Texas Woman Files Vaginal Mesh Implant Lawsuit Against Physician
By Andrea Gressman
On September 24, 2012, a new vaginal mesh implant lawsuit joined the many transvaginal mesh lawsuits being filed across the United States. This one was by a Texas resident, who filed in Harris County U.S. District Court.
Unlike previous vaginal mesh implant lawsuits that aim to hold the company responsible for its role in manufacturing defective devices, this vaginal mesh implant lawsuit names a specific person as the defendant. A doctor named Matthew M. Robinson implanted the bladder sling device and therefore the plaintiff is blaming him for the injuries she incurred resulting from the vaginal mesh implant.
The bladder sling implant lawsuit claims that she was seeking to treat her urinary incontinence, and had Dr. Robinson implant the vaginal mesh implant device, which led to severe complications.
The plaintiff's vaginal mesh lawsuit indicates a surgical procedure called a cystoscopy was performed that indicated the plaintiff was suffering from vaginal vault prolapse. To repair the prolapse, the doctor implanted the transvaginal mesh implant as a treatment for the condition.
Vaginal wall cave-ins or side effects leading to such a condition are usually the result of a vaginal vault prolapse. The walls are normally supported by muscles, but when they become weaker, they may not be able to support the walls. To fix the problem, synthetic mesh is normally inserted to help provide such support. It is designed to correctly restore the organs to their optimal position.
According to the plaintiff’s vaginal mesh implant lawsuit, the surgery did not go as planned, and instead of getting better, her condition worsened. She then experienced a number of side effects causing her serious injuries, continuous bleeding, and intense pain in her pelvis. Her transvaginal mesh implant lawsuit indicated that two more surgical procedures had to be performed to undo the conditions the bladder sling implant device caused her.
FDA Warning Noted in Vaginal Mesh Implant Lawsuit
With the help of a vaginal mesh implant lawyer who deals in personal injury cases, the plaintiff made the conscious choice to file a transvaginal mesh implant lawsuit in the hopes of a compensation award due to side effects and complications related to her vaginal mesh implant device. She indicated that a warning was issued by the FDA stating the commonality of serious problems linked with the surgical mesh. She seeks compensation in hopes of offsetting medical expenses as well as costs associated with her injuries.
