Transvaginal Mesh


 

For a woman who has suffered from pelvic organ prolapse or incontinence (loss of bladder control), one of the common surgical procedures needed is a transvaginal mesh. Those conditions can be brought on by pregnancy, childbirth, age or a variety of other factors.

 

Often made of materials such as polytetrafluoroethylene, polypropylene, polyester fibers or stainless steel, the mesh helps supports a number of pelvic-area organs like the uterus, bladder, vagina, urethra, rectum or bowel. The implant’s purpose is to patch the abdominal hole so intestines and other tissues can’t interfere with the wall.

 

However, this surgical method has been known to fail in many instances. A defective implant can lead to harmful side effects including damaged nerves and blood vessels, infection, puncture of the bladder, intestines, bowel or other organs. More complicated surgeries may be required to fix these conditions, resulting in even more pain and suffering for the affected women. The unexpected side effects have been so frequent, that the FDA has considered classifying the implant as a high-risk device (class III—it’s currently classified as a moderate-risk device, or class II). If the new classification is implemented, that would mean more testing of the mesh and human clinical trials.

 

The increasing amount of cases being filed against health practices which have performed unsuccessful transvaginal mesh has led to numerous class action lawsuits. If you or a loved one has been affected by this surgical procedure in the state of Massachusetts, you may be eligible to file a claim as part of a class action, or you can file a claim individually.

 

For many women who have undergone an unsuccessful transvaginal mesh implant, the medical costs can be daunting due to the additional surgery(ies) required to reverse the negative effects. It is extremely important for a victim or family of a victim to track any medical care received as a result of a failing implant. These records will be used to show the unfair medical costs you’ve incurred.

 

A Boston personal injury lawyer can help you build a legitimate case in the event you or a family member has had to suffer because of a faulty operation. The Law Office of Frank Fernandez works with many Massachusetts residents who have been harmed by a transvaginal mesh implant.

I am happy that I chose Frank to be my lawyer, and I will choose him again in the future. Although we agreed that I will pay him more money if my case went to trial, but he did his best to get my case dropped, and in fact the case was dismissed, and I didnt have to go through a trial or pay him extra money. He did all the work and all i had to do was showing up in court, I didnt need to speak a word. Very impressing, Frank is someone you can trust, and I respect him and his work

Very honest. Accepted my case while I was in NYC. Explained to me exactly what will happen at minimum cost. First time I can say I met an honest attorney. As a business and real estate in NYC, I retained many attorneys whose goal was to maximize their fees. Mr Fernandez was very reasonable and upfront honest with his fee. Very highly reccomend.

Frank Fernandez should be the first call anyone makes within the Boston area for legal representation. As a working professional, I made a horrible mistake and I was arrested with the potential of spending a lot of time in jail with the potential to have charges escalated. His efforts saved me a lot of potential pain and grief. He came to my rescue when I had no family locally to help me out of the situation my actions caused.I was fortunate that I found him out of the chaotic choices that are out there. Frank is professional and cares about all of the elements which affected the outcome of my case. My life and my career are back on track and I could not have done this without Frank's ability to react and change the course of difficult decisions. Trust, integrity, honesty, alongside the ability to dig deep, are just some of the characteristics of the person who accepted my case in the middle of the night.If you need a sanctuary when you can only see your life taking a change for the worse, call Frank and explain the elements of your case. I've got his card in my car, my wallet, my desk when I've got the potential for any type of legal action. I know he's someone that I can depend upon.I'm not posting for sake of Frank's business, I'm posting to convey my thanks for a difficult set of circumstances that I'll not face due to his ability to think quickly and make reliable decisions in spite of the issues that resulted from my actions.
