Transvaginal Mesh to repair pelvic organ prolapse poses risks
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) March 01, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than women who suffer severe adverse events from Trasvaginal Mesh. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
On February 7th, 2012 the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict litigation (JPML) issued an order consolidating three Transvaginal Mesh multidistrict litigations (MDL No. 2325, No. 2326 and No. 2327), into a single proceeding to be heard in the Southern District of West Virginia. The defendants American Medical Systems, Boston Scientific Corp. and Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon are accused that they recklessly and negligently marketed the Tranvsaginal Mesh products and put the companies’ interest in making profits ahead of the safety of women.
Between 2008 and 2010, the U.S. FDA received 1,500 reports of complications related to Mesh treatment procedures. On July 13th, 2011 the FDA issued a safety communication that surgical placement of Transvaginal Mesh to repair pelvic organ prolapse poses risks and calling attention to the hundreds of reports of adverse outcomes that it had received.
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, can provide helpful advice and simple solutions including how to get in contact with legal counsel so that, in case of Transvaginal Mesh severe adverse events, someone can easily and inexpensively deal with it. As Mr. Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, added, “What all this information really illustrates is that threat of severe adverse events from Transvaginal Mesh remains. For that reason, our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”
According to the July 2011 FDA report “the most frequently reported complications from surgical mesh used to repair POP include mesh erosion, pain, infection, bleeding, pain during sexual intercourse, organ perforation from surgical tools used in the mesh placement procedure, and urinary problems. Some reports cited the need for additional surgeries or hospitalization to treat complications or to remove the mesh”. The Agency said that other options may expose women to less risk than transvaginal procedure.
