Surgical Mesh Product Concern

Surgical Mesh Product Concern

More information has been released demonstrating a surgical mesh product concern for Boston Scientific. The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) is currently investigating Boston Scientific due to allegations that the manufacturer used counterfeit raw material in their surgical mesh products.

The mesh implants used to treat urinary incontinence and a number of other organ problems in women are already subject to litigation in the US. Ladies claim that the mesh has caused serious injuries and this will add to their surgical mesh product concern.

Though the FDA has said that Boston Scientific’s urogynecological surgical mesh may contain counterfeit material, the agency has stated that current data does not suggest that counterfeit materials were a contributing factor to adverse effects.

The FDA has not currently recommended that implants be removed, stating that “health care professionals and their patients should be aware of this investigation.”

Boston Scientific have denied the allegations and maintain that their product is safe. As it currently stands all mesh products remain on the market with FDA and MRHA approval.

What do I do if I have a Surgical Mesh Product Concern?

Our Solicitors for Women all female team are clinical negligence specialists in urogynaecological matters. We undertake surgical mesh product claims against doctors in England and Wales who fail to adhere to the GMC Guidance on consent, fail to inform ladies of the risks and complications and offer advice on alternative treatments.

If you have a surgical mesh product concern and are suffering from:

  • pelvic, genital or groin pain
  • infections and UTI’s
  • difficulty with sexual relations
  • recurrence of prolapse or incontinence
  • nerve damage
  • fistulas
  • scarring
  • mesh erosion
  • autoimmune disorders

Then contact us for free on 0800 470 2009 to find out if you have a claim.

So many ladies are told that the origin of their problems is something unrelated to the mesh, that their body has rejected it, that they failed to follow the guidance. This is simply untrue.

We have acted for ladies who were never told about the risks of mesh before a bladder sling was implanted – or that they were having mesh implanted at all.

Many are told that surgery would be a “quick fix” to their problems with no alternatives offered.

The majority of our ladies undergo painful revision surgery which in some respects can add to the problems and permanent damage caused.

If you would like to get in touch to discuss your claim then contact us on 0800 470 2009 or email Dr Handley at
