Mesh Case Funding

In recent years, women have suffered severe complications from the use of vaginal mesh resulting in a multitude of lawsuits against manufacturers.

Surgical mesh is a medical device generally used to repair weakened or damaged tissue. The devise is made from both synthetic and biological material and is placed inside the women for various purposes.

In urogynecologic procedures, surgical vaginal mesh is permanently implanted to reinforce the weakened vaginal wall to repair pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or to support the urethra to treat incontinence.

Over the years, many medical manufacturers have created vaginal mesh products for sale in the medical marketplace. Some of these manufacturers are:

  • Avaulta Vaginal Meshes (Biosynthetic, Plus and Solo)
  • Gynecare Prosima, TVT, Gynemesh and Prolift products
  • Mentor ObTape
  • Bard Pelvic Meshes (PelviSoft, PelviLace and Pelvicol products)
  • AMS Mini Arc Single Incision Sling
  • Coloplast Mesh
  • Caldera Mesh
  • AMS BioArc, Elevate, Perigee and Apogee
  • Uretex
  • Tyco IVS
  • Boston Scientific Arise, Pinnacle, Advantage Fit, Lynx, Obtryx, Prefyx PPS and Solyx

In 2008, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) “issued a Public Health Notification and Additional Patient Information on serious complications associated with surgical mesh placed through the vagina (transvaginal placement) to treat POP and SUI (stress urinary incontinence).”

Citing the multitude of complication complaints the FDA was receiving, the FDA conducted a review of the vaginal mesh products and concluded that vaginal mesh products used in POP repair involves more risks than if the patient used traditional non-mesh surgical procedures; less complications appeared in abdominal placement as compared to transvaginal surgery using mesh products; there appeared to be no notable benefit in using the vaginal mesh; and while there may be an anatomic benefit in using the mesh for transvaginal surgical repair, there was no evidence of better symptomatic results.

In a more recent update, the FDA noted that complications in connection with the use of vaginal mesh were “not rare”. The update provided more recommendations for health care providers and patients as well as updated the steps the FDA was taking in their analysis of surgical mesh for the transvaginal repair of POP.

More specifically, the FDA found that “erosion of mesh through the vagina is the most common and consistently reported mesh-related complication from transvaginal POP surgeries using mesh. Mesh erosion can require multiple surgeries to repair and can be debilitating for some women. In some cases, even multiple surgeries will not resolve the complication.”

Further, mesh contraction (shrinkage) was now considered a risk although it was omitted in the 2008 Notification. The report suggested mesh contraction with vaginal shortening, vaginal tightening and vaginal pain were symptoms consistent with this condition. Some other complications are:

  • Infection
  • Erosion of the Mesh
  • Urinary Problems
  • Pelvic Pain
  • Vaginal Pain
  • Hardening of the Mesh
  • Injury to Nearby Organs
  • Difficulty during Sex

Many women are entitled to monetary compensation through a lawsuit against the manufacturers of transvaginal mesh products for their defective vaginal mesh if they experienced serious complications after surgery.

Lawsuits allege the transvaginal mesh manufacturer knew or should have known the risk of complications with the vaginal mesh product(s) yet they continued to market and promote the product as a safe and effective for treatment of pelvic organ prolapse.

SURGICAL MESH LAWSUIT FUNDING

The likelihood of plaintiffs recovering substantial damages for their ailments is good news. The bad news is the delay in recovering damages. The following factors contribute to this delay:

  • Severe injuries often require revisionary surgical procedures taking many months to recover to the extent needed to assess permanency and severity of the condition.
  • The necessity of expert testimony to prove both liability and damages in the lawsuit.
  • Product liability cases of this nature are often deemed Multi-District Litigation (MDL) by the courts for efficiency. This means many plaintiffs are grouped together for purposes of the lawsuit and could delay proceedings further.
