Vaginal Mesh Lawsuit Filed by Wright & Schulte LLC on Behalf of Iowa Woman Who Sustained Severe, Permanent Injuries Allegedly Due to Defective Ethicon Bladder Mesh
Date:5/31/2013

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) May 31, 2013

The product liability lawyers at Wright & Schulte have filed a Vaginal mesh lawsuit against Ethicon, Inc., a division of Johnson & Johnson, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia, Charleston Division (wvsd.uscourts.gov/). Filed on behalf of a woman from Iowa, this case (case no. 2:13-cv-04158) is part of MDL 2327 and was filed on March 4, 2013. According to the Vaginal Mesh Lawsuit, the plaintiff sustained serious injuries allegedly due to defects associated with the transvaginal mesh implant. This complaint also alleges that Ethicon, Inc. knew or should have known about defects associated with these bladder mesh slings and failed to properly warn the public about the risks of serious injuries associated with these implants.

Serious Vaginal Mesh Injuries
According to court documents, the plaintiff underwent surgery to have Ethicon’s transvaginal tape (TVT) implanted in April 2003 to treat her pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and her stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Subsequent to TVT implantation, however, the plaintiff developed severely painful complications and some permanent complications that allegedly impaired her quality of life.

According to an FDA vaginal mesh safety alert issued in July 2011, some of the serious complications and injuries associated with Ethicon’s TVT are pelvic and 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 SUI.

2011 FDA Warning Regarding Transvaginal Mesh Complications
The FDA’s July 2011 vaginal mesh warning was intended to alert the public that transvaginal mesh complications are more common than manufacturers had previously disclosed and that, in some cases, implantation of vaginal mesh devices was no more effective than traditional surgeries.

Specifically, the FDA stated in this warning that approximately 10 percent women who had transvaginal mesh devices implanted have developed or would develop severe complications that would necessitate revision surgery and possibly vaginal mesh removal within one year of implantation. In some of the worst cases reviewed by the FDA, women reportedly needed multiple revision surgeries to repair the damage caused by transvaginal mesh devices. This 2011 FDA safety alert was issued after the agency had completed a review of more than 100 studies focused on bladder mesh devices.

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 be effective at relieving the symptoms of prolapse.
