New srudy confirms risk of transbvaginal mesh

Another study has highlighted the risk of transvaginal mesh implant products.

A new study in the respected Journal of the American Medical Association seems to confirm previous concerns over the safety of transvaginal mesh products.

A total of 215 women were involved in the study, and 126 of them had undergone transvaginal mesh implant surgery seven years ago.

In the study, doctors examined patient outcomes at various stages after implantation. They found that after seven years, the risk of erosion of the implant was 10.5 percent.

While the study did not single out any specific brand of vaginal mesh, several companies are facing lawsuits charging that they did not adequately warn women of the risks associated with the implants. Women who have had the surgery have complained of pelvic pain, pain during intercourse, and even perforation of pelvic organs.

Lawsuits against transvaginal mesh manufacturers are having an impact in the marketplace. In a recent survey, 60 percent of women who were potential candidates for transvaginal mesh surgery said they first heard about the mesh through the lawsuits against manufacturers.

A Tucson transvaginal mesh lawyer can help if you have been injured by these products. Women around the country are stepping forward to see justice against companies that have used this mesh and placed profits before the well-being of patients. A qualified attorney can represent you against the manufacturers of defective medical products.
