Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits Detail Horrific Complications


 
Law,Health,Business
Vaginal mesh lawyers are reporting that thousands of women who received transvaginal mesh devices to surgically treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI) have seen the quality of lives decrease significantly, allegedly due to serious vaginal mesh complications. Not surprisingly, American Medical Systems, Boston Scientific, C.R. Bard, Ethicon, and other medical device manufacturers are facing thousands of vaginal mesh lawsuits filed on behalf of these women. One of those patients, Yvonne, recently told WNYT News that her life has been a nightmare since her vaginal mesh surgery 10 years ago, ending her dreams of travel when her husband retired. “The reason I hate to take off on the road is because I've had to stop into hospitals and I've had to stop into doctor's offices I really didn't know at all because I was in such pain." Vaginal Mesh Recall Vaginal mesh devices were approved through a fast-tracked process known as 501(k) clearance, which speeds U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval with no clinical, human trials, if the device is significantly similar to an already-approved or “predicate” device. In 1999, a vaginal mesh recall was issued in 1999 for Boston Scientific’s Protegen. Ironically, the FDA continued to allow Protegen to be used as the predicate device for other 510(k) mesh approvals. In 2008, the FDA issued a Public Health Notification over serious vaginal mesh complications associated with POP and SUI surgeries. A little over two years later, the FDA issued an update after learning that these vaginal mesh injuries are not rare. In January 2012, the agency ordered vaginal mesh device makers to conduct safety studies of their products and an announced it was considering a proposal to ban 510(k) clearances for products in POP surgeries. In 2012, Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon unit did stop selling several Gynecare mesh devices, but said it was not doing so due to safety issues, and stated the sales suspension was not a vaginal mesh recall. Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits Since the FDA’s alert, thousands of women have filed vaginal mesh lawsuits against device makers in state and federal courts nationwide. The first vaginal mesh lawsuit involving an Ethicon product was decided in March 2013, with a New Jersey Superior Court jury awarding $11.1 million in damages to a women who received the Gynecare Prolift device. In the summer of 2012, a California jury awarded the plaintiff in a C.R. Bard lawsuit $5.5 million in damages. The first federal trial involving a C.R. Bard lawsuit is scheduled to begin in June 2013. There is still time for victims of vaginal mesh complications to bring claims against the manufacturers of these devices. However, it is important to first contact a vaginal mesh lawyer who is well versed in the nuances of this litigation. Maintaining records of all of your doctor’s appointments, lost wages and other related expenses is also critical to ensuring you are able to present a strong case.
