    Since 2005, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has received at least 1,000 reports from women who have suffered severe health complications due to defective transvaginal patches.

    The patches were designed to support internal organs that are no longer supported by the vaginal wall due to childbirth.  However, many women have complained of severe side effects such as:

    Urinary Incontinence
    Severe Bleeding
    Pelvic Organ Prolapse
    Vaginal Scarring
    Bowel, Bladder and Blood Vessel Perforation

    In October 2008 and February 2009, the FDA issued a series of Public Health Notifications confirming the accuracy of these complaints against the patches.

    In addition to the resulting health complications, many women have had to undergo additional surgical procedures and various treatments such as IV therapy, blood transfusions, and drainage of hematomas or abscesses.

    Manufactures of transvaginal patches include American Medical Systems, Bard, Boston Scientific, Ethicon, Gynecare and Johnson & Johnson.

    Women who believe they are experiencing adverse health symptoms due to transvaginal patches are urged to seek medical attention as soon as possible and contact the medical provider who inserted the patch.

    If you or a loved one has suffered injuries resulting from the use of a transvaginal patch, you may be eligible to make a claim. Give us a call for a free consultation with a lawyer. Contact Carr & Carr Attorneys or call 877-392-4878.
