Baron and Budd Still Accepting Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits Consumer Alert: It’s Not Too Late to File A Lawsuit for Health Issues Related Transvaginal Mesh Use Business Wire 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.
