Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI) are medical conditions that impact the quality of life for thousands of women nationwide. Many women have relied on surgically implanted pelvic and bladder support products, such as transvaginal mesh, to help correct POP or SUI and allow them to live a more normal life.
Unfortunately, numerous complications have been linked to transvaginal mesh. The most common include infection, urinary problems, pain, vaginal tissue erosion and a recurrence of the initial condition.
Women who have experienced any of the complications associated with transvaginal mesh may qualify for compensation from the manufacturers of this product in order to help with the cost of medical expenses, as well as pain and suffering. The experienced legal team at Reed & Terry, L.L.P., in Katy and Sugar Land, Texas, is available to help you recover the full and fair amount you deserve.
Texas Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit Attorneys
Transvaginal mesh was developed to be an improvement over traditional surgical techniques used to treat POP and SUI. In many instances, however, transvaginal mesh implants have caused more problems than the existing conditions they are meant to treat.
In fact, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been concerned about complications arising from transvaginal mesh since 2008. Recently, the FDA stated that these complications may expose patients to greater risk than traditional repairs performed without transvaginal mesh.
Corrective procedures, known as revision surgeries, cannot always reverse the damage done by transvaginal implants. Not only have these medical devices failed to correct patients' medical conditions, they also have further damaged the women's bodies. The result is both physically and emotionally taxing.
Victims are seeking legal justice and compensation. A number of transvaginal mesh lawsuits throughout Texas are being combined as part of a multidistrict litigation (MLD) proceeding. MLD is designed to help expedite the hearing process, as it allows a judge to make findings of law using information that is relevant to all cases.
