Numerous legal groups announce that the victimized patients of vaginal mesh have legal options. Therefore, the complainants should seek legal advice for them to be assisted accordingly in pursuing a vaginal mesh device lawsuit.
A vaginal mesh is implanted in women with urinary stress incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. It was numerously reported of being harmful to one's health because of the following reasons:
* erosion through the vaginal epithelium;
* reproductive system infections;
* urinary problems;
* recurrence of prolapsed;
* vaginal pain;
* abnormal bowel movement;
* bladder or blood vessel perforation;
* recurrence of incontinence;
* vaginal scarring; and
* painful sexual intercourse.
In October 2008 the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning about the use of this device. It directed women to consult their health care providers on other possible treatments other than the vaginal mesh surgery.
Furthermore, the FDA, in July 2011, reported that women who underwent vaginal mesh surgery were at stake for health complications than those who had another type of surgery.
The FDA has not yet recalled the vaginal mesh devices, but it recommends that women should weigh the good and the harm of the surgery.
Numerous legal groups say that the victimized patients of vaginal mesh have legal options. Moreover, women who have experienced the earlier mentioned vaginal mesh side effects may be able to participate in a similar legal action.
