Medical Device Failure Lawsuit Attorneys

Stronger measures are needed to ensure that the consumers are being protected.

Houston, Texas (PRWEB) January 08, 2013

McDonaldWorley.com, a national law firm based in Houston, has announced support of the FDA's decision to require additional studies by vaginal mesh device manufacturers. "The surgical mesh devices, which are used to treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and pelvic organ prolapse (POP) in women, may be associated with significant health risks," said Ms. Michelle Eddington of McDonaldWorley.com.

The attorneys at McDonaldWorley.com offer free consultations for problems or side affects that may be caused by mesh devices. Women who suffered injuries can get help filing a lawsuit claim by taking advantage of the free claim reviews via the website.

McDonaldWorley.com feels that stronger measures are needed to ensure that patients safety is being protected.

On January 4, 2012, the FDA announced that it ordered 33 manufacturers of the surgical mesh devices used for POP, and 11 manufacturers of devices used in SUI to conduct new studies related to the safety of these devices.

A recent report from an FDA committee questions the effectiveness of using these surgical mesh devices. The document clearly states that the FDA committee "has not seen conclusive evidence that using transvaginally placed mesh in POP repair improves clinical outcomes any more than traditional POP repair...it may expose patients to greater risk."

"By requiring new studies into the safety of these devices, the FDA may now have the ability to more closely monitor the impact of these devices on women's health," said the attorneys at McDonaldWorley.com.

Based on current and past litigation in the United States, it is believed that these implants have caused harm to thousands of women. Now that the FDA is taking a closer look at the safety surrounding these medical implants, the manufacturers will be more driven to ensure that the devices are safe and do not cause undo harm to women.The firm currently offers a free legal case review for women that suffered complications that may have been caused by the medical implants.
