(PRWEB) October 21, 2011
The law firm of d’Oliveira & Associates, P.C. is currently running a campaign to inform women with defective transvaginal mesh implants of their possible legal claims. d’Oliveira & Associates is working with some of the leading attorneys in the United States and Canada who are representing clients who have been injured by transvaginal mesh.
Surgical mesh patches are implants used to add extra support for damaged tissue. Transvaginal mesh is used to treat conditions that occur after pregnancy and childbirth. The three main conditions that transvaginal mesh is used for are stress urinary incontinence (SUI), pelvic organ prolapse (POP), and to repair tissue during a hysterectomy. Surgeons recently began repairing the damaged vaginal tissue with mesh, but the FDA is warning patients that the mesh implanted in many women is failing and causing injuries to implant recipients.
Some of the common injuries resulting from defective transvaginal mesh patches are infection, erosion of the vaginal tissue, vaginal scarring, perforation of organs, and pain during sexual intercourse. In addition to these complications, many women have found that the conditions they originally tried to treat with the mesh, pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence, have re-occurred.
d’Oliveira & Associates, P.C. has recently begun a television ad campaign alerting women about these serious complications. Many women with these complications need surgery to remove or repair the defective mesh, and the attorneys working with d’Oliveira & Associates are representing these women in their claims against the manufacturers of the defective product.
