The US Drug Watchdog says, "After talking with at least a thousand victims of a transvaginal mesh failure we are now calling the transvaginal mesh failure issue the absolute worst mess we have ever seen for women, and the damages are literally beyond comprehension. We are also talking about a potentially huge number of US women. 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. What we are now trying to do is focus on victims of a transvaginal mesh failure involving a unsuccessful repair surgery, or women who have developed erosion as a result of a transvaginal mesh failure, because we think these women have the worst damages, and we want to get them help." According to the FDA, "Transvaginal mesh 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 urging any woman, who has had the transvaginal mesh surgical procedure done, and now has developed severe complications like erosion to call them anytime at 866-714-6466. As part of their initiative the US Drug Watchdog is offering to send all US women, who are victims of a severe transvaginal mesh failure to national caliber attorneys-who are all women. No other group, or organization is offering this service.
The US Drug Watchdog is indicating symptoms of a vaginal mesh implant 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 severely injured 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
