Defective Surgical Mesh Continues to Spark Patient Complications and Complaints
Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 18-Nov-2011
Although the use of surgical mesh among patients and associated complications continue to pose injury among the thousands of people fitted with the defective medical device, the FDA continues to receive complaints regarding the various mesh products.
Comprised of a synthetic material, the surgical mesh is often used for hernias, pelvic prolapsed and urinary incontinence. Though the issues in which the medical device is used to correct can be uncomfortable for patients experiencing them, the complications tied to defective mesh complications have bombarded the Food and Drug Administration with complaints of serious injuries.
The FDA began receiving complaints resulting from the use of surgical mesh as early as 2005, issuing a warning about the potential dangers associated with medical device, including; infection, serious scarring and pain.
In addition to experiencing the adverse side effects of the surgical mesh used for a variety of ailments, some patients claim they were never informed or educated about the serious risks associated with the potentially defective product. The most common side effect suffered by patients outfitted with surgical mesh is severe and sometimes excruciating pain, which can sometimes take patients years to associate with their mesh surgeries.
