Parker Waichman LLP Alleges Transvaginal Mesh Caused Serious Injuries in Tennessee Woman
Date:7/24/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) July 24, 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 Tennessee woman who alleges that transvaginal mesh implants have seriously injured her. The suit was filed on May 6, 2013, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia (Case No. 2:13-cv-10341) in the Multidistrict Litigation (MDL) In Re: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2327. Ethicon, Inc., Ethicon, LLC and Johnson & Johnson, American Medical Systems, Inc. (AMS) and Boston Scientific Corporation have been named as Defendants.

According to the Complaint, the Plaintiff was implanted with several different transvaginal mesh devices, including the Gynemesh/Gynemesh PS, AMS Peridee System with IntePro and Boston Scientific Lynx and Obtryx. These implants were 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 to treat POP and SUI. The lawsuit, however, alleges that the mesh devices were defective and had flawed designs that caused serious, and possibly permanent, injuries. The suit further alleges that the Defendants knew about the dangers of their products but chose not to warn consumers in order to protect financial interests. The Plaintiff is suing for pain and suffering, emotional distress, economic loss, and is seeking compensation for punitive damages.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reports that the most common complications associated with transvaginal mesh include:
