PBS Special Shines Light on Issues Involving Transvaginal Mesh Implants
Date:4/5/2013

(PRWEB) April 05, 2013

The transvaginal mesh injury attorneys at Danziger & De Llano watched a recent episode of PBS’ Need to Know series with great interest, and expect that the show will generate a great deal of concern as well as inquiries from women who have been negatively impacted by transvaginal mesh products. On March 22nd, PBS aired a special program devoted to how the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) goes about approving medical devices. The show specifically focused on whether the process provides adequate protection for the health of the American public, and used as an example a product used to treat pelvic organ prolapse that is known as transvaginal mesh.

Transvaginal Mesh Products

In presenting the FDA’s approval process, the March 22nd show highlighted the problems experienced by a South Dakota woman who had been diagnosed several years earlier with pelvic organ prolapse, and who had undergone a transvaginal mesh procedure at her doctor’s recommendation. The program told the story of how the woman had allegedly suffered severe complications with the product including debilitating pain, and she has since endured almost two dozen surgeries to remove the product and correct the problems that it has caused. She is not alone; over 14,000 lawsuits have been filed against various transvaginal mesh manufacturers for similar health problems allegedly suffered by patients who have had them implanted.

Lawsuits Filed for Complications

The PBS program went on to detail the end-result of the South Dakota woman’s saga; a lawsuit was filed on her behalf, and a jury in Atlantic County, New Jersey awarded her over $11 million dollars in damages. (Gross v. Gynecare Inc., Atl-L-6966-10, Superior Court of Atlantic County, New Jersey (Atlantic City)

The lawfirm of Danziger & De Llano are currently representing several women who have suffered problems similar to those outlined in the PBS program and attorney Paul Danziger is appreciative of the attention that the documentary paid to the issue. “The PBS program not only did a tremendous job of explaining how dangerous devices such as the transvaginal mesh products can come to market, but also made thousands of women who are suffering aware of the source of their relentless pain; these women deserve justice, and I expect that as a result of this documentary many more will seek both medical and legal help.”
