Alabama Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits
The transvaginal mesh was developed to help women deal with problems with pelvic prolapse, or dropping of the female pelvic organs onto the bladder and onto or into the vagina. This dropping is the result of weakened muscles on the pelvic floor. Pregnancy and the changes during menopause account for many cases.
When the organs drop onto the bladder, women experience stress urinary incontinence, when everyday occurrences such as sneezes, coughs, or laughter cause urine to leak. The transvaginal mesh was designed to keep the organs in place and prevent or correct prolapse by creating a mesh sling support for the pelvic organs. The surgical procedure prevents the organs from dropping and relieves bladder pressure. Alabama TVM lawsuit attorneys have discovered that there are many undisclosed complications occurred in Alabama women who underwent TVM surgery, resulting in Alabama transvaginal mesh lawsuits.
How TVM Damage Occurs
While some surgeries were successful, Alabama TVM lawsuit attorneys have investigated and found that many others caused sometimes severe complications. Some women were affected by the TVM materials themselves. The synthetic, inorganic materials lose their intended shape over a period of time. Some of the materials can even erode. Then, since the mesh is attached by surgery to the lining of the vagina, the rough mesh edges may cut through the lining. Then, damage occurs to the lining of the vagina and even organs such as the bladder, rectum or uterus. More complications can occur because of infections, problems with the urinary tract, unusual bleeding and intercourse pain. Attorneys are now searching for Alabama women who have suffered these complications from materials or failed surgery and encouraging them to consider adding their voices to the Alabama transvaginal mesh lawsuits.
It is reported by the DrugWatch resource website that 75,000 TVM surgeries took place in the U.S. in 2010. Alabama TVM lawsuit attorneys found that more than 10% of those surgeries had complications. To treat them requires a surgical revision or removing of the mesh. Sometimes, growth of tissue in, over, and around the mesh makes it hard to remove. Sometimes, women have had to undergo multiple revisions, setting the stage for even more complications. If you are one of these women, the Alabama TVM lawsuit attorneys want you to join these Alabama transvaginal mesh lawsuits so that you might gain financial, physical, and emotional recovery.
What Can Be Done Now?
At this point, Alabama TVM lawsuit attorneys started to take notice and began to assemble an arsenal of legal resources to bring about action for all Alabama women involved in these failed surgeries. In 2011, the U.S. Federal Drug Administration issued warnings about the mesh devices so that doctors and patients would realize that the devices were potentially harmful. The Food and Drug Administration required all mesh producers to conduct safety studies.
