Long Island Vaginal Injury Lawyer

If you have been injured by vaginal mesh during an operative procedure, you need to contact a Long Island vaginal injury lawyer now.  For many years, physicians and specialists placed transvaginal mesh in patients as a treatment option for certain medical conditions such as urinary stress incontinence and prolapse of pelvic organs. Many of these individuals soon began experiencing various complications. As a result, a recall of the transvaginal mesh was issued and numerous lawsuits have been filed. If you are among them, you may be entitled to compensation.  Siben & Siben has successfully represented many women who have been affected by this mesh and who have sustained vaginal injuries as a result of mesh insertion. 

Why Was This Mesh Used?

During pregnancy and birth, a woman’s body may develop problems. Some of the most common of these pregnancy induced issues are pelvic organ prolapse and urinary stress incontinence. With pelvic organ prolapse, a woman’s pelvis protrudes into the wall of the vagina often resulting in vaginal or organ protrusion or shifting. In more serious cases, there may be vaginal protrusion outside of the woman’s body. Stress urinary incontinence is an involuntary release of urine when a person sneezes, laughs or takes part in certain physical activities. This condition can develop as a result of child birth and with age as well. Your Long Island vaginal injury lawyer can help you understand your rights as a result of the use of this mesh.

Problems with Transvaginal Mesh

Large numbers of women with these health problems received the transvaginal mesh implant. This mesh was used with a promise that it would keep the organs in place and ultimately result in a better overall quality of health for the women who received the mesh. However, numerous women experienced great problems with the vaginal mesh. Some were left in poorer health conditions than before they received the supposed treatment. Some women suffered with mesh erosion through the vaginal tissues, extrusion of mesh from the body, painful sex, bladder puncture, bladder perforation, vaginal discharge and draining as well as vaginal scarring and pain. More common side effects include vaginal bleeding, bloating and chronic back pain.

Removal of the transvaginal mesh can be rather difficult. Most side effects or complications do not begin until the implant has been in place for a while. Tissues begin to quickly grow around and through the mesh which makes the implant very hard to remove. Many women have been left to suffer with medical issues caused by this mesh. If you are among them, contact your Long Island vaginal injury lawyer right away to get the ball rolling on compensation for your injury.

After the recall, many women have begun to come forward and seek compensation for their medical damages. Any company manufacturing a medical product that results in harm to a patient can be held responsible. Transvaginal mesh is a Class II medical product that does not require rigorous testing by the FDA. Mesh medical products are made by using the by-products of industrial petroleum operations.
