Olsman Mueller Wallace & MacKenzie, P.C. is joining a national effort to compensate women who have been injured by dangerous transvaginal mesh. This is a polypropylene mesh that is similar to the mesh used in hernia surgeries. Around 2007, several drug companies began encouraging physicians to use the mesh to treat bladder and vaginal prolapse. These companies did this without first doing studies or other testing to make sure that it was safe. The mesh was not safe, and it is causing a wide variety of problems for many women. In some cases, the mesh is moving (eroding) and penetrating into the bladder or vagina. In other cases, the women are experiencing constant, unrelenting abdominal pain. If you or someone you know may have received mesh during a prolapse surgery, contact us to see if you have a case. There are over a thousand cases currently pending nationwide.
