The US Drug Watchdog is dramatically expanding their efforts to assist all women victims of a transvaginal mesh, tape, or bladder sling failure, this is a nationwide effort, and because the damages are so gender specific the group is promising to give all failure victims the names of national caliber attorneys who are all women. Just to get a sense of the size of this potential problem, according to the New York Times, "In 2010, about 185,000 women in the US underwent procedures in which mesh was implanted vaginally to treat urinary incontinence. That is 2010 alone." Transvaginal mesh, tape, or sling 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. Erosion may result in extreme pain, infection, bleeding, vaginal discharge. The US Drug Watchdog is expanding their very aggressive initiative designed to assist women in the United States, because they believe there is a great need for this service. The group is urging any woman, who has had a transvaginal mesh, tape, or bladder sling surgical procedure done, and now has developed severe complications to call them anytime at 866-714-6466 for more information. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
The US Drug Watchdog is indicating symptoms of a vaginal mesh, tape, or bladder 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

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 the transvaginal mesh, tape, or bladder sling failures. 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 these transvaginal mesh, tape, or 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
