Democrats Call For Transvaginal Mesh Investigation
Serving Alabama, Mississippi & Florida including Mobile, Pascagoula, Gulfport, Biloxi & Pensacola
House Democrats from the House Energy and Commerce Committee sent a letter to the Republicans who control the Committee urging them to hold hearings on the safety of transvaginal meshes. Bloomberg reports that U.S. Representative Henry Waxman and three other representatives sent the letter asking for a hearing and demanding documents from manufacturers. Earlier this month, the FDA ordered Johnson & Johnson and other manufacturers of transvaginal mesh to conduct safety studies after receiving reports of internal injuries associated with use of the vaginal implants.
