Massachusetts Woman Seriously Injured by Ethicon Transvaginal Mesh Device, Alleges Parker Waichman LLP in Lawsuit

New York, New York (PRWEB) August 29, 2013

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of victims injured by dangerous drugs and defective medical devices, has filed a lawsuit on behalf of a Massachusetts woman who alleges that a transvaginal mesh implant seriously injured her. The suit was filed on June 11, 2013, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia (Case No. 2:13-cv-14063) in the Multidistrict Litigation (MDL) In Re: Ethicon Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2327. Ethicon, Inc., Ethicon, LLC and Johnson & Johnson have been named as Defendants.

According to the Complaint, the Plaintiff was implanted with the TVT device on June 9, 2009. The implant was supposed to help treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and pelvic organ prolapse (POP), conditions caused by the weakening of the pelvic wall. Transvaginal mesh products are designed to help bolster the pelvic wall, as well as treat POP and SUI. The lawsuit, however, alleges that the mesh device was defective and had a flawed design that caused serious, and possibly permanent, injuries. The suit further alleges that the Defendant knew about the dangers of its product but chose not to warn consumers.

Thousands of transvaginal mesh lawsuits have been formulated into six MDLs pending in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia. The list is comprised of In Re: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2327; In Re: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2325; In Re: C.R. Bard, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2187; In Re: Boston Scientific Corp., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2326; In Re: Coloplast Corp., Pelvic Support Systems Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2387; and In Re Cook Medical, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2440.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reported on July 13, 2011, that the most common complications associated with transvaginal mesh may include:

  •     Mesh erosion through the vagina (also called exposure, extrusion, or protrusion)
  •     Pain
  •     Infection
  •     Bleeding
  •     Pain during sexual intercourse (dyspareunia)
  •     Organ perforation
  •     Urinary problems

The FDA also stated that complications linked to transvaginal mesh implants are “not rare” and warned that use of such devices may actually be more harmful compared to alternative methods for treating pelvic organ prolapse (POP).
