FDA Gynecare Prolift Mesh Recall Warnings
As early as October of 2008, the FDA was already warning healthcare practitioners about the complications linked with transvaginal mesh used to treat stress urinary incontinence. The warnings stemmed from higher reports of adverse events in patient who had received treatment with such devices, including Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon Gynecare TVT Abbrevo Continence System. In the years since this initial warning, additional FDA communications have been made regarding transvaginal mesh complications, and it has been determined that mesh erosion and other adverse events are “not rare.” Often times, revision surgery and hospitalization are necessary in order to treat patients who suffer from mesh complications and side effects. Gynecare lawsuits are one option for helping patients pay for such expensive treatment and care.
