Transvaginal Mesh Lawyers In Illinois
Women who suffered mesh complications after undergoing pelvic organ prolapse repair surgery with a transvaginal mesh may have legal recourse.
On July 13, 2011, the FDA announced that patients undergoing pelvic organ prolapse repair with a surgical mesh may be at a greater risk for mesh complications than women pursuing other surgical treatments. Because the manufacturers of transvaginal meshes are alleged to have failed to warn patients and doctors about this increased risk, women suffering mesh complications may be able to file a claim seeking compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages.
