Vaginal Bladder Sling Problems
The lawyers at Carabin Shaw are reviewing claims and litigation on behalf of women who have experienced vaginal mesh problems or complications, which could have been prevented if adequate warnings had been provided for the bladder sling products.
Also known as a pelvic sling or bladder mesh, transvaginal support systems have been associated with a number of serious and debilitating internal injuries for women.
Financial Compensation may be available through a lawsuit for women who have experienced serious complication, such as severe pain, infection, erosion of the mesh or other problems.
All cases are reviewed on a contingency fee basis, which means that there are no fees or expenses unless a recovery is obtained.
Transvaginal mesh lawsuits are being reviewed by our law firm for women who have experienced:
- Erosion of the Mesh
- Urinary Problems
- Pelvic Pain
- Vaginal Pain
- Hardening of the Mesh
- Injury to Nearby Organs
- Difficulty during Sex
Problems with vaginal mesh systems marketed by a number of different medical device manufacturers have caused thousands of women to suffer severe injuries.
Not only do these products pose a risk of serious complications, there is no evidence that transvaginal insertion of a bladder sling has any benefit for women when its primary use is treating pelvic organ prolapse.
Our teams of lawyers are investigating potential claims for women who have received any type of surgical mesh or bladder sling to repair pelvic organ prolapse, which could include:
- Bard Avaulta Support System
- AMS Elevate Prolapse Repair System
- AMS Apogee Vault Suspension System
- AMS Perigee System
- AMS Monarc Sling System
- AMS Sparc Sling System
- Ethicon Gynecare Gynemesh
- Ethicon Gynecare Prolene Soft Mesh
- Ethicon Gynecare Prolift Pelvic Floor Repair System
- Ethicon Gynecare TVT Transvaginal Sling
- Boston Scientific Pinnacle Pelvic Floor Repair Kit
- Boston Scientific Uphold Vaginal Support System
- UGYTEX Dual Knit Mesh
- Coviden IVS Tunneler Sling
Due to the risk of vaginal mesh complications, the FDA warned in July 2011 that doctors should recognize that in most cases, pelvic organ prolapse can be treated successfully without a bladder sling or pelvic mesh. Thousands of women had a bladder sling or vaginal mesh implanted in recent years, and compensation may be available for serious injuries caused by the defective and dangerous design of the pelvic support systems.
As a result of the medical device manufacturers’ failure to adequately research the potential vaginal mesh problems or warn consumers and the medical community about the risk of complications, financial compensation may be available through a vaginal mesh lawsuit or class action claim.
All consultations are confidential and after reviewing a potential bladder sling lawsuit, there is no obligation to hire our law firm. If you do decide to move forward with a case, there are no attorney fees for us to represent you unless we are successful obtaining compensation.
