Dallas Transvaginal Mesh Lawyer
Injuries Caused by Defective Transvaginal Mesh or Pelvic Sling Medical Implants
If you are one of the many women in the Dallas area who had a transvaginal mesh surgery and are suffering from complications, then you might be entitled to seek compensation.
What is Transvaginal Mesh?
Transvaginal Mesh was introduced to the public in the 1990s and is manufactured by Johnson & Johnson. It is a hammock-like woven fabric or synthetic mesh that is implanted through the vagina. Once the mesh is inserted, it is designed to permanently stay. It is created to repair the pelvic organ prolapse that occurs in older women after they have had a child, a hysterectomy, or menopause. Pelvic organ prolapse can occur when an a woman's pelvic muscles weaken and the bladder, uterus, and rectum drop in the vagina area. Pelvic organ prolapse can cause pain during intercourse, discomfort and a leakage of urine when coughing, sneezing or laughing.
Health Risks From Transvaginal Mesh?
Over the last several years, there have been health risks related to the use of transvaginal mesh. Between 2005 and 2010, the FDA conducted extensive research of the health risks and found that thousands of women were suffering from complications due to the transvaginal mesh. The FDA issued a notice advising women of the complications and the health risks. In 2012, Johnson & Johnson recalled their transvaginal mesh products because of the health risks and the study conducted by the FDA. The health risks associated with transvaginal mesh are erosion of the mesh, bleeding, pelvic pain, and urinary tract injuries. These side effects can cause vaginal scarring and can lead to other severe side effects. If you are suffering from one of these injuries due to a transvaginal mesh, then you should first seek medical attention and second consult with an experienced Dallas transvaginal mesh lawyer.
Many women who have suffered from transvaginal mesh surgery have undergone intensive revision surgery to try and correct the problem. However, this is proven to be very dangerous and it takes several surgeries until the transvaginal mesh is removed. This expensive surgery is very painful, it can lead to long term recovery, and there is a high risk of infection.
Cause of Action
You can bring a products liability cause of action against the manufacturer. In a products liability claim you must prove three elements. First, you must prove that you are injured. Second you must prove that the transvaginal mesh caused your injuries and third, you must prove the transvaginal mesh was defectively manufactured.
Products liability claims are very complex and challenging, especially when they involve a defective medical device. Medical experts will be needed to prove that your injuries were caused by the transvaginal mesh, as well as scientific research to show that the transvaginal mesh is defective.
