Vaginal Mesh / Tape / Slings Cases
Vaginal mesh is placed transvaginally in women being treated for Stress Urinary Incontinence or Pelvic Organ Prolapse. It is designed to permanently protect and support the area during surgery. Tape and slings are used to treat Stress Urinary Incontinence.
Vaginal mesh, tape and slings are associated with a number of serious and potentially fatal injuries. According to the FDA, more than 1,000 women have suffered severe complications from mesh created by nine different manufacturers.
Complications can arise during mesh insertion or from mesh erosion and include:
– Bladder and other infections
– Severe pain
– Bowel, bladder or blood vessel perforation and bleeding
– A recurrence of the Pelvic Organ Prolapse or Stress Urinary Incontinence, meaning multiple corrective surgeries.
If you or someone you know has suffered injuries due to the use of vaginal mesh, tape or slings, you may be entitled to compensation. The Law Office of Christopher Cueto will investigate your case and pursue the compensation you are owed.
