American Medical Systems MiniArc Lawsuit

June 12, 2012

The Willis Law firm is currently evaluating lawsuit claims by women who have been injured as the result of transvaginal mesh products. One particular product that we are investigating is the MiniArc Single-Incision Sling from American Medical Systems.  Transvaginal mesh slings are used in the treatment of several different medical conditions including pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. Our firm takes all transvaginal mesh victim clients on a contingency fee basis, which means that you will not be responsible for any of the fees related to your case unless a recovery is obtained in your favor.

What is the American Medical Systems MiniArc Sling?

The MiniArc Single-Incision Sling is a surgical device offered by American Medical Systems for the treatment of Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) in female patients. Stress incontinence is the most frequently experienced type of urinary incontinence in mature women. AMS MiniArc attempts to restore lost bladder control while simultaneously being minimally invasive and easy to implant. Unfortunately, the polypropylene mesh used in the composition of the sling has been warned against in recent safety communications by the FDA. American Medical Systems has also been targeted by lawsuit claims that the device has resulted in injury to patients.

Complications from the AMS MiniArc Sling

The most common complaint following American Medical Systems MiniArc Sling (and other transvaginal mesh) procedures is the erosion of the device into the vaginal, bladder, uterus, and intestines. This occurrence is extremely painful as well as difficult to treat because polypropylene mesh can break apart into smaller pieces while inside the body. Additionally, pelvic pain, bleeding, mesh shrinkage, neuromuscular difficulties, and emotional problems have also been reported by patients treated with American Medical Systems and other mesh products. These various physical side effects can often result in an inability to work & support oneself, so filing a lawsuit claim is one way to help with these expenses.
