If you have had complications following a transvaginal mesh implant you may be entitled to compensation. The FDA has warned of some serious problems linked to transvaginal mesh including:
- Mesh Erosion
- Chronic Pain
- Corrective Surgeries
In 2016 transvaginal mesh was reclassified as a Class III medical device. Class III medical devices usually sustain or support life, are implanted, or present potential unreasonable risk of illness or injury.
In April 2019, the FDA ordered all remaining manufacturers of surgical mesh products indicated for the transvaginal repair of pelvic organ prolapse to stop selling and distributing the products in the U.S. They have determined that the manufacturers “have not demonstrated a reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness for these devices”.
There are claims against transvaginal mesh manufacturers that have yet to be settled. If you or someone you know suffered any of those problems you may be entitled to compensation. For a free consultation, call Hensley Legal Group today.
