COLOPLAST CORP VAGINAL MESH LAWYERS
We are investigating claims on behalf of women who have suffered severe complications as a result of the Coloplast Corporation’s pelvic mesh, bladder mesh, and related mesh products. These are medical devices, commonly referred to as pelvic mesh and bladder slings, which are used in the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). These medical devices are made of polypropylene mesh. Unlike many other law firms claiming an expertise in this field, who are “collecting” cases, if we decide to take your case we will aggressively pursue it on your behalf. In fact, one of our attorneys was appointed as Co-Liaison Counsel by the Court to lead the action against Ethicon and Johnson & Johnson.
Coloplast Corporation manufactures numerous products, known as pelvic mesh, vaginal mesh, and bladder slings, designed to treat pelvic organ prolapse and/or stress urinary incontinence. These products include: Novasilk Synthetic Flat Mesh, Restorelle Smartmesh, Exair Mesh, Aris Transobturator (TOT) Sling, Minitape Sling, Omnisure Sling, Supris Suprapubic Sling and T-Sling with Centrasorb.
Coloplast Corporation Mesh Investigation
Our investigation indicates that vaginal mesh implants can cause mesh erosion into the vagina, bladder, colon, intestines and uterus, mesh shrinkage or contraction, mesh migration, mesh exposure, scar tissue formation, granuloma formation, infections, pelvic pain, urinary incontinence and development of urinary retention, dysuria (painful urination), dyspareunia (painful sexual relations), neuropathic pain, fistulas and recurrence of prolapsed organs, often leaving women with worse symptoms and complications than the conditions they were used to treat. These complications have decreased the quality of life many patients once enjoyed. Our Coloplast Mesh Attorneys have been actively pursuing and investigating cases involving complications related to Coloplast’s products.
In our view, Coloplast Corporation did not adequately disclose and warn of the significant risks of these products in their patient literature, patient brochures, and websites. These inadequacies deprived women of the opportunity to make informed choices as to how they wanted their treatable medical conditions to be repaired – and leading them to choose to have pelvic mesh permanently attached to the inside of their pelvis – often with catastrophic results.
Coloplast Mesh Complications
The most frequent complications from these transvaginal mesh products include mesh erosion into the vagina, bladder, intestines and uterus, mesh shrinkage or migration, scar tissue formation, granuloma formation, infections, pelvic pain, urinary incontinence and development of urinary retention, dysuria (painful urination), dyspareunia (pain with sexual relations), neuropathic pain, fistulas and recurrence of prolapsed organs. These complications have led to vaginal scarring and medical conditions that have significantly decreased the quality of life many patients once enjoyed. The failure of the Novasilk Synthetic Flat Mesh, Restorelle Smartmesh, Exair Mesh, Aris Transobturator (TOT) Sling, Minitape Sling, Omnisure Sling, Supris Suprapubic Sling or T-Sling with Centrasorband can also lead to the need for multiple operations to remove the mesh and to repair extensive damage caused by the mesh. In many cases the mesh cannot be completely removed, permanently compromising a woman’s health.
