AMS Vaginal Mesh Complications

Vaginal mesh has been associated with so many injuries that the FDA publicly stated that they find no benefit of pelvic mesh over other forms of surgery for pelvic organ prolapse.  Injuries and problems linked to AMS vaginal mesh include:

  • Mesh erosion
  • Vaginal mesh contraction or shrinkage
  • Pain
  • Pain during sex
  • Infection
  • Perforation of nearby organs
  • Movement of mesh to other pelvic areas
  • Scarification
  • Fistulas
  • Granulomas
  • Urination pain
  • Pelvic organ prolapse recurrence
  • Incontinence

Types of AMS Vaginal Mesh

AMS makes more than one type of vaginal mesh, and each of them has been associated with pain, injury, and complications.  Many women who have been harmed by pelvic mesh wonder how such a dangerous medical device could have been approved.  AMS bladder slings were approved under the FDA’s 510(k) system, which grants approval without complete premarket testing if a medical device is “substantially equivalent” to another device that is already on the market.  Sadly, these original products often prove to be faulty after years of use and the flaws usually carry on to the later models fast-tracked through the approval process.

Names of AMS vaginal mesh products include:

  • AMS Perigee Vault Suspension System
  • AMS Apogee Vault Suspension System
  • AMS Elevate Prolapse Repair System
  • AMS Monarc Sling System

At the 2004 World Health Organization 3rd International Consultation on Incontinence, experts discussed the unreasonably high rate of complications and failures linked to all types of vaginal mesh, including vaginal mesh made by AMS.  This means that, as of 2004 (at least), AMS knew that their vaginal mesh could be dangerous.  However, putting profit and corporate greed above the safety of patients, AMS continued to make and market their vaginal mesh in various forms.

Medical device manufacturers have explicit responsibilities to the public: they must deliver a safe product, and they must clearly warn of any and all dangers associated with that product.  According to our defective medical device lawyers, AMS was grossly negligent on both of these counts.  It is our goal to bring AMS to justice, holding them fully accountable and financially responsible for their negligence.
