Transvaginal Mesh complications discussed by Beasley Allen lawyer Leigh O’Dell

This Ringler Radio podcast features Beasley Allen lawyer Leigh O’Dell to discuss serious complications associated with transvaginal mesh. This is a mesh used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. The mesh is inserted vaginally to shore up organs that may have dropped due to childbirth, obesity or age, and to support the bladder. The product is also often referred to as a bladder sling. However, reports of serious complications with the mesh have spurred the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to warn that other treatments may be more effective and that the use of transvaginal mesh should be carefully considered as high risk. Problems reported as a result of the mesh include neuromuscular problems, vaginal scarring or shrinking, erosion of the mesh through the vaginal wall, perforation of the bladder and other organs, incontinence, and painful sexual intercourse. There also have been reports of deaths linked to the mesh. Leigh talks with Ringler Radio host Larry Cohen and co-host Heather Anderson about the dangers, litigation, and physical complications associated with transvaginal mesh.
