Surgical Mesh Devices
The Joel Bieber Firm is currently considering the pursuit of claims against the following medical device manufacturers, relating to Transvaginal Mesh Failures: Johnson & Johnson, Boston Scientific, American Systems and Bard.
The FDA has issued a warning relating to these surgical mesh systems that were used during a wide variety of surgical procedures that were performed to repair weakened or damaged tissue. The FDA warning is here, which outlines the information; what you should do and the complications from Pelvic Organ Prolapse.
Vaginal mesh erosion is the most common mesh-related complication and reportedly occurs in about 10% of patients within 12 months of surgery. Other adverse effects that have been reported include: infection, pain, urinary problems, recurrence of prolapse and/or incontinence; bowel, bladder and blood vessel perforation and erosion through vaginal epithelium.
On July 13, 2011, the FDA issued a safety warning to health-care providers who use surgical mesh in POP or SUO repairs. To date, there have been approximately 4000 reports of adverse events.
