Caldera Surgical Mesh Complication Lawyer

Surgical Mesh CalderaUnlike the transvaginal mesh used to treat pelvic organ prolapse, the Caldera Desara mesh was designed specifically to address stress urinary incontinence, a common condition in women who are overweight, pregnant or who have recently given birth. What it shares with other transvaginal mesh products is that it causes similar health concerns. The Desara mesh has been reported to cause urinary tract infections, tissue damage associated with mesh erosion, difficulty urinating and perforation of the urethra. Caldera is a defendant in a growing mass tort involving multiple manufacturers of transvaginal mesh products because of its failure to inform patients about the risks associated with the mesh as well as its failure to improve its product to avoid injuring patients.

Failure to Inform Patients of Risk

One of the most damaging claims against Caldera and other companies that produce transvaginal mesh is that the companies were fully aware of the risk of injury that their products carry. The women who underwent procedures to address stress urinary incontinence were assured that the Desara mesh would be a more effective means of solving their problems. It was later discovered that these were false claims and the mesh has contributed to serious and sometimes life threatening conditions. In the event that a patient suffers from a perforated urethra or tissue damage caused by the erosion of the mesh, it is possible for the woman to develop infections or go into septic shock when bacteria reach the bloodstream.

The Need for Additional Surgery

In order to correct the damage caused by harmful mesh products, patients must undergo additional surgeries both to remove the mesh and to repair tissue damage or perforations to the urethra. It is not uncommon for women to require multiple surgeries, which take their toll both on the woman’s health and her finances. Additional pain and suffering results from the procedures and women must endure embarrassment and shame that they were hoping to avoid by electing to have the original procedure performed in the first place.

Client Reviews
Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld. Michonne Proulx
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong
This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim
Jonathan helped my family heal and get compensation after our child was suffered a life threatening injury at daycare. He was sympathetic and in constant contact with us letting us know all he knew every step of the way. We were so blessed to find Jonathan! Giulia
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
