American Medical Systems’ Transvaginal Mesh Caused Arizona Woman’s Injuries, Alleges Lawsuit Filed by Parker Waichman LLP
Date:7/10/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) July 10, 2013

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of victims injured by dangerous drugs and medical devices, has filed a lawsuit on behalf of an Arizona woman who alleges that a transvaginal mesh implant seriously injured her. The suit was filed on May 10, 2013, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia (Case No. 2:13-cv-11045) in the multidistrict litigation (MDL) entitled In Re: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2325. American Medical Systems, Inc. has been named as Defendant.

According to the Complaint, the Plaintiff was implanted with the MiniArc Sling in May 2011. The device was implanted in attempt to treat the Plaintiff’s pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The lawsuit, however, alleges that the mesh is actually defective, leading to serious and possibly permanent injuries. The suit further alleges that the Defendant knew about the dangers of its product but chose to not warn consumers in order to protect its own financial interests. The Plaintiff is suing for pain and suffering, emotional distress, and economic loss, and is seeking compensation for punitive damages.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reports that among the most common complications associated with transvaginal mesh include:

  •     Mesh erosion through the vagina (also called exposure, extrusion, or protrusion)        
  •     Pain        
  •     Infection       &nbs
