Transvaginal Mesh Multidistrict Litigation Update: Timeline Established for American Medical Systems’ Bellwether Cases, Notes Parker Waichman LLP
Date:6/12/2013

inkClick(this.href)">U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reports that the most common complications associated with transvaginal mesh may include:
  • Mesh erosion through the vagina (also called exposure, extrusion, or protrusion)
  • Pain
  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Pain during sexual intercourse (dyspareunia)
  • Organ perforation
  • Urinary problems

The FDA has stated that complications linked to transvaginal mesh implants are “not rare” and warned that use of such devices may actually be more harmful compared to alternative methods for treating pelvic organ prolapse. The FDA has also asked 33 manufacturers, including Johnson & Johnson, to conduct post-market safety studies in order to investigate the effect of vaginal mesh on organ damage and other health concerns.

Recently, the first transvaginal mesh lawsuit to go to trial led to an $11.1 million verdict in favor of the Plaintiff (Gross v. Gynecare Inc., Atl-L-6966-10, Superior Court of Atlantic County, New Jersey), according to a Feb. 28, 2013, Bloomberg report, which added that Gross’s lawsuit was the first of 4,000 Gynecare Prolift cases expected to go to trial. Johnson & Johnson was ordered to pay $3.35 million in compensatory damages and $7.76 million for punitive damages.
