Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit Filed by Wright & Schulte Alleges that Boston Scientific’s Defective Mesh Sling Caused New York Woman to Suffer Serious, Irreversible Injuries
Date:6/13/2013

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) June 13, 2013

Wright & Schulte lawyers have filed a transvaginal mesh lawsuit against the Boston Scientific Corporation on behalf of a woman from New York. This Vaginal Mesh Lawsuit or Bladder Mesh Lawsuit (case no. 2:13-cv-04154) is part of MDL 2326 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia, Charleston Division. According to the Vaginal Mesh lawsuit, the plaintiff alleges that the inherently dangerous design of Boston Scientific’s transvaginal mesh sling caused her to sustain painful and some permanent complications that negatively impacted her quality of life. Additionally, this bladder mesh lawsuit alleges that Boston Scientific was negligent in failing to warn the public about the risks of serious injuries associated with its transvaginal mesh slings.

Injuries Alleged in this Vaginal Mesh Lawsuit

Court documents for this case (case no. 2:13-cv-04154) contend that, in August 2005, the plaintiff had Boston Scientific’s Obtryx Transobturator Mid-Urethral Sling System surgically implanted in her lower abdominal region. The woman had undergone this surgery to try to treat her pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Within the weeks and months following her surgery, however, the plaintiff began developing painful complications that, ultimately, required her to undergo revision surgery to have the device removed. Court documents for this case also explain that the Boston Scientific knew or should have known about the risk of severe injuries and complications associated with its Obtryx Sling System and that the manufacturer nevertheless did not adequately alert the public about these potential dangers.

Severe problems that have reportedly been linked to Boston Scientific’s Obtryx Sling System and other transvaginal mesh implants are alleged to include urinary pain, pain during intercourse, vaginal scaring, mesh erosion through the vaginal lining, an increased risk of infection, puncturing of the blood vessels/bowels/bladder and recurrence of SUI.

FDA Warning Regarding Serious Bladder Mesh Complications

In July 2011, the FDA issued a nationwide warning to highlight the fact that bladder mesh complications are not rare. Specifically, after studying upwards of 100 studies on mesh slings, the FDA came to the conclusion that about 1 in every 10 women with a mesh sling has developed or would develop serious complications. The FDA also stated in its 2011 warning that many of mesh sling injuries required risky revision surgery and possibly the removal of the mesh sling within one year of implantation. In the worst cases, some women had to undergo multiple corrective surgeries to treat the severe complications allegedly caused by the defective vaginal mesh devices.

Additionally, the FDA’s 2011 bladder mesh sling warning pointed out that women with vaginal mesh slings were more likely to experience 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.
