Wright & Schulte LLC Files Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit on Behalf of Woman Allegedly Injured by Align Urethral Support System

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) December 10, 2012

Wright & Schulte LLC, a leading nationwide law firm and Ohio personal injury law firm, has filed a transvaginal mesh lawsuit on behalf of a woman who sustained serious injuries, allegedly due to C.R. Bard’s Align Urethral Support System. The complaint, which was filed on October 22, 2012, in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia, is one of scores of transvaginal mesh lawsuits pending in the C. R. Bard, Inc. Pelvic System Products Liability Litigation (MDL 2187) underway in the Southern District of West Virginia. (Case No. 2:12-cv-06890)

The safety of transvaginal mesh products like the C.R. Bard Align Urethral Support System are currently being reviewed by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), which is considering a recommendation made by its Obstetrics-Gynecology Devices Panel in September 2011 to reclassify transvaginal mesh used in pelvic organ prolapse repair from Class II to Class III. In January, the agency ordered the manufacturers of transvaginal mesh products, including C.R. Bard, to conduct post-market studies of their devices to assess their safety.

On October 20, 2008, the FDA issued a Public Heath Notification that described over 1,000 complaints that had been reported over a three year period relating to transvaginal mesh products. By the time the agency issued a second Public Health Notification on July 13, 2011, it had received an additional 2,864 reports of complications associated with the use of transvaginal mesh. The agency concluded that serious injuries associated with surgical mesh for transvaginal repair of pelvic organ proplapse, including neuromuscular problems, vaginal scarring/shrinkage and emotional problems, were “not rare”. The FDA further concluded that transvaginal POP repair with mesh “does not improve symptomatic results or quality of life over traditional non mesh repair.”

In addition to the litigation involving C.R. Bard, four other transvaginal mesh multidistrict litigations are pending in the Southern District of West Virginia before Judge Joseph R. Goodwin, including : In re: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation (MDL No. 2327), In re: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation (MDL No. 2325); In re: Boston Scientific Corp., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation (MDL No. 2326); and In Re Coloplast Corp. Pelvic Support Systems Products Liability Litigation. Additional transvaginal mesh lawsuits have also been filed in state courts throughout the U.S. 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
