Ethicon is a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson that focuses on the design, production, and marketing of various medical devices aimed at minimally invasive surgery. Among these various medical devices are a variety of transvaginal mesh bladder sling products. In the last few years, the United States Food and Drug Administration has issued multiple safety warnings regarding bladder sling devices, and many bladder sling lawsuit claims have been filed regarding the serious complications that can occur as the result of transvaginal mesh surgery for pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. Currently, Johnson & Johnson offers the following bladder sling devices:

  • Gynecare TVT Retropubic System Tension-Free Support for Incontinence

If you or a loved one has experienced bladder sling erosion or other complications following treatment with an Ethicon Gynecare device, you may be eligible for an Ethicon Bladder Sling Lawsuit. A bladder sling lawsuit is filed against the manufacturer of the mesh device and attempts to secure a financial settlement for the victim to help with the emotional, physical, and financial difficulties that arise from her injuries.

FDA Ethicon Bladder Sling Warning

In July of 2011, the United States Food and Drug Administration issued a news release safety warning about the surgical placement of mesh for the repair of prolapsed pelvic organs. This topic includes the various mesh bladder sling devices outlined above. The FDA’s news release stated that these bladder sling surgical devices introduce new risks that were not present in other surgical and nonsurgical treatment options for pelvic organ prolapse. Alarmingly, these Ethicon Bladder Sling complications come without any greater clinical benefit or augmentation to quality of life. As a result, some women choose to file an Ethicon Bladder Sling lawsuit in result to their injuries and complications.
