On July 13, 2011, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration ("FDA") issued an updated safety communication warning healthcare providers and patients that surgical placement of mesh through the vagina to repair pelvic organ prolapse may expose patients to greater risk than other surgical options. Herren and Adams is reviewing cases on behalf of women who were surgically implanted with transvaginal mesh patches or bladder slings, and have suffered from complications, including:
- Urinary problems
- Mesh infection
- Vaginal scarring
- Bowel or bladder perforation
- Mesh erosion through vaginal epithelium
- Recurrence of incontinence or prolapse.
- Pain with intercourse
There are several companies that manufacture the mesh products. Most common are American Medical Systems, Bard, Boston Scientific and Johnson & Johnson.
- The attorneys at Herren & Adams have over 50 years combined experience in products liability/personal injury law practice and are highly-rated by Best Lawyers®, Super Lawyers® and Martindale-Hubbell®.
- Tom Herren and Chuck Adams are personally interviewing prospective clients who have been affected by vaginal mesh implants and would welcome the opportunity to speak with you. Please call (859) 254-0024. As with all litigation, there are deadlines.
