Modern Day Moms Publishes Vaginal Mesh Infographic
(New York, NY, March 30, 2012) Modern Day Moms, a Web site geared towards parents, has published on its site an infographic to educate the public about the history and current dangers posed by vaginal mesh products.
The infographic clearly and succinctly illustrates how several transvaginal mesh products, all of which became the subject of hundreds of lawsuits and were manufactured by different companies, attained FDA approval based on their similarity to a recalled device.
The infographic also features a timeline of significant events in the history of transvaginal mesh, details about the transvaginal mesh injury reports the FDA received prior to issuing a public alert stating that “serious complications associated with surgical mesh...are not rare,” and statistics illustrating the breadth and scope of the transvaginal mesh-injury epidemic.
On July 13, 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a warning specifically addressing the high incidence of complications occurring as a result of using mesh products and slings to treat stress urinary incontinence and Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) in women. According to that warning, the most consistently reported complication that occurred when using transvaginal mesh to treat POP was erosion: the mesh wore through the vaginal wall and exposed its rough and uncomfortable surface to the patient and her partner. Patients also reported instances of mesh contraction (shrinkage). Other reported side effects of transvaginal mesh included pain, bleeding, infection and urinary problems.
The infographic was commissioned by the Rottenstein Law Group, a personal injury firm that represents clients with claims stemming from the severe adverse side effects of surgical mesh.
