Vaginal Mesh Lawsuit Filed against Ethicon, Inc. by Wright & Schulte LLC Alleges Georgia Woman Sustained Serious Injuries Due to Use of Transvaginal Mesh
Date:9/18/2013

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) September 19, 2013

The attorneys at Wright & Schulte’s have filed another vaginal mesh lawsuit against Ethicon, Inc., alleging that a Georgia woman developed debilitating injuries due to the defective design of Ethicon’s mesh. This transvaginal mesh lawsuit is part of MDL 2327 and names Ethicon, Inc., a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, as the defendant. As with previous vaginal mesh or bladder mesh lawsuits filed by Wright & Schulte, this case will be litigated in the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of West Virginia, Charleston Division.

Court documents for this vaginal mesh lawsuit explain the plaintiff had Ethicon’s Prolift+M implanted in October 2011 to treat her pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and/or stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Shortly after mesh implantation, however, the plaintiff reportedly began to experience some crippling complications that eventually required her to undergo revision surgery to remove Ethicon bladder mesh. Among the severe injuries that have been associated with use of Ethicon’s mesh include pelvic pain, urinary pain, pain during sexual intercourse, mesh erosion through the vaginal lining, an increased risk of infection, vaginal scarring and puncturing of the blood vessels or organs surrounding the mesh.

This lawsuit was filed in the wake of two vaginal mesh settlements just weeks apart. The undisclosed vaginal mesh settlements in federally-filed transvaginal mesh lawsuits were scheduled for trial in the multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia. According to court documents, the settlement were reached just a week after the jury hearing the first Avaulta bellwether trial in the federal litigation awarded $2 million to the plaintiff. (In re C.R. Bard Inc. Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2187))

Serious Mesh Injuries Are Not Rare, FDA Warns
As reports of severe mesh injuries began piling up, the FDA initiated its own investigation into the alleged complications associated with bladder mesh slings. After reviewing the findings of more than 100 mesh studies, in July 2011, the FDA issued a national alert to U.S. consumers, warning that bladder mesh complications are not rare. In fact, the FDA reported uncovering the fact that about 10 percent of women with bladder mesh have developed or would develop severe complications that would require revision surgery and possibly even extraction of the vaginal mesh within one year of implantation. According to the FDA, in the worst cases, multiple revision surgeries were needed to try treat the extensive, severe injuries caused by bladder mesh slings.

Additionally, the 2011 FDA bladder mesh warning reported that vaginal mesh devices had greater risks of complications than traditional surgery for treating POP and SUI and that vaginal mesh may not even be sufficient at alleviating the symptoms of prolapse.
