Another transvaginal mesh lawsuit has been filed against the manufacturer American Medical Systems Inc., in the Southern District of West Virginia.
The issues with vaginal mesh began years ago, and in 2008, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issues a statement regarding the complications that can occur because of the device. The FDA noted that transvaginal mesh, which is used most often to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence, can become implanted or cause other serious side effects, requiring that it be surgically removed.
Approximately 30 to 50 percent of women may experience POP at some point during their lifetime.
