Potential Vaginal Mesh Users Discouraged by Complications


 
Health,Advice,Law
Transvaginal mesh is a surgically implanted device mainly used for women who are suffering from pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence. The device is implanted within the vagina, serving as a pelvic sling to help reinforce the vaginal wall. According to reports, however, urogynecology specialists have gradually decreased the use of transvaginal mesh devices in vaginal repair surgeries due to the large number of reported complications. Moreover, mounting transvaginal mesh lawsuits have also reportedly discouraged doctors from recommending the product.

Producers of Transvaginal Mesh Implants and their Products

Some of the manufacturers of transvaginal mesh devices include Covidien, Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon, C.R. Bard, Endo Pharmaceuticals, and Mentor Corporation. Furthermore, Surgical mesh devices have various brand names, such as Bladder Neck Suspension Kit, MiniArc, Sparc Sling, ProteGen Sling, Avaulta System, ObTape, IVS Tunneller I, Desara Sling, and many others.

Complications Associated with Transvaginal Mesh Devices

A large number of women who were implanted with a transvaginal mesh device reportedly suffered from complications. According to such reports, the device could shrivel up inside the membrane of the vaginal wall, causing problems and injuries. In addition, when the mesh device is rejected by the body, patients may suffer from dangerous and potentially permanent consequences. As a result, some women may need to undergo several corrective procedures in order to rectify the problems.

In response to documented reports of transvaginal mesh adverse effects, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration studied the devices thoroughly. During its research study, the agency found out that complications associated with use of the device are more common than previously indicated by manufacturing companies. Moreover, the study also indicated that there is no significant difference between prolapse patients who had the mesh and those who did not have it. In the end, the agency issued a public safety update that clearly states these concerns.

Aside from the above mentioned problems, there were also reports of the transvaginal mesh device wearing away into the tissue surrounding it. This has allegedly resulted in punctured organs. It is almost impossible to do restorative procedures on patients suffering from this injury because parts of the device are, at times, almost fused to the surrounding tissue. Hence, many distraught patients filed a lawsuit against transvaginal mesh manufacturers in order to receive possible compensation for all the suffering they have endured.

Transvaginal Mesh Use Decreases in Number

Before the serious complications were discovered, transvaginal mesh implants were popular among medical specialists and general doctors. However, the use of the implants significantly decreased after the discovery of side effects. Nonetheless, Renal and Urology News reports that a survey conducted by Dr. Matthews, a medical expert from the University of North Carolina, revealed that doctors with expertise in the area were more likely to use transvaginal mesh implants for abdominal or vaginal repair of prolapse than those without expertise.

In recent years, transvaginal mesh implants have been reportedly used less for treating prolapse. This is likely due to the fact that most physicians admitted that they plan on avoiding such devices as much as possible. More information regarding this subject and the lawsuits involving transvaginal mesh implants may be found on the webpages of personal injury attorneys, including the Rottenstein Law Group’s rotlaw.com.
