The vaginal mesh lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. represent women nationwide who are pursuing potential claims after experiencing problems with a bladder sling or transvaginal mesh product implanted for repair of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or female stress urinary incontinence (SUI). In addition to claims against other manufacturers, our law firm is also evaluating potential Coloplast mesh lawsuits, which have recently been consolidated as part of a new MDL in the federal court system.

Thousands of women have suffered debilitating and disfiguring injuries after receiving vaginal mesh or a bladder sling made by Coloplast Corp. or another manufacturer. These dangerous and defective products were never adequately tested and have been associated with:

  • Erosion of the Mesh Through the Vagina
  • Infection
  • Pelvic Pain or Vaginal Pain
  • Urinary Problems
  • Pain During Sexual Intercourse

Earlier this month, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation established a new MDL (multidistrict litigation) for product liability lawsuits over Coloplast mesh filed in courts throughout the United States.

While these cases will be managed during pretrial proceedings in a manner similar to how a Coloplast mesh class action lawsuit would proceed, each claim remains an individual case and if a settlement or other resolution is not reached in the MDL, the lawsuits may be remanded back to U.S. District Courts throughout the United States for individual trial dates.

This is the sixth separate MDL established as result of transvaginal mesh products, with other consolidated proceedings already in place for:


Many Coloplast pelvic mesh products, such as the Aris Transobturator Sling, were originally developed by Mentor Corp., the manufacturers of the Mentor ObTape Sling, which was one of the first transvaginal mesh products investigated by our lawyers four years ago.

Since that time, our investigation has been expanded several times and now includes any mesh or sling product implanted transvaginally for repair of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or female stress urinary incontinence.

Free and confidential consultations and claim evaluations are provided for women throughout the United States who suspect that they have experienced problems from Coloplast mesh or another similar product. While most women do not know the manufacturer of the product used during their repair surgery, our lawyers can obtain the necessary information to evaluate a potential claim and help determine if financial compensation may be available.
