Trans-vaginal mesh – Denver Mass Tort Attorneys

Transvaginal Mesh Device - Colorado Dangerous Medical Devices Attorney - Colorado Burg Simpson Burg Simpson attorneys are currently investigating claims that defective transvaginal mesh products, used to treat stress urinary incontinence (leakage of urine during moments of physical activity, such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercise) and Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP), may be putting the health of thousands of women at risk.

FDA ISSUES HEALTH SAFETY ALERT ON VAGINAL MESHES

In July 2011, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a nationwide alert warning women and medical professionals of the considerable health risks associated with these surgical mesh patches.

In its safety alert, the FDA also acknowledged the findings of a study published in May 2011 by the New England Journal of Medicine, which revealed that the use of transvaginal meshes may be no more effective in treating urinary incontinence and POP than more traditional forms of treatment, such a colporrhaphy (the process of sticking connective tissue in the vaginal wall back together.)

LEADING MANUFACTURERS OF VAGINAL MESH IMPLANTS

  • C.R. Bard
  • Mentor
  • Boston Scientific
  • Gynecare
  • Tyco
  • Covidien
  • Ethicon (a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson)
  • American Medical Systems

STUDY REVEALS ALARMING STATISTICS ON THE SAFETY OF VAGINAL MESH IMPLANTS

In fact, the New England Journal of Medicine study found that women treated with a transvaginal mesh patch

  • Were at 7 times greater risk of bladder perforation than colporrhaphy
  • Were at 2 times the risk of urinary incontinence (loss of bladder control)
  • May require follow-up surgery to correct problems

DANGEROUS SIDE-EFFECTS OF VAGINAL MESH PRODUCTS:

  • Mesh erosion of the vagina epithelium
  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • Reassurance of a Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP)
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Internal Bleeding
  • Infection

On February 7, 2012, the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation established separate MDLs against American Medical Systems (MDL 2325), Boston Scientific (MDL 2326), and Ethicon (MDL 2327) to join an existing MDL against C.R. Bard (MDL 2187) in the Southern District of West Virginia before Hon. Joseph R. Goodwin.

If you are suffering severe complications or side effects after being fitted with a transvaginal mesh, contact your doctor at once and seek urgent medical attention. You may also wish to consider your legal rights. You may be entitled to money damages for your medical expenses and suffering.
