Sofradim has multiple transvaginal mesh product lines that have been known to cause injury or medical concerns after they have been implanted. The company is one of multiple manufacturers of defective transvaginal mesh products that were designed for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. Sofradim’s failure to inform patients of the risks associated with its devices along with its failure to address known medical concerns makes the company liable for the cost of revision surgery, pain and suffering, lost wages due to the recovery process and any other costs associated with its defective products.
Transvaginal mesh products are advertised as an effective alternative to open surgeries that require minimally invasive procedures to implant for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. The complications that are associated with transvaginal mesh products are often hidden from patients and studies have revealed that their efficacy is lower than traditional operations. Sofradim’s products have not only failed to live up to their expectations, but have caused injury due to mesh erosion.
Mesh erosion is the most common cause of injury related to transvaginal mesh devices and it results in the mesh penetrating and damaging surrounding tissues and organs. Internal bleeding and infections may result from the erosion as well as perforations of the bladder, bowel or urethra. Revisionary surgeries are often required to address medical concerns that develop due to the defective devices and in many cases; multiple surgeries are required in order to remove the entire mesh and to repair the damage.
Medical Products Liability Attorneys Prosecuting Vaginal Mesh / Sling Complication Cases
The actions of Sofradim and its competitors are considered negligent due to their knowledge of and refusal to correct issues with their products that jeopardized the safety of their patients. Patients were not properly informed or educated on the risks associated with the devices and Sofradim continued to market the devices despite being aware of the possibility that the products would harm patients implanted with them. Women who have been injured by transvaginal mesh products may be entitled to compensation and should retain the legal counsel of an experienced medical product liability attorney.
