Transvaginal mesh linked to serious, life-altering complications for women

Many people use medical devices every day. For the most part these devices improve the life of those using them. But the medical device manufacturers in our country are so rich and powerful that they often times think they cannot be touched. This is why they will sometimes sell defective medical devices to the public. Attorney Gibson Vance, the host of the Beasley Allen Report, is joined by fellow Beasley Allen Attorney Leigh O’Dell to discuss defective medical devices, specifically Transvaginal Mesh. The mesh is implanted to treat problems such as stress urinary incontinence (often called a bladder sling in these procedures) and pelvic organ prolapse. However, the mesh has been linked to serious complications, including erosion into tissue and perforation of organs causing bleeding, pain and infections.
