The ObTape vaginal sling, which was manufactured and designed by Mentor Corporation, was utilized in over 30,000 women between 2003 and 2006 as a viable treatment option for stress urinary incontinence (SUI).
The ObTape sling was designed to prevent incontinence or leaking caused by weakened muscles around the bladder and urethra. The product utilizes surgical mesh which is non-woven. This feature allegedly causes serious complications because oxygen and nutrients are unable to be absorbed by the surrounding tissue.
A study published in the Journal of Urology in October 2006 highlighted the risk of complications associated with the ObTape sling. Since that time, over 10% of the women who utilized the product for SUI, suffered complications with vaginal extrusions and many more cases involving vaginal discharge and abscesses were also reported.
Other symptoms of a Mentor ObTape Sling injury are:
- High fever
- Vaginal or Pelvic Pain
- Pain During Sex
- Chronic Infections
- Perineal Cellulitis
- Severe Pain in the Back, Hips and Legs
Many women who received the ObTape vaginal sling required extensive surgery to remove the tape, and now suffer permanent injury which may have been prevented if a different bladder sling was used. Mesh Case Funding assists women who were implanted with Mentor ObTape mesh products to treat SUI and suffered severe internal complications from their use.
Mentor ObTape Lawsuit Funding
Lawsuits allege Mentor knew or should have known the risk of complications with their transvaginal sling products made from non-woven mesh, but continued to promote the product as a safe treatment for stress urinary incontinence (SUI).
These lawsuits allege Mentor ObTape was negligent in the design, promotion and sale of their transvaginal sling product and the manufacturer knew or should have known that use of the Mentor ObTape could result in severe complications.
Because the manufacturer failed to adequately research the product to ensure similar complications were not possible, Mentor may be negligent under various product liability laws.
Plaintiffs are likely to recover large awards for their pain and suffering against Mentor ObTape and other manufacturers. Unfortunately, litigation of this type takes time and while the process drags on, victims encounter physical, emotional and economic hardship. A bit of money can help ease these conditions.
