American Medical Systems In-Fast Ultra LawsuitJune 18, 2012
The In-Fast Ultra is a type of polypropylene mesh sling created by American Medical Systems for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence. This condition, stress urinary incontinence (SUI), is characterized by involuntary bladder leakage during physical activity and affects a large number of older women. SUI is the most common type of urinary incontinence, and happens as the result of weakened tissue in the pelvic area. The AMS In-Fast Ultra acts like a hammock that can support weak tissue and alleviate some of the pressure on the bladder and urethra that result in leakage. Alas, the American Medical Systems In-Fast Ultra is not always the permanent incontinence solution that it is presented to be. Transvaginally placed surgical mesh, like In-Fast, has been linked to serious physical complications and injuries as well as many lawsuit claims.
American Medical Systems In-Fast Ultra Complications
The complications that arise following surgery with American Medical Systems In-Fast can require revision surgery, IV treatment, hospitalization, and even blood transfusions to treat. Some women find themselves experiencing a much lesser quality of life than before they underwent the treatment. Frequently reported In-Fast Ultra complications include: mesh erosion, mesh protrusion, mesh extrusion, vaginal bleeding, vaginal discharge, pelvic pain, pain during sex (Dyspareunia), and even reoccurrence of stress urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse. Other complications that have also been reported are vaginal scarring, vaginal shrinkage, mesh contraction, neuro-muscular problems, perineal cellulitis, and others.
AMS In-Fast Ultra Lawsuits
Some women, who have suffered from injuries due to In-Fast Ultra treatment, file lawsuits against American Medical Systems. These lawsuits are filed on the basis that American Medical Systems did not properly assess the potential risks of their product and warn consumers prior to offering the product. Other companies that have had mesh lawsuit claims filed against them include:
- Boston Scientific
- Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon
- C. R. Bard
