Lawsuit: Vaginal Mesh Implant Failure Worsened Condition
By John Curran
Vaginal mesh implants are designed to give women the chance to move past urinary incontinence, but they don't always work out as planned. One of the latest vaginal implant lawsuit to be filed alleges that the Ethicon, Inc. vaginal mesh product Gynecare Prosime failed. The bladder sling implant not only did not help, it actually led to frequent uncontrollable urination in the Plaintiff, a woman from Texas.
There are hundreds of similar bladder sling implant lawsuits wending their way through courts. Bladder sling implant failure class action lawsuit lawyers note that almost regardless of which manufacturer created the device, they are all likely to fail. The goal of the bladder sling implant is to strengthen the pelvic wall, especially after childbirth and other conditions that weaken pelvic tissue.
As the Texas woman's claim demonstrates, the devices have a tendency to fail. For one, many of the vaginal mesh implant failures come because they are designed to use polypropylene. Many campers know it as a base layer, but it actually is rejected by most people's bodies. That can lead to tearing within the pelvis, and even puncture other organs in some respects.
The additional risk is that if the device fails, as the woman's bladder sling implant failure class action lawsuit lawyers contend, the incontinence problem is worsened. Many urologists and surgeons are now shying away from the procedure, with nearly three in four either carefully warning their patients or limiting usage entirely.
There is good news in that many women can avoid the risk of transvaginal mesh implant failure through other treatments. One involves injecting botox into muscles that can spasm, while others focus on lifestyle changes. Even a few modifications to when one goes to the bathroom can help reduce the risk. It is certainly a safer bet than having to deal with multiple surgeries.
