New Vaginal Mesh Safety Recommendations Issued

12-10-2011 02:49 AM CET | Politics, Law & Society

Press release from: Nadrich & Cohen, LLP

National law firm Nadrich & Cohen LLP is endorsing new recommendations issued by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the American Urogynecologic Society (AUGS) regarding the use of transvaginal mesh to treat pelvic organ prolapse in certain women.

In a joint statement, the two organizations called for physicians to limit their use of vaginal mesh only to high-risk women for whom other treatment methods would not be beneficial. The groups also strongly suggested the creation of a national registry to track patients who have or will receive a transvaginal mesh implant.

These latest recommendations come after the Food and Drug Administration issued new warnings about the safety of vaginal mesh in July 2011. Following the FDA’s warning, hundreds of women across the country filed lawsuits in state and federal courts alleging injuries caused by vaginal mesh side effects.

The women claim that vaginal mesh implants caused severe pain, scarring, infection, blood vessel damage, painful intercourse and other serious side effects. The FDA is currently conducting an ongoing safety review of these potentially defective medical devices. The first trials in the vaginal mesh lawsuits are not scheduled to begin until November 2012.

The law firm of Nadrich & Cohen LLP is urging any woman who has received or is contemplating a transvaginal mesh implant to visit their newly-established resource site at www.VaginalMeshLegalClaims.com. The site includes the latest news, updates and information for women who have filed or may be interested in filing a vaginal mesh injury claim. Visitors to the site may complete a confidential online contact form to schedule a free initial case evaluation. In addition, the firm’s vaginal mesh injury attorneys are available to discuss potential claims by calling 1-800-722-0765.

If you or someone you love has been injured by vaginal mesh, don’t hesitate to contact Nadrich & Cohen today. We are currently investigating claims from women in all 50 states and we are eager to discuss your case. Additionally, if you’re a woman who’s considering a vaginal mesh implant, please visit www.VaginalMeshLegalClaims.com to read up on the potential side effects and the ongoing vaginal mesh litigation.
