Monday, February 11, 2013 - The Onder Law Firm‘s transvaginal mesh lawyers are providing free case reviews to women suffering from vaginal mesh side effects, which may include debilitating pain, infection, inflammation, bleeding, pain during intercourse and even damage to nearby organs. These symptoms, when present, most often originate from erosion of the mesh into the vaginal wall. Surgical mesh is used in a transvaginal placement for pelvic organ prolapse repair and stress urinary incontinence. In 2011, the FDA issued a safety communication entitled "Update of Serious Complications Associated with Transvaginal Placement of Surgical Mesh for Pelvic Organ Prolapse", which declared transvaginal mesh side effects to be much more common than its earlier vaginal mesh side effects warning of 2008.
Transvaginal mesh placement is a relatively new alternative to other forms of surgery for pelvic organ prolapse repair. The FDA first approved transvaginal placement of surgical mesh for pelvic organ prolapse in 2002. Transvaginal mesh is considered a Class II medical device by the FDA, which allows a product to be approved for market without any human testing if they are similar to existing products already approved by the FDA. Nine separate companies manufacture surgical mesh today that is approved for transvaginal placement.
Transvaginal mesh lawsuits, which include the Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation cases in the United States District Court, Southern District of West Virginia (MDL Nos. 2187, 2325, 2326 and 2327) are not class action lawsuits. Each transvaginal mesh lawsuit is part of a Multi-District Litigation (MDL). Unlike class action lawsuits, where the plaintiffs split the proceeds of the lawsuit, transvaginal mesh MDL lawsuits, if successful, will result in each plaintiff in the lawsuit receiving an amount based upon her individual injuries and damages incurred. The Onder Law Firm‘s attorneys can answer any questions about an individual transvaginal mesh lawsuit during the free consultation.
The Onder Law Firm, a prominent national law firm with a long history of representing clients harmed by dangerous drugs and defective medical devices, is offering a free, no-obligation surgical mesh side effects claim review to women experiencing complications after transvaginal placement of surgical mesh. All transvaginal mesh lawsuits handled by The Onder Law Firm will be done on a contingency basis, with the law firm only receiving legal fees in cases where it is successful in collecting for its clients.
The Onder Law Firm welcomes surgical mesh inquiries from law firms in regards to handling them or working as co-counsel.
