Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits Update: Gynecare Prolift Mesh Lawsuit Center Reports on Vaginal Mesh Removal Study

Press Releases

The Gynecare Prolift Mesh Lawsuit Center provides a wealth of information about lawsuits against Ethicon for those who believe their mesh implants have harmed them.

New York, NY - December 10th, 2013 - Removal of vaginal mesh from women does not always get rid of mesh-provoked pain, according to a new study published in the December 2013 edition of Obstetrics & Gynecology journal. The Gynecare Prolift Mesh Lawsuit Center, a vaginal mesh lawsuits informational website, notes that while a lawsuit does not remove the physical pain associated with mesh it can provide provide financial compensation for harms suffered.

The study, “Symptom Resolution After Operative Management of Complications From Transvaginal Mesh,” looked at complications associated with the implantation of vaginal mesh to treat pelvic organ prolapse. The goal, according to the study, was to describe outcomes of the removal of problematic mesh.

What the researchers found was that while exposed vaginal mesh can typically be fixed surgically, pain and dyspareunia (“painful intercourse”) is usually only resolved with surgery in half of patients, the study said.

The Gynecare Prolift Mesh Lawsuit Center encourages those who believe their vaginal mesh implants have harmed them to visit the Center’s TVM page to learn more about Ethicon Gyencare Prolift vaginal mesh settlements and lawsuits, and to apply for a free case review.

Women are filing transvaginal mesh lawsuits alleging they suffered injuries from serious adverse side effects such as pain, discomfort and the erosion of the mesh implant.
