Women nationwide are now experiencing horrible medical problems due to the transvaginal mesh that was implanted to treat their stress urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse. Instead of receiving relief for their conditions, those implanted with the transvaginal mesh are now dealing with debilitating pain and often a recurrence of their original incontinence or prolapse.
Mesh products have been on the market for a number of years and were originally used for hernia repairs. The problems began when these manufacturers began to develop transvaginal mesh, a product which was not necessary, but developed to increase profits. In developing this product, these manufacturers utilized a loophole in FDA regulations which allowed them to send this product to market without first being tested in humans.
Upon its release into the market in early 2004, the FDA began receiving reports that these transvaginal mesh devices were failing or malfunctioning at an alarming rate. Some have indicated that these mesh products fail 10% of the time. Between 2005 and 2010, the FDA received more than 4,000 of these reports, which indicated failure or malfunction of the mesh.
Due to the faulty transvaginal mesh, many women experience severe pain and a number of other medical conditions, such as, but not limited to: erosion, exposure, extrusion, protrusion, severe pelvic pain, infections, urinary problems, bleeding, organ perforation, muscular problems, vaginal scarring, mesh contraction, and, in severe cases, death. These physical injuries often lead to subsequent surgeries in an effort to prevent further breakdown of the mesh material and for treatment of the newly occurring condition.
