Gynecological Mesh Lawyers

According to the National Institutes of Health, nearly 24 percent of women in the United States are affected with at least one pelvic floor disorder. Weaken pelvic muscles can result in discomfort, incontinence, and limits activity. One method to help strengthen and repair these muscles is to surgically implant a gynecological mesh.

Yet, when that surgical device causes more harm than good, the results can alter a woman’s life. That is the time that you want to pick up the phone and contact the Pennsylvania transvaginal mesh lawyers at Fellerman & Ciarimboli. For decades, we have been helping clients in Philadelphia and Northeastern Pennsylvania after being injured by a defective medical device. We understand the pain you’re going through and we’re ready to get you the help you need to get over the trauma.

What Is a Gynecological Mesh?

A urogynecologic mesh implant is a medical device used to repair pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence, usually caused by pregnancy and childbirth. It is permanently implanted along the weakened vaginal wall for repair or support the urethra or bladder neck. There are three main surgical procedures:

  • Transvaginal mesh
  • Transabdominal mesh
  • Mesh sling

There are two types of surgical mesh: absorbable, which will degrade as new tissue growth replaces the mesh, and non-absorbable, which a permanent device to help repair and support the organs.

The Problems With Transvaginal Mesh

Recent news reports state that Boston Scientific, one of the largest manufacturers of gynecological mesh, is currently the subject of thousands of lawsuits on behalf of women claiming the mesh causes injury and serious pain. According to media reports, many women report the transvaginal mesh can cause an inflammatory reaction which can lead to a shooting and uncomfortable pain.

Despite Boston Scientifics’ claims that the material is safe, a “60 Minutes” report found that the plastic – made of a polypropylene approved by FDA yet have raised concerns by plastic suppliers – used in these devices are unsafe to use in the human body.

Am I Eligible for the Gynecological Mesh Lawsuit?

Despite the assurances of the manufacturers that these devices and serious complications were rare, there have been almost 3,000 adverse events reported to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in the past three years. Complications of a defective transvaginal mesh include:

  • Stabbing, uncomfortable pain
  • Bleeding
  • Urinary infections
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Erosion
  • Organ Perforation
  • The need for extra surgeries

The only way to fix a transvaginal mesh is to undergo several surgeries to remove the device and repair the area, if necessary. If the mesh causes perforation of the organs, this requires very expensive surgery. This means you will miss work and it could take months for you to recover from another surgery. Expenses will pile up quickly and you will need help paying your expenses. Since the primary cause of these surgeries is because of a defective medical device, you have the right to sue.

Legal Damages Available for Defective TVM Sufferers

Those who have been injured by a defective transvaginal mesh implant, there are legal remedies available to you. You can file a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer and receive damages which include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment

In addition to pursuing a claim against the device manufacturers, you may also have a lawsuit against the doctors who performed the surgery.

But every case is unique. It is important to speak with an experienced transvaginal mesh attorney to figure out what is the best course of legal action for you.
