A transvaginal mesh lawsuit has been filed by Wright & Schulte against the Boston Scientific Corporation. This case alleges that the Boston Scientific Corporation failed to adequately warn the public about the risks of serious injuries associated with its transvaginal mesh implants.
Wright & Schulte lawyers have filed a Vaginal Mesh Lawsuit, also known as a Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit, or Bladder Mesh Sling Lawsuit, against the Boston Scientific Corporation in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia, Charleston Division. Filed on behalf of a woman from Georgia, this case (Case No. 2:13-cv-03365) is part of MDL 2326 and was filed on February 23, 2013. Preliminary court documents allege that the plaintiff had sustained serious injuries allegedly due to the defective vaginal mesh implant and that the Boston Scientific Corporation knew or should have known about defects associated with these bladder mesh slings.

Serious Vaginal Mesh Injuries
The complaint explains that the plaintiff underwent surgery to have the Lynx™ Suprapubic Mid-Urethral Sling System featuring Advantage™ Mesh implanted in December 2007 to treat her pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and her stress urinary incontinence (SUI). However, following implantation, the plaintiff developed severely painful complications that allegedly impaired her quality of life by causing permanent injuries.

Some of the severe injuries reportedly associated with the Lynx™ Suprapubic Mid-Urethral Sling System are pelvic and urinary pain, dyspareunia (pain during sexual intercourse), vaginal scaring, mesh erosion through the vaginal lining, an increased risk of infection, puncturing of the blood vessels/bowels/bladder and recurrence of SUI.
FDA Warning Concerning Vaginal Mesh Risks
After reviewing more than 100 studies focused on vaginal mesh devices, in 2011, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released a public warning announcing that transvaginal mesh complications more common than manufacturers had let on and that, in some cases, implantation of vaginal mesh devices was no more effective than traditional surgeries. Specifically, the FDA found that approximately 10 percent of women who had transvaginal mesh devices implanted have developed or would develop serious injuries that require revision surgery and possibly vaginal mesh removal within one year of implantation. In some of the worst cases, women reportedly needed multiple revision surgeries to repair the damage caused by transvaginal mesh devices.
Other noteworthy points included in the 2011 FDA public warning were that vaginal mesh devices had greater risks of complications than traditional surgery for treating POP and SUI and that vaginal mesh may not even be sufficient at alleviating the symptoms of prolapse.
