Bladder Mesh Sling Lawsuit Filed by Wright & Schulte on Behalf of an Iowa Woman Who Sustained Serious Injuries Allegedly Due to Defective Vaginal Mesh Implants
Date:5/1/2013

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) May 01, 2013

Wright & Schulte lawyers have filed a vaginal mesh lawsuit against Ethicon, Inc., a division of Johnson & Johnson, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia, Charleston Division [wvsd.uscourts.gov/ ]. Filed on behalf of a woman from Iowa, this case (Case No. 2:13-cv-04157) is part of MDL 2327 and was filed on March 4, 2013. Preliminary court documents allege that the plaintiff in the transvaginal mesh lawsuit had sustained serious injuries allegedly due to the defective transvaginal mesh implant and that Ethicon, Inc. knew or should have known about defects associated with these bladder mesh slings.

Serious Vaginal Mesh Injuries
The complaint explains that the plaintiff underwent surgery to have the Gynecare Gynemesh™ PS with Non-absorbable Prolene™ Soft Mesh and transvaginal tape (TVT) [ethicon360emea.com/products/gynecare-gynemesh-ps] implanted in January 2008 to treat her pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and her stress urinary incontinence (SUI). After having this bladder mesh sling implanted, however, the plaintiff developed severely painful complications that allegedly impaired her quality of life by causing her to sustain permanent injuries.

Among the serious complications and injuries reportedly associated with the Gynecare Gynemesh™ PS and TVT are pelvic and urinary pain, dyspareunia (pain during sexual intercourse), vaginal scaring, mesh erosion through the vaginal lining, an increased risk of infection, puncturing of the blood vessels/bowels/bladder and recurrence of SUI.

FDA Warning Concerning Vaginal Mesh Risks
In 2011, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an alarming warning that transvaginal mesh complications more common than manufacturers had disclosed to the public and that, in some cases, implantation of vaginal mesh devices was no more effective than traditional surgeries.

Specifically, the FDA found that approximately 1 in every 10 women who had transvaginal mesh devices implanted have developed or would develop serious injuries that require revision surgery and possibly vaginal mesh removal within one year of implantation. In some of the worst cases, women reportedly needed multiple revision surgeries to repair the damage caused by transvaginal mesh devices. This FDA announcement was the culmination of the agency reviewing more than 100 studies focused on bladder mesh devices.

Other significant points included in the 2011 FDA public warning were that vaginal mesh devices had greater risks of complications than traditional surgery for treating POP and SUI and that vaginal mesh may not even be sufficient at alleviating the symptoms of prolapse.
