Johnson & Johnson Gynemesh LawsuitMay 2, 2012
Johnson & Johnson Gynemesh PS is a PS Nonabsorbable Prolene Soft Mesh used to treat patient who suffer from vaginal wall prolapse, a type of Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP). When a woman has vaginal wall is weakened, the result can be that pelvic organs sink lower than their normal placement and can even protrude through the vagina. Gynemesh works to reinforce weak tissue and strengthen the pelvic floor by providing mechanical support and acting as a bridging material. Unfortunately Johnson & Johnson Gynemesh as well as all other varieties of transvaginal surgical mesh has been warned against recently by the US Food and Drug Administration. It is believed that transvaginal mesh bladder slings have much higher rates of injury and complication when compared with other treatment options. Furthermore, vaginal mesh does not appear to provide any clear benefit over these other pelvic organ prolapse treatments. As a result, many personal injury lawsuit claims have been filed against the four major manufacturers of transvaginal mesh devices: Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon, Boston Scientific, American Medical Systems, and C. R. Bard.
Gynecare Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit Claims
When a patient is harmed or experiences injury as the result of a medical device or surgical treatment like Gynemesh, often they will file a lawsuit claim. In the case of Gynemesh, a lawsuit would most likely be filed against the manufacturer of the device, Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon. This transvaginal mesh lawsuit claim would assert that the company did not adequately test their product and warn the consumer of all of the potential risks associated with using the product. Many women who experience transvaginal mesh side effects and complications find both their quality of life as well as their ability to work and earn an income negatively affected, and a bladder sling lawsuit settlement can help offset some of the corresponding financial challenges.
