WHY YOU NEED TO TAKE LEGAL ACTION TODAY
Medical device manufacturers of TVM devices failed to warn patients, doctors, and surgeons about the dangers of using surgical mesh to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) in women. As a result, the Food and Drug Administration announced in 2011 that patients who have undergone a surgical implant procedure involving a TVM device could be at great risk of long-term health issues.
Reported complications associated with TVM implants have included:
- Mesh erosion
- Bowel, bladder, and organ perforations
- Infection and bleeding during urination
- Pain during sexual intercourse
- Vaginal scarring
In addition to the above-listed injuries, countless women across the nation have suffered serious and often irreversible emotional trauma. If you have experienced any complications associated with a surgical implant to treat POP, you could be eligible for financial compensation for your damages.
