      Transvaginal mesh affecting thousands of women

      Did you know that more than 4,000 patients have filed injury reports to the Federal Drug Administration between 2005 and 2010 for transvaginal mesh?

      The FDA estimates that failure rates for these devices may be as high as 10 percent and can result in serious complications

      Friday Attorney Bobby Garcia said this implant is a surgical mesh device used to treat pelvic organ prolapsed and stress urinary incontinence in women.

      But in recent months, the FDA and thousands of patients have been questioning the safety of these products; the FDA even issued a warning to patients and healthcare providers regarding the potential risks of this product.
