Alleged Serious Injuries in Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits

According to the complaints, the 11 plaintiffs in these cases had some type of Ethicon vaginal mesh surgically implanted to try to treat their pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and/or stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Additionally, following surgery, however, the plaintiffs began to experience painful, crippling complications that ultimately became so bad that the women needed revision surgery to have the Ethicon bladder sling removed. The complaint further contends, some of the severe injuries that have been linked to Ethicon’s mesh slings include pelvic and urinary pain, pain during sexual intercourse, vaginal scaring, mesh erosion through the vaginal lining, an increased risk of infection, vaginal scarring, perforation of the blood vessels/bowels/bladder and recurrence of SUI.

Among the plaintiffs included in the recently filed Ethicon transvaginal mesh lawsuits are a Nebraska woman who had the TVT-SECUR implanted in October 2009 (Case No. 2:13-cv-12486); an Ohio woman who had the Prolift+M, TVT-Oturaror and Prosima implanted in September 2010 (Case No. 2:13-cv-11768); a Kentucky woman who had the TVT-SECUR implanted in June 2010 (Case No. 2:13-cv-11767); a Nebraska woman who had the TVT implanted in January 2004 (case No. 2:13-cv-11766); an Iowa woman who had the PROLENE Soft Mesh implanted in February 2005 (Case No. 2:13-cv-11764); a Massachusetts woman who had the Gynemesh and Monarch Subfascial Hammock implanted in May 2006 (Case No. 2:13-cv-11769); an Iowa woman who had the Gynemesh implanted in August 2003 (Case No. 2:13-cv-11762); a Georgia woman who had the Prolift+M implanted in October 2011 (Case No. 2:13-cv-11761); and three Iowa women who hadthe TVT-Oturaror implanted in June 2011, July 2006 and February 2006, respectively (Case No. 2:13-cv-11760, Case No. 2:13-cv-11765 and Case No. 2:13-cv-11763, respectively).

FDA Warnings Regarding Severe Vaginal Mesh Complications

In July 2011, the FDA warned U.S. consumers that bladder mesh complications are not rare. In fact, after reviewing more than 100 bladder mesh studies, the FDA found that about 1 in every 10 women with bladder mesh have developed or would develop severe complications that would require revision surgery and possibly even removal of the vaginal mesh within 12 months of implantation. In the worst cases, multiple revision surgeries were needed to try treat the extensive, severe injuries caused by bladder mesh slings.

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.
