it is not clear that transvaginal POP repair with mesh is more effective than traditional non-mesh repair in all patients with POP and it may expose patients to greater risk
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 04, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Mary Higbee. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
According to court documents, on August 7th, 2012, Arizona resident Mary Higbee filed a lawsuit in Georgia Middle District Court (case no. 4:2012cv00198) alleging she suffered severe complications from her transvaginal Mesh. Transvaginal surgical mesh is used to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI). In the lawsuit Higbee claims she suffered from stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and in October 2004 she was implanted with the ObTape vaginal sling device. Plaintiff claims that the ObTape sling caused her various severe problems, including infections, bleeding and mesh erosion leading to multiple surgeries.
On July 26th, 2012, Bloomberg reported that, according to California Jury, Christine Scott and her husband deserved $5.5 million damage award because of injuries caused by Bard’s Avaulta Plus vaginal implant (case no. S-1500-CV-266034).

On July 13, 2011 an FDA Safety Communication update was issued to inform the medical community and patients that serious complications associated with surgical mesh for transvaginal repair of POP are not rare. The FDA added that it is not clear that transvaginal POP repair with mesh is more effective than traditional non-mesh repair in all patients with POP and it may expose patients to greater risk.
