SILVER SPRING, Md. — Despite the thousands of lawsuits facing various transvaginal mesh makers for their defective product, the FDA has approved a new generation of mesh.
The California medical manufacturer Caldera Medical recently announced it received FDA clearance for its newest generation of the Vertessa® Lite Polypropylene Mesh. The mesh is being marketed for use in sacrocolpopexy – the name of the type of procedures used to install mesh as a means of treating or preventing pelvic disorders. The company describes this newest version of its mesh product – which was initially approved in 2013 – as being ultra light, flexible, and strong. It also says that because the mesh has larger pores it will be more easily accepted by the tissue and allow for its to be quickly integrated into the body with minimal rejection.
However, nowhere is there any mention of improved safety or durability. In light of the well-documented safety and health complication risks surrounding transvagainl mesh, this is surprising.
Dangers of Transvaginal Mesh
Transvaginal mesh initially seemed to be very successful, but patients soon learned that it exacerbated or caused the very pelvic disorders it was meant to prevent. The mesh has a tendency to erode and fail; this results in the muscles unable to hold the organs in place. The mesh has also been known to break off, which sends pieces elsewhere in the body. These mesh pieces quickly lodge into neighboring tissue. Overall the problems with the mesh cause pain, headaches, scarring, UTIs, internal bleeding, and other symptoms in addition to more serious ones such as pelvic prolapse.
It is surprising the FDA is continuing to approve transvaginal mesh products without ensuring the risks and complications are addressed. It is not surprising then that thousands of women are seeking legal recourse for their pain, suffering, and medical expenses.
