Bladder Slings

Bladder Sling Complications

Act Quickly - Call Our Pittsburgh Defective Medical Device Lawyers Today

Over the last few decades, bladder slings have been a popular method of treating stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Women suffer from this condition more often than men, due to differences in anatomy, as well as the effects of childbirth and aging. SUI causes the individual to urinate (often minimally) after something as minor as sneezing, coughing or laughing. The bladder sling is a small section of surgical mesh that is implanted around the bladder to support it during daily activity, preventing incontinence. This is implanted surgically. It can also be used to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP), a condition that occurs when female organs move in the pelvic floor.

Defective Bladder Sling Lawsuits — Holding Manufacturers Accountable

Serious medical issues and side effects have been found to arise following this procedure. Over time, the mesh can deteriorate with bits moving into other parts of the body or even implanting in other organs. In some cases, the entire mesh has migrated.

The sling can also cause serious side effects such as difficulty urinating, painful sex, internal bleeding and severe pain in the pelvic floor area.

Manufacturers of these products released slings that were originally intended for hernia treatment in men. The materials used, however, can be harmful to women, given muscular differences.

Women throughout the United States have filed lawsuits against the manufacturers for the debilitating pain and side effects that they have suffered — often far worse than the issue the mesh was intended to treat.

At Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C., of Pittsburgh, our Pittsburgh defective medical device attorneys understand the severe impact these products have had on the lives of women, and our attorneys are committed to holding the manufacturers accountable. We provide compassionate representation as you file a claim.
