Our Michigan transvaginal mesh lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. represent woman who have suffered from transvaginal mesh erosion or other serious complications resulting from a vaginal mesh.
Vaginal meshes were designed to treat woman with Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP), however according to the FDA, the transvaginal placement of the surgical mesh may put woman at a greater risk for POP mesh complications than other surgical options.
What is Transvaginal Mesh Erosion?
After a woman undergoes a POP repair surgery using a transvaginal mesh, she may experience transvaginal mesh erosion. This is unfortunately a common complication from the mesh, and can cause severe and intense pain for patients suffering from it. It occurs when the mesh device gradually moves through the vaginal wall and sometimes into surrounding organs.
Erosion can occur for various reasons, however one of the most common reasons it can occur is due to the fact that the vaginal mesh device is defective. Patients who suffer serious complications from a transvaginal mesh, including mesh erosion, due to the fact that device was defective do have legal rights and may be able to pursue a lawsuit against the manufacturer.
Reactions From Transvaginal Mesh Erosion
Some of the most common reactions associated with transvaginal mesh erosion include:
- Persistent pain
- Damage to bladder and/or bowel
- Recto-vaginal fistula
- Abscess – pus filled sore
Sue For Transvaginal Mesh Erosion After POP Surgery
Patients suffering from transvaginal mesh erosion after undergoing a Pelvic Organ Prolapse surgery do have legal rights and may be able to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer of the mesh medical product. Some of the most common manufacturer’s include C.R. Bard’s Avaulta, Ethicon’s Gynecare, American Medical Systems, Boston Scientific Scimmed’s Pinnacle pelvic mesh and more. In fact, due to the fact that the FDA released a warning in 2008 about the problem’s associated with transvaginal mesh, and the failure of the medical device manufacturers’ to warn woman patients of the possible dangers of the device, they may be held liable for those who suffer erosion.
