More Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits Filed as Two-Year Statute of Limitations for These Cases is Almost Up, Reports Alonso Krangle
Date:7/11/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) July 11, 2013

July 13, 2013 will mark the two-year anniversary of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) releasing a national warning regarding the serious risks associated with vaginal mesh implants. Because many states set their statutes of limitation for filing vaginal mesh lawsuits (also known as, Transvaginal mesh lawsuits, or Bladder Sling Lawsuits) against the various manufacturers of these devices at two years from the date of the FDA’s vaginal mesh warning, July 13 will also mark the end of that statute of limitations. This means that individuals who have claims against the makers of mesh slings and who reside in states with these statutes of limitations may not be able to sustain lawsuits against the vaginal sling makers after July 13.

This impeding deadline has led to more vaginal mesh lawsuits being filed against various manufacturers in federal court. In fact, while court records indicate that more than 16,000 vaginal mesh lawsuits have been filed in federal courts, in May and June 2013, more than 1,600 vaginal mesh lawsuits were filed against Boston Scientific alone. In addition to Boston Scientific, other manufacturers of vaginal mesh slings that have been named as defendants in similar lawsuits include C.R. Bard, American Medical Systems, Ethicon, Cook Medical, Inc. and Coloplast.

2011 FDA Vaginal Mesh Warning

The FDA’s July 2011 vaginal mesh warning highlighted the fact that vaginal mesh complications are not rare. In fact, in this warning, the FDA stated that, after analyzing the results of more than 100 vaginal mesh studies, it had discovered that about 1 in every 10 women with a mesh sling have developed or would develop serious complications. Some of the serious complications associated with vaginal mesh slings reportedly include urinary pain, pain during intercourse, vaginal scaring, mesh erosion through the vaginal lining, greater risk of infection, perforation of the blood vessels/organs surrounding the sling and recurrence of SUI.

In this warning, the FDA also explained that many of the reported vaginal mesh injuries required risky revision surgery and possibly the removal of the mesh sling within 12 months of implantation. In the worst cases, multiple revision surgeries were needed to try to correct the extensive damage allegedly caused by vaginal mesh devices.

Additionally, the FDA’s 2011 mesh sling warning highlighted the fact that women with vaginal mesh were more likely to develop serious complications than those who had undergone traditional surgery for POP and SUI and that vaginal mesh may not be effective at relieving the symptoms of prolapse.
