Wendy Fleishman Summarizes Serious Threat To Women's Health From Transvaginal Surgical Mesh
June 1, 2012
Millions of women have been implanted with transvaginal surgical mesh implants or slings, in surgical procedures to repair pelvic organ proplase (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The mesh is a form of plastic that has been linked to a high rate of serious complications.
“We believe this is a serious women’s health issue,” stated Lieff Cabraser attorney Wendy Fleishman. “Women throughout the country have filed transvaginal or pelvic mesh lawsuits seeking compensation for serious injuries, including erosion and extrusion of mesh, perforation of organs, vaginal bleeding, chronic infection, continued and worsening incontinence, pain and emotional distress.”
The lawsuits have been filed in New Jersey state court, as well as in federal courts throughout the United States.
In the video below, Ms. Fleishman summarizes the risks and injuries women have suffered from transvaginal and pelvic mesh.
