First Vaginal Mesh Lawsuit Trials in Federal C.R. Bard Avaulta Mesh Litigation To Begin, Reports Wright & Schulte LLC
Date:4/8/2013

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) April 08, 2013

The Vaginal mesh lawyers at the experienced medical device injury law firm of Wright & Schulte LLC look forward to the start of bellwether trials in the federal litigation established West Virginia for vaginal mesh lawsuits involving C.R. Bard Inc.’s Avaulta products. According to a Court Order issued last month, four Avaulta mesh lawsuits have been selected for the litigation’s first bellwether trials, with the first scheduled to begin on June 11, 2013. According to Wright & Schulte, the bellwether vaginal mesh lawsuit trials, also known as a Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit, or Bladder Mesh Sling Lawsuit, may provide insight into how juries will weigh claims in similar transvaginal mesh lawsuits. (In re: C.R. Bard, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2187)

On October 20, 2008, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued a Public Heath Notification advising it had received more than 1,000 complaints over a three year period relating to transvaginal mesh products. In a second Public Health Notification issued on July 13, 2011, the FDA noted that it had received a total of 2,864 additional reports of complications. The agency concluded that serious injuries associated with surgical mesh for transvaginal repair of pelvic organ prolapse, were “not rare,” and further advised that transvaginal prolapse repair with mesh “does not improve symptomatic results or quality of life over traditional non mesh repair.”

Since the FDA issued its warnings on transvaginal mesh, thousands of women have filed lawsuits against the manufacturers of these devices.    In addition to the C.R. Bard litigation, four other vaginal mesh litigations are currently underway in the Southern District of West Virginia:

  •     In re: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation
        (MDL No. 2325)
  •     In re: Boston Scientific Corp., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation
        (MDL No. 2326);
  •     In re: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation (MDL No. 2327); and
  •     In Re: Coloplast Corp. Pelvic Support System Products Liability Litigation (MDL No. 2387).

In March, a New Jersey Superior Court jury weighing claims in the nation’s first vaginal mesh lawsuit involving an Ethicon transvaginal mesh device awarded more than $11 million in compensatory and punitive damages to a recipient of the Gynecare Prolift device. This past July, a California jury awarded $5.5 million to a woman who claimed to have suffered serious injuries from a C.R. Bard transvaginal mesh device.
