Many Women Not Warned About Mesh Implant Risks
The Life Care Solutions Group discusses the impact inadequate warning about mesh implant risks has had on many female patients.
CONCORD, Calif., Sept. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued the first public notice about the risks associated with the transvaginal mesh implant in 2008. This was a decade after the device had been introduced to the market and several years after it had gained FDA approval. In fact, by the time this information was issued, more than a thousand reports regarding multiple mesh manufacturers had already been received by the agency concerning associated health complications suffered by women.
Severe health problems caused by mesh implant devices are now the focus of major lawsuits filed by numerous women throughout the US. Although information about the serious complications linked to the transvaginal mesh or sling is more readily available today, for years many female patients agreed to mesh surgery without having received adequate warning that their health may be comprised as a result and are now suffering the consequences.
According to the FDA reports, a number of serious health conditions can arise for female patients who have received a mesh implant. These include mesh erosion, which often requires multiple surgeries for removal of the device, pelvic pain, infections, pain during sexual intercourse, and other life altering impairments. These side effects have led to the filing of numerous personal injury lawsuits against mesh manufacturers, who some allege may have known about the risks prior to the public release of related information.
Women who have suffered as a result of having mesh implant surgery now have legal options for recovering damages they've incurred as a result. The Life Care Solutions Group is one resource where women in this predicament can obtain free information about available medical and legal options.
