The US Drug Watchdog has expanded their national initiative focused on making certain victims of a severe transvaginal mesh failure get to the best possible lawyers, and because the damages are so gender specific the group is promising at least initially the lawyers will all be women. The group says, "We have never seen damages this severe in a medical device failure before, and what has us most concerned is the potential number of victims. According to the New York Times, in 2010, about 185,000 US women underwent procedures in which mesh was implanted vaginally to treat urinary incontinence. That was 2010 alone. We also need to emphasize this is a national problem with victims in every state from the biggest by population such as California, New York, Texas, Florida, to the smallest by population including Maine, South Dakota, Montana, Alaska, and Wyoming." 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 is urging any woman, who has had the transvaginal mesh surgical procedure done, and now has developed severe medical complications to call them anytime at 866-714-6466.
The US Drug Watchdog is indicating symptoms of a transvaginal mesh failure may include:
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. If you have a friend, or loved one who is a recipient of a transvaginal mesh product 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 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
