Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit Injuries And Complications
Transvaginal mesh devices are surgically implanted to provide added support for pelvic organs and to ease pelvic pressure and urinary leakage for women who suffer from pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence. Most of the transvaginal mesh products approved for the use in the U.S. where cleared through the Food & Drug Administration’s (FDA) 510(k) process, which doesn’t require manufacturers to conduct human studies of a device’s safety or efficacy if it can be shown that the product is “substantially equivalent” to another approved device. Critics of the FDA have asserted that this process has allowed untested and dangerous transvaginal mesh devices to be implanted in thousands of women with disastrous consequences.
In October 2008, the FDA warned that it had received more than 1,000 reports of serious complications, including deaths, between 2005 and 2007 associated with the use of transvaginal mesh devices in the surgical repair of pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence.
Less than two years later, in July 2011, the agency revealed in another warning that it had received more than 2,800 adverse event reports since the October 2008 alert, including:
- Mesh Erosion.
- Erosion through internal tissue
- Recurrence of pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence
- Urinary problems
- Vaginal scarring
- Bowel, bladder and blood vessel perforation
- Painful sexual intercourse
According to the 2011 alert, such problems were not rare when transvaginal mesh was used to repair pelvic organ prolapse. The FDA also stated that it had been unable to conclude that transvaginal mesh offered any additional benefits over traditional treatments for pelvic organ prolapse. Even after the mesh was removed surgically, many women continued to suffer from pain, discomfort and disability. In other cases, surgeons were unable to remove all of the mesh despite repeated surgeries.
