The US Drug Watchdog is now convinced transvaginal mesh, tape, or bladder sling failures are a much more severe problem than previously known, based on the calls they have received from victims. The group fears the number of victims could be in the thousands, or more. According to the New York Times, "In 2010, about 185,000 women underwent procedures in which mesh was implanted vaginally to treat urinary incontinence. That is 2010 alone." According to court records a transvaginal mesh product failure occurs when the mesh fails to bind to a woman's pelvic tissues. As a consequence of this, the body rejects the mesh that has been sewn into it. As a result, the transvaginal mesh may start to poke its way through the vaginal wall and protrude out of the vaginal tissue. This complication is more commonly referred to as "erosion." The US Drug Watchdog is offering to help any US women, who is a recipient of a transvaginal mesh, tape, or bladder sling product that has failed, they are urging victims to call them for the names of best possible attorneys, and the group is promising the attorneys will all be women. For more information victims of a transvaginal mesh, tape, or bladder sling failure are welcome to contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-646. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
The US Drug Watchdog is indicating symptoms of a vaginal mesh implant product failure may include:
The US Drug Watchdog says, "One of the biggest problems we have with respect to our failed medical device or recalled drug initiative work is the average US consumer never hears about a drug recall or failures involving medical devices like the transvaginal mesh failures. If you have a friend, or loved one who is a recipient of a transvaginal mesh that has already failed or is showing symptoms of a failure, please have them call us at 866-714-6466. We want to make certain these transvaginal mesh failure victims get to the best possible attorneys, to ensure they get the best possible compensation for their ordeal, and we will do our absolute best to make certain all of the attorneys are women." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
