Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) and Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) are 2 common women’s health problems that are treated with the surgical implantation of a transvaginal mesh. However, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration has received a growing number of reports that the mesh device is causing complications, including urinary problems, erosion of vaginal tissue, pain, and infection. The transvaginal mesh has not been recalled and has continued to be used by health care practitioners, despite the warnings.
If you have a transvaginal mesh and have symptoms similar to those noted above, you may have a case. For a free review of your case, call the attorney team at Michael J. O’Connor & Associates at 1-800-518-4LAW.
