Transvaginal Surgical Mesh Injury Lawyers in Detroit & Southfield Michigan

On October 20, 2008, the FDA issued a Public Health Notification to health care practitioners alerting them to serious complications when transvaginal surgical mesh is implanted to treat various medical conditions.

Uses for Transvaginal Surgical Mesh (TMV)

Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) occurs when a pelvic organ, such as the bladder or uterus, drops from its normal position and pushes against the vaginal walls due to the weakening of muscles – most often as a result of childbirth or surgery. Stress Urinary Incontinence (“SUI”) is a type of incontinence that results from insufficient strength of pelvic floor muscles. SUI causes leakage of urine during moments of physical stress, such as coughing, laughing, sneezing, exercising, or other movements that increase intra-abdominal pressure and pressure on the bladder.

Transvaginal Surgical Mesh is used in procedures to treat POP and SUI. The Mesh is placed transvaginally and is intended to alleviate the pain and discomfort that is accompanied with POP and SUI.

Specific complications associated with Transvaginal Surgical Mesh include:

  • Erosion through vaginal epithelium
  • Infection
  • Pain
  • Urinary problems
  • Recurrence of prolapse/incontinence

Nine manufacturers make Transvaginal Surgical Mesh under various trade names. The product names and manufacturers include:

  • ContaSure by The Neomedic Company
  • Mentor ObTape Vaginal Sling by The Mentor Corporation

Your ability, understanding, compassion and at time dispassionate way of speaking for those who no longer can speak for themselves are truly remarkable.

You and your team handled everything so professionally and have been so personable and compassionate. In particular, your paralegal was wonderful to me, showed me and others such empathy, and made everything so smooth. I will be happy to recommend your firm to anyone who needs legal help.
