Based on hundreds of phone calls from victims of a transvaginal mesh, tape, or bladder sling failure the US Drug Watchdog now believes failures related to these types of medical products are much more severe, and numerous than they ever thought possible. The US Drug Watchdog says, "We have talked to scores of women in the last two months who have been told by their surgeon that quote, erosion is normal. Erosion is a medical term that refers to transvaginal mesh protruding out of the vaginal wall, and into the vagina. This is not a normal medical condition, it is a severe medical condition involving damages, and we want to make certain victims of a transvaginal mesh, tape, or sling failure get to the best possible attorneys, who are all also women." According to court records a transvaginal mesh failure occurs when the mesh fails to bind to a woman's pelvic tissues. As a consequence of this, the body rejects the mesh that has been sewn into it. As a result, the transvaginal mesh may start to poke its way through the vaginal wall and protrude out of the vaginal tissue. This complication is more commonly referred to as "erosion." The US Drug Watchdog has begun a very aggressive initiative designed to assist women in the United States, who are victims of a transvaginal mesh, tape, or bladder sling failure. The group is urging any woman, who has had the transvaginal mesh surgical procedure done, and now has developed severe complications to call them anytime at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog is indicating symptoms of a transvaginal mesh, tape, or sling implant failure may include:

  • Pain during sexual intercourse caused by erosion.
  • Mesh erosion through the vagina (the mesh is actually protruding out of the vaginal wall)
  • Vaginal Bleeding
  • Vaginal Infection
  • Urinary problems
  • Organ perforation

The US Drug Watchdog says, "One of the biggest problems we have with respect to our failed medical device or recalled drug initiative work is the average US consumer never hears about a drug recall or failures involving medical devices like a transvaginal mesh, tape, or a bladder sling. If you have a friend, or loved one who is a recipient of a transvaginal mesh, tape, or bladder sling that has already failed or is showing symptoms of a failure, please have them call us at 866-714-6466. We want to make certain all transvaginal mesh, tape, or bladder sling failure victims get to the best possible attorneys, to ensure they get the best possible compensation for their ordeal, and we will do our absolute best to make certain all of the attorneys are women." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
