Date:10/19/2013

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) October 19, 2013

A vaginal mesh lawsuit has recently been filed by Wright & Schulte’s attorneys on behalf of an Iowa woman who reportedly suffered severe injuries due to the allegedly defective design of Ethicon’s mesh. This transvaginal mesh lawsuit (Case No. 2:13-cv-11760), which is part of MDL 2327 names Ethicon, Inc., a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, as the defendant. As with previous vaginal mesh lawsuits and bladder mesh lawsuits filed by Wright & Schulte, this mesh lawsuit will be heard in the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of West Virginia, Charleston Division.

Irreversible Injuries Alleged in Vaginal Mesh Lawsuit

According to the complaint, the plaintiff had Ethicon’s TVT-Oturaror implanted in June 2011 to treat her pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and/or stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Within months following the mesh implantation, however, the plaintiff reportedly developed a number of painful complications that eventually became so crippling that she had to undergo corrective surgery to remove Ethicon vaginal mesh. According to an FDA notification, the severe injuries that have been associated with use of Ethicon’s mesh slings include pelvic and 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.

FDA Warns Women about the Prevalence of Mesh Complications

In July 2011, the FDA warned U.S. consumers that bladder mesh complications are not rare. In fact, the FDA reported uncovering the fact that about 10 percent of women with bladder mesh or vaginal 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. These FDA findings were the result of officials reviewing the results of more than 100 bladder mesh studies that have been conducted by various researchers worldwide. 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.

Other significant points included in the 2011 FDA public warning were 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.
