Wednesday, February 20, 2013 - The Onder Law Firm‘s attorneys handling vaginal mesh side effects cases have expanded their transvaginal mesh side effects website to include the latest information regarding the Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation, including dispelling the misconception that transvaginal mesh lawsuits are class action lawsuits. These transvaginal mesh lawsuits, which are taking place in United States District Court, Southern District of West Virginia (MDL Nos. 2187, 2325, 2326 and 2327), originated after thousands, possibly tens of thousands, of women experienced severe side effects after having a transvaginal placement of surgical mesh to treat pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence. The side effects most commonly reported by the women speaking with the vaginal mesh attorneys at The Onder Law Firm have been infection, inflammation, pain, bleeding, pain during intercourse and, in some cases, damage to nearby organs, all typically resulting from erosion of the surgical mesh into the vaginal wall.
Transvaginal placement of surgical mesh was first approved by the FDA for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse in 2002 as a Class II medical device. Class II medical devices may be approved by the FDA without any human testing if the device is considered to be similar to other products previously approved by the agency. Other methods of pelvic organ prolapse repair exist and transvaginal mesh is a relatively new therapy. The FDA has issued two transvaginal mesh warnings thus far. The first FDA transvaginal mesh warning occurred in 2008 and warned of side effects. The second FDA transvaginal mesh warning, which was issued in 2011 was an update to the first warning and cautioned potential users that the incidence of side effects is far more common than initially thought, titling the warning "Update of Serious Complications Associated with Transvaginal Placement of Surgical Mesh for Pelvic Organ Prolapse Repair".
