DALLAS -- July 22, 2013

Baron and Budd, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of
consumers, is still handling lawsuits related to transvaginal mesh.
Transvaginal mesh is a surgical mesh that is used to create a pelvic or
bladder sling to help reinforce the vaginal wall. Most commonly, transvaginal
mesh is used to treat two conditions that occur in women: stress urinary
incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. However, transvaginal mesh erosion can
allegedly result in and cause organ perforation, bleeding, infection, pain,
urinary problems and other significant health problems.

“We want women to know that it’s not too late to file a lawsuit for problems
they have allegedly suffered because of transvaginal mesh use,” said Russell
Budd, managing shareholder and president of Baron and Budd. “Despite the
issues that have now been discovered, transvaginal mesh has not been
completely recalled from the market.”

Introduced in the 1990s, transvaginal mesh was developed to permanently fix
significant pelvic organ issues. However, significant issues with the mesh
have appeared. These alleged issues often require corrective surgery. However,
removing the transvaginal mesh is difficult because tissue grows in and around
the mesh. Because of this, transvaginal mesh removal surgery is often needed
multiple times. Additionally, complete surgical removal of the mesh is often
dangerous, painful and expensive.

The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) has issued numerous warnings regarding
the many issues related to transvaginal mesh. One warning was issued in 2008,
when the FDA publicly listed the dangerous side effects associated with
transvaginal mesh corrective surgery. In 2011, the FDA warned surgeons and
patients that using the mesh puts patients at a greater risk than other
treatment options available. A report by the FDA, released in July 2011,
uncovered that transvaginal mesh surgeries between 2008 and 2010 caused
thousands of injuries.
