Transvaginal Mesh Attorneys Comment on Health Canada Concerns

The transvaginal mesh attorneys at Babbitt & Johnson P.A. explain Health Canada’s recent notice to all hospitals explaining complications of surgical mesh devices

WEST PALM BEACH, FL. June 2014 – On May 13, Health Canada issued an alert to all hospital and medical staff to inform them they are continuing to receive reports of complications including serious, life-altering ones associated with the use of the transvaginal mesh devices for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The update also includes recommendations for surgical mesh for SUI and POP procedures and for patient management.

As a firm who represents victims of defective transvaginal mesh products nationwide, Babbitt & Johnson P.A. believes that the Health Canada alert goes beyond helping medical staff better understand transvaginal mesh injuries.

The Health Canada alert sent to all hospitals focused on the following:

  • Recommendations for surgical mesh for POP and SUI procedures.
  • A list of complications and side-effects for healthcare workers to watch out for.
  • Recommendations for healthcare professionals so they can provide information to perspective mesh candidates regarding the procedures and devices.

Babbitt & Johnson, P.A. knows that transvaginal mesh injuries go beyond medical issues. They encourage people injured as a result of transvaginal mesh injuries, to speak to a transvaginal mesh attorney to determine if they be compensated for their injuries.
