In fact, according to the New Jersey Atlantic County Superior Courts’ online Case List, 2,853 Gynecare bladder mesh lawsuits have been filed against Ethicon as of May 30, 2013. [judiciary.state.nj.us/mass-tort/pelvicmesh/gynecare/gynecare-case.pdf May 2013] These transvaginal mesh lawsuits allege that the design of Ethicon’s Gynecare bladder mesh slings caused the plaintiffs to sustain severe and, at times, permanent injuries and that Ethicon was allegedly negligent in failing to warn medical professionals and the public about the risks associated with its vaginal mesh slings.

Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits and Injuries
Concerns regarding the potential dangers associated with Gynecare mesh slings and other Ethicon bladder mesh implants have been piling up ever since the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) first warned the public about the risks of severe complications associated with these devices. Specifically, some of the serious problems that are reportedly associated with Ethicon’s Gynecare slings and that were included in the FDA’s October 2008 mesh warning 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 stress urinary incontinence (SUI). [fda.gov/medicaldevices/safety/alertsandnotices/publichealthnotifications/ucm061976.htm October 2008]
This growing public awareness regarding Ethicon Gynecare mesh sling complications again captured national attention and sparked widespread concern in July 2011 when the FDA issued a another mesh sling warning. At that time, the FDA announced that about 10 percent of women with a mesh sling have developed or would develop serious complications and that many women with serious transvaginal mesh complications required or would require invasive revision surgery and possibly the removal of the mesh sling within one year of implantation.
