Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits Pick Up Momentum, According To Pulaski & Middleman, LLC
Date:8/1/2012

HOUSTON, Aug. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Last week, a jury awarded Christine Scott of Bakersfield, CA, and her husband, $5.5 million for pain and suffering, medical expenses and economic loss, in a case against C.R. Bard.  Ms. Scott had the Bard Avaulta Mesh implant surgery to correct a leaky bladder.  After a four year legal battle, Scott's case is the first in the nation against the maker of a pelvic mesh implant who claimed Avaulta knew their product was unsafe.

There are thousands of vaginal or pelvic mesh lawsuits against several manufacturers across the country. Filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission indicate 47,000 women have had the Avaulta Mesh implanted and 650 lawsuits are pending. Johnson & Johnson, maker of the Gynecare Prolift device, faces more than 1,400 lawsuits who claim the mesh causes significant pain, scarring, nerve damage and organ perforation.

In the Scott case, the mesh began cutting into her colon and tissue continued to grow through the tiny holes in the mesh. Since the surgery, Ms. Scott has had eight corrective surgeries.

Common side effects of vaginal mesh medical devices include pain during intercourse or urination, chronic pain, infection, urinary problems, bleeding, mesh migration, bladder and blood vessel perforation and additional corrective surgeries for repair or removal. Vaginal mesh attorneys are urging women who have been adversely affected by vaginal mesh implants to contact an experienced medical device lawyer.
