Transvaginal Mesh Injury Cases Expanding Internationally
Posted on Feb 17, 2013
Transvaginal mesh injury cases have been rapidly expanding as more women come forward with terrible complications and, in some cases, the statute of limitations looms.
Implanted to treat pelvic organ prolapse and fix stress urinary incontinence, transvaginal mesh has been linked to serious, devastating side effects - including damage to the vaginal wall, extreme pain, bleeding, urinary problems, and even recurrence of the very problems it was meant to cure.
The implant is meant to be permanent, so reversal is extremely difficult if not impossible, and multiple surgeries might be needed.
While some cases against transvaginal mesh companies have already gone to trial, there are other women just now stepping forward. In Canada, for example, more than 300 women are filing a transvaginal mesh class action lawsuit right now.
There are about 40 manufacturers of transvaginal mesh worldwide. That means all over the world women have been injured by transvaginal mesh and now suffer from severe pain. Many of these victims can't work or take care of their families because of the severity of their injuries.
In Kansas City, transvaginal mesh cases are still being considered, but the statute of limitations is about to run out.
