>>FREE CONSULTATION: Review a case with our ObTape Lawyers
Between 2003 and 2006, approximately 35,000 women who underwent a transobturator surgical procedure to treat stress incontinence and bladder leakage received a defectively designed ObTape vaginal sling manufactured by Mentor. Estimates have suggested that 17% to 18% of these women could suffer severe and debilitating complications, including infection, vaginal extrusions and urinary tract erosions.
Potential problems could occur months or even years after the sling is implanted. As a result, women have experienced severe pain, permanent disability and surgical procedures to remove the defective bladder sling.
Our ObTape surgery sling lawyers are evaluating potential cases throughout the United States for women who have experienced problems, including:
- Vaginal or Pelvic Pain
- Chronic Infections
- Severe Pain in the Back, Hips and Legs
- Vaginal Extrusions
- Urinary Tract Erosions
Although many women may not be aware of the exact type of sling used during their bladder surgery, our attorneys are investigating cases where problems have developed after surgery that are consistent with the complications associated with the Mentor ObTape Sling. Medical records can be obtained and reviewed to determine if problems experienced may be related to the defective sling.
There are no fees or expenses unless a recovery is obtained. To have your case reviewed by an ObTape lawyer, request a free consultation and claim evaluation.
