Covidien Transvaginal Mesh Implants Complication Lawyer

Transvaginal Mesh CovidienCovidien is the manufacturer of multiple forms of transvaginal mesh that it advertises for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary continence. Despite the company’s assertion that its implants are more effective than traditional surgery, case studies have shown that the mesh products Covidien are not only less effective than the traditional alternative, but that they are the cause of severe complications. Covidien’s misleading claims and failure to address the health concerns related to its transvaginal mesh products signal that the company may be held liable for any harm the products have caused the patients who had them implanted.

Multiple Defective Product Lines

Covidien has four different transvaginal mesh products that are designed for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence which have proven to be a defective medical device and may cause undue injury to those implanted with them.

  • IVS Tunnelar Intra-Vaginal Sling
  • IVS Tunnelar Placement Device
  • IVS Tunnelar Parietene Polyproylene Mesh
  • IVS Tunnelar Surgipro Polyproylene Surgical Mesh

The claims made by Covidien are that its slings and mesh offer a less invasive and more effective alternative to traditional surgery. These claims have since been proven false and the products have been the cause of severe and life threatening conditions such as perforation of the urethra, bowel or bladder, internal bleeding, infection of surrounding tissue or organs and septic shock, which occurs when an infection reaches the bloodstream.

Required Corrective Surgeries To Remove Mesh and Repair Damage

It has been required in many cases for women to undergo additional surgery both to remove defective mesh products and to repair the damage they have caused. If left untreated, conditions such as perforations of the bowel, bladder or urethra can result in tissue death, organ failure and death. Once detected, these conditions require immediate surgery and it may even take multiple surgeries to fully remove the mesh.

Covidien is one of multiple manufacturers of transvaginal mesh products that has come under fire for its deceptive business practices in that it hid the risks associated with its products and made false claims about the products’ effectiveness. This level of negligence makes Covidien liable for the cost of removing its devices, the pain, suffering and shame caused by multiple corrective procedures and any costs associated with the patients’ recoveries.

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
