and the lubrication domains of the female sexual function index were significantly lower following reparatory surgery involving transvaginal mesh.  The study reported that that two-thirds of TVM patients had a significantly lower female sexual function index scores postoperatively, indicating that the unwanted effects of transvaginal mesh were highly prevalent for patients.

Corrective surgery to fix prolapsed pelvic organ tissue is aimed at allowing patients to return to the physical normalcy, without pain and without discomfort.  The use of transvaginal mesh kits has been heavily questioned because of how little research has been done to prove their safety, but now research has started to indicate that these devices have been seen to cause further complications, now affecting the sexual functioning of patients.  If you have experienced any sort of postoperative discomfort, pain, or abnormalities following prolapsed pelvic organ surgery involving transvaginal mesh, then you may be the victim of a dangerous product, unfit for clinical use.

Pelvic organ prolapse is a condition which has been swarmed with controversy as all reparatory methods haven’t led to a sufficiently-high success rate to allow for continued use.  As medical science advances, there have been a range of methods for attempting to solve the issues caused by pelvic organ prolapse, and currently, the use of transvaginal mesh kits tends to be the most popular approach to the surgical repair of anterior vaginal wall prolapse.  However, the use of transvaginal mesh (TVM) has been the cause for numerous transvaginal mesh lawsuits as there have been a range of reported complications due to the unreliable nature of the products released to date.  One study has even shown that the removal of TVM may not alleviate pain associated with a recurrence of pelvic organ prolapse.

The market trend in the medical field is moving towards a constant stream of newly released transvaginal mesh kits, not all of which have been given the proper clinical research before consumer use considering the high number of new products that have been used.  A recent study posed the question of whether or not it was necessary to advance towards the use of transvaginal mesh kits for the repair of pelvic organ prolapse.  Alex Gomelsky and Randy Vince, in their current research study focused on the failure rates for traditional reparatory methods in comparison to the high failure rates seen with procedures involving transvaginal mesh.

Their results indicated that traditional approaches have been seen to have similar failure rates as procedures using transvaginal mesh kits, indicating that there may be no improved efficacy with the use of mesh kits in the repair of pelvic organ prolapse, compared to the use of other surgical methods.  The study gives reason to ask the question as to why transvaginal mesh kits are constantly being chosen as the method of choice for physicians.

The answer is unclear, but with nearly one-third of women who use transvaginal mesh requiring corrective surgery following complications, the consequences of the decision to use transvaginal mesh can be serious and may include unpredicted side-effects.  For more information regarding the unpredicted side effect of the use of transvaginal mesh, follow the link above.

If you have suffered from complications due to the use of transvaginal mesh in your pelvic organ prolapse surgery, it may be because of the lack of clinical research done on the product and you may be entitled to compensation due to the negligence of the company who distributed an unsafe or ineffective product.  Contact my offices and let me represent you in your search for the justice you deserve.
