Erosion, which is cited in the study, is the most common side effect alleged.
NEW YORK, NY, September 17, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Transvaginal mesh is less effective than other surgical procedures used to treat pelvic organ prolapse, according to a study published on Sept. 11, 2013, in The Journal of the American Medical Association. The Rottenstein Law Group LLP, a vaginal mesh law firm, encourages those interested in more information on surgical mesh lawsuits and side effects to visit its Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits Center.
Surgical mesh eroded through the vaginal wall about 11 percent of the time over the course of the seven year research study, and "was less effective than desired as a standard criterion procedure for pelvic organ prolapse," according to the JAMA.*
"We hear from several women daily who believe they are suffering from the alleged side effects of transvaginal mesh products manufactured by a handful of companies," said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group LLP. "Erosion, which is cited in the study, is the most common side effect alleged."
Women are filing vaginal mesh lawsuits alleging they suffered adverse side effects such as pain, discomfort and difficulty having sex, in addition to vaginal erosion, according to court documents.**
The Rottenstein Law Group LLP encourages those who believe they have suffered from the alleged side effects of their transvaginal mesh implants to visit the firm's FAQ page at www.vaginalmeshlawsuitscenter.com/the-most-frequently-asked-tvm-questions/ for quick answers to questions about mesh harms and lawsuits.
