Who Manufacturers Mesh? American Medical Systems
American Medical Systems, now a part of Endo Health Solutions, has been manufacturing transvaginal mesh and sling devices for women’s pelvic health for years. They manufacture a number of products.
The following products are marketed by AMS for treatment of various types of pelvic organ prolapse:
- Elevate Prolapse Repair System
- Perigee (for bladder prolapse, or cystocele)
- Straight-In Sacral Colpopexy System
AMS also manufactures sling and hammock devices to treat stress urinary incontinence:
- MiniArc Precise Sling
- MiniArc Single Incision Sling
- In-fast Ultra
Currently there are over 6,000 cases pending against AMS in the multi-district litigation in West Virginia. Unfortunately, the women who were implanted with these devices had no idea that they would suffer sometimes irreparable damage. Many of these women have undergone multiple revision surgeries to try to fix or extract the mesh, many of them with minimal success.
If you have experienced such side effects, including pain during intercourse, bleeding, erosion, and pain during urination, you very likely have a claim against the manufacturer. Our attorneys are ready and willing to help you get on the road to recovery. You deserve compensation to help you deal with these unforeseen medical expenses and change in your daily lifestyle. Our compassionate, experienced attorneys can give you the immediate answers that you need.
