Transvaginal mesh, also referred to as a bladder sling, has for years been a popular treatment option for women suffering from pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). But an increasing number of reports linking serious health problems to transvaginal mesh prompted a July advisory from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and sparked numerous lawsuits against transvaginal mesh manufacturers including:

  • American Medical Systems (AMS)
  • Boston Scientific
  • C.R. Bard
  • Covidien
  • Ethicon
  • Johnson & Johnson

The Mobile, Alabama, defective product attorneys at Long & Long are currently evaluating potential claims from women who believe they have been harmed due to transvaginal mesh. Complications linked to transvaginal mesh include:

  • Erosion of mesh into the vagina
  • Hardening of the mesh
  • Infection
  • Organ injuries
  • Pelvic discomfort
  • Urinary problems
  • Vaginal discomfort

The makers of transvaginal mesh face a number of allegations, including that the manufacturers did not adequately research the devices, were negligent in the design of bladder slings, and failed to adequately warn of the risk of complications. If you believe you’ve suffered the adverse effects of a transvaginal mesh device, please contact the Mobile, Alabama, product liability lawyers at Long & Long to schedule your free case evaluation.
