Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) October 31, 2011
Some recipients of transvaginal mesh patch implants may be experiencing severe injuries, and should be aware of the complications and need for followup care. In light of the recent update from the FDA about these side effects occurring frequently, injury attorney Glen Lerner is offering free evaluations to anyone wishing to seek information and recovery surgery.
Transvaginal mesh implants are used in the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI), which occurs when tissue that holds the organs in place is stretched, resulting in bulging. The mesh implants, made of synthetic materials, are placed to reinforce the weakened tissue.
The FDA website reports more than 4,000 complaints about complications from these implants have been since 2005, resulting in multiple public warnings from the FDA. Complications may include pain, (including during intercourse), erosion through the vagina, organ perforation, infection, bleeding and scarring.
It is important to note that these complications are not linked to any particular brand of mesh. Any transvaginal mesh implant recipient should be aware of these potential risks.
Consumers who have suffered side effects can receive care and possibly compensation, but may not know how to proceed. Injury attorney Glen Lerner is offering free evaluations to anyone suffering side effects from these implants.
