Greensboro, NC Transvaginal Mesh Lawyers Representing Bard/Avaulta® Mesh/Sling Cases
Greensboro-based personal injury firm Ward Black Law is actively pursuing cases regarding transvaginal mesh/sling devices implanted through surgery.
Transvaginal mesh/slings, or bladder slings, are used to treat two common health issues affecting women: Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) and Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI). Concern over serious health issues in women is mounting with more than 1,000 reported incidents of women suffering from erosion of vaginal tissue, infection, mesh erosion, pain, perforations of bowel, bladder or blood vessels, recurrence of Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Stress Urinary Incontinence, urinary problems and vaginal scarring.
“Women who have undergone surgery for transvaginal mesh and sling devices may experience serious side effects from these products,” said Greensboro attorney Janet Ward Black. “Our attorneys are experienced in cases such as these and can help ladies across North Carolina understand their rights concerning injuries caused by bladder slings.”
FDA URGENT PUBLIC NOTICE – JULY 13, 2011
On July 13, 2011, the FDA issued an urgent public notice regarding the use of transvaginal mesh (TVM) for the treatment of Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Stress Urinary Incontinence. They are now advising that doctors and their patients consider alternatives to TVM. In 2010, over 75,000 women had vaginal mesh surgery to repair POP. Of this group of women, at least 10% suffered mesh erosion and had to have surgery to remove the mesh within 12 months.
