  • According to a July 13, 2011, FDA safety alert, complications linked to transvaginal mesh implants are “not rare” and the use of such devices may actually be more harmful compared to alternative methods for treating POP. The FDA has also asked 33 manufacturers, including Johnson & Johnson, to conduct post-market safety studies in order to investigate the effect of vaginal mesh on organ damage and other health concerns.

    Thousands of transvaginal mesh lawsuits have been filed in the United States. Many have been consolidated into five MDLs now pending in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia. The other MDLs are: In Re: Boston Scientific Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2326; In Re: C.R. Bard, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2187; In Re: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2327; and In Re Coloplast Corp. Pelvic Support Systems Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2387.

    The first transvaginal mesh lawsuit to go to trial led to an $11.1 million verdict in favor of the Plaintiff (Gross v. Gynecare Inc., Atl-L-6966-10, Superior Court of Atlantic County, New Jersey), according to a Feb. 28, 2013, Bloomberg report. The Plaintiff’s case was the first of 4,000 Gynecare Prolift cases expected to go to trial. Johnson & Johnson was ordered to pay $3.35 million in compensatory damages and $7.76 million for punitive damages.(/'/>"/>
