Doctors Adjust As Vaginal Mesh Implant Failure Lawsuits Mount
By John Curran
There are two real goals of any massive legal action, and bladder sling implant class action lawsuits are no different. Transvaginal mesh lawsuit lawyers want to get the best possible result for their clients for ongoing treatments to start. Yet it is also important for medical professionals to actually change their habits regarding defective products. It seems that gynecologists who considered vaginal mesh implant failure risks are now shying away from them.
During a recent survey released by the American Urogynecologic Society, doctors were asked whether FDA action on bladder sling implant side effects affected their choices in using these devices to treat conditions such as stress urinary incontinence (SUI) or pelvic organ prolapse (POP). More than three-quarters of the respondents either planned to pursue other treatment options or take more time to explain transvaginal mesh implant side effects to their patients. Only one in 16 don't have chosen not to use vaginal mesh implant devices, however.
The FDA statement on transvaginal mesh implant side effects reported that other surgical options were just as effective for pelvic organ prolapse. "There are clear risks associated with the transvaginal placement of mesh to treat POP,” noted Dr. William Maisel, deputy director of the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health. “Mesh is a permanent implant -- complete removal may not be possible and may not result in complete resolution of complications.”
That, unfortunately, will not help the women whose pain and ruptured organs have them considering contacting a transvaginal mesh lawsuit lawyer, however. It does mean that the FDA is aware of the problems that nearly all manufacturers of these devices have seen with bladder sling implant side effects. As Top Class Actions has noted previously, early detection could allow for natural exercises and lifestyle changes as treatments.
In addition to bladder sling implant failure, risks such as organ puncture and vaginal mesh sexual dysfunction side effects are things women with incontinence or organ prolapse should consider before choosing to use a vaginal mesh implant.
