Boston Scientific Prefyx PPS (Pre-pubic System) Lawsuits

May 5, 2012

In the last couple of years, the United States Food and Drug has delivered multiple statements regarding bladder slings and other transvaginal mesh products. These FDA warnings have come as the result of reports of thousands of injuries in relation to transvaginal mesh treatment. Complications from mesh, including the Prefyx PPS system, can permanently reduce the quality of life and are sometimes untreatable even with multiple revision surgeries. Many women file lawsuits against the large medical device corporations, like Boston Scientific, that are profiting from these defectively designed and potentially dangerous products.

What is the Boston Scientific Prefyx PPS System?

The Prefyx PPS (Pre-pubic System) if a transvaginal mesh sling offered by Boston Scientific for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence. Stress Urinary Incontinence, or SUI, is a loss of bladder control during daily action that affects many women after childbirth. The Prefyx PPS sling is placed outside of the pelvic bowl in order to provide extra bladder support and eliminate urine loss. However, treatment of SUI with transvaginal mesh is known to pose additional risks to a patient despite the fact that it demonstrates no significant benefit over other treatment options. The injuries experienced by many women even compel them to file lawsuits against the company that manufactured and marketed the device, like the Boston Scientific Corporation.

Prefyx PPS Sling Complications

Although the transvaginal mesh implants are supposed to be a permanent surgical solution to repair weakened tissue, the FDA has found it to be a source of serious medical complications, some of which are irreversible. The following symptoms indicate that you may be suffering from bladder sling side effects:
