Thousands of transvaginal mesh and bladder mesh lawsuits are currently pending in the litigations underway in West Virginia. Court records indicate that plaintiffs claim such products were defectively designed and caused severe injuries. According to Wright & Schulte, vaginal mesh has been the subject of growing safety concerns and litigation since October 2008, when the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued a Public Heath Notification on Vaginal Mesh advising it had received more than 1,000 complaints over a three year period relating to vaginal mesh products. In July 2011, the FDA issued another alert, noting that it had received a total of 2,864 additional reports of complications with surgical mesh implants. The agency concluded that serious injuries associated with surgical mesh for transvaginal repair of pelvic organ prolapse, were “not rare,” and further advised that transvaginal prolapse repair with mesh “does not improve symptomatic results or quality of life over traditional non mesh repair.”

Last month, the state court jury hearing an Ethicon vaginal mesh lawsuit in New Jersey Superior Court awarded $11.1 million to a woman who suffered injuries due to the Gynecare Prolift vaginal mesh product. The total damage award included more than $7 million in punitive damages. (Gross v. Gynecare Inc., Atl-L-6966-10, Superior Court of Atlantic County, New Jersey (Atlantic City))

This past July, a California jury awarded $5.5 million to a woman who claimed to have suffered serious injuries from a C.R. Bard transvaginal mesh device. (Scott v. Kannappan, S-1500-CV-266034-WDE, Superior Court for Kern County, California)
