A medical device manufacturer named Sofradim has produced several transvaginal sling products. Unfortunately, some of Sofradim’s vaginal sling products have been alleged to cause serious medical injuries among patients who have received them.

Transvaginal Mesh Manufacturers Have Failed to Warn Patients of the Risks

Sofradim and other medical device companies have advertised their transvaginal mesh products as effective ways to avoid open surgeries. They have claimed that implanting vaginal mesh products through the vagina is a minimally invasive procedure with fewer risks than open surgery. Hundreds of thousands of women across the United States have received transvaginal mesh products to treat stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.

Many of the dangerous complications associated with receiving a transvaginal mesh products have been hidden from patients. Product manufacturers have failed to provide adequate warnings for their products. Even though several studies have shown that transvaginal mesh operations are less effective than traditional, open operations, medical device companies have continued to claim that their transvaginal mesh products are a safe alternative to surgery.

Patients: Sofradim Vaginal Mesh Devices Have Caused Dangerous Complications

Many women who received transvaginal mesh products are not aware serious risks caused by erosion. Erosion of the transvaginal mesh product is the most common cause of injury. Every year, women who received defective transvaginal mesh products discover that their mesh has eroded into the surrounding tissue. When erosion occurs, the mesh begins to penetrate and damage the patient's organs and surrounding tissue. As a result, the patient can suffer from sepsis, infections, and internal bleeding. Vaginal mesh products have been shown to perforate the patient's bowel, urethra, or bladder.

Patients who suffer from vaginal mesh perforation may require additional surgery to address the injuries caused by defective transvaginal mesh devices. In some cases, affected persons may need to undergo multiple risky open surgeries to remove the defective mesh and repair the damage to the surrounding tissue. Sadly, in some cases, the damage caused by the defective transvaginal mesh product is irreversible. Despite undergoing revision surgeries, some women discover that their incontinence is permanent and will last for the rest of their lives. Other women live with chronic pain that renders them unable to engage in normal daily activities.

I can't say enough great things about Matthew Arnold and his team. I had a very complicated, high-conflict case which took a lot of time and effort on everyone's part, and I feel like my case was given the time and attention it required.
