Trans Vaginal Mesh Patch- History of the Trans Vaginal Mesh
Between the years of 2005 and 2010, almost 4,000 vaginal mesh injuries have been reported to the Food and Drug Administration. In a 2010 article in the journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology, researchers stated that manufacturers had to cease a vaginal mesh clinical trial early because of the high number of vaginal mesh complications and injuries. This vaginal mesh trial was stopped when it was discovered that more than 15 percent of women who were implanted with a vaginal mesh suffered vaginal mesh erosion within three months of implantation.In 2011, the FDA issued a vaginal mesh warning to patients and physicians due to reports of transvaginal mesh complications. in 2011, the FDA cautioned that the risks of using the vaginal mesh can be treated without the use of a trans vaginal mesh.
Sept 8 2011.

This meeting comes at a time when consumer groups are calling for the widespread recall of surgical mesh due to severe complications.
Last week, during the meeting of the FDA Obstetrics and Gynecology Devices Advisory Committee in Maryland, the Committee indicated that they would support premarket testing of these devices.

A Doctors Comments On The Vaginal Mesh
“The implantation of contaminated synthetic mesh through the vagina defies basic surgical tenets because by definition it is not performed in a sterile manner. In fact so-called “mesh erosion,” the most common mesh complication, is in reality “mesh infection with chronic wound breakdown.” M Margolis M.D.

Statute of Limitations for Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits
The statute of limitations is different in different states. Florida has what is called the discovery rule which essentially starts the statute when you know that you are injured and that the injury is probably caused by someone’s negligence. Not all states have discovery rule and the statute, according to some vaginal mesh lawyers, will run from the date that the injury occurred (implantation or when the mesh started causing problems).
The year 2008 is important as that is when the FDA warning was issued. When was your mesh implanted ? When did you start having symptoms? When was your mesh implanted? All these are questions that need to be considered. Vaginal mesh lawyers may argue that the warning and associated press was not sufficient to put a person on notice of the relationship between the mesh and the injury. Some doctors are still telling women that it is not the mesh causing problems but something else (like a tumor) Some doctors are still using the mesh even after the 2008 warning. Some doctors are using the Prolene synthetic fiber mesh to this date even with the warnings and horror stories.
In short, according to many vaginal mesh lawyers, each case will rise and fall on its own and will be dependent on each individual state.
