Since 2008, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has been reviewing the safety of transvaginal mesh products used in the surgical repair of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). On October 20, 2008, the agency issued a Public Heath Notification advising it had received more than 1,000 complaints over a three year period relating to transvaginal mesh products. In a second Public Health Notification issued on July 13, 2011, the FDA noted that it had received a total of 2,864 reports of complications between 2008 and 2010. The agency concluded that serious injuries associated with surgical mesh for transvaginal repair of POP, were “not rare,” and further advised that transvaginal POP repair with mesh “does not improve symptomatic results or quality of life over traditional non mesh repair.”
In addition to the American Medical Systems litigation, additional consolidated proceedings involving other transvaginal mesh manufacturers have been established in the Southern District of West Virginia, including In re: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation- MDL No. 2327; In re: Boston Scientific Corp., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation – MDL No. 2326; and In Re Coloplast Corp. Pelvic Support Systems Products Liability Litigation. Court records indicate that a case involving a C.R. Bard transvaginal mesh device will be the first to go to trial in February 2013. The first trial involving an American Medical Systems’ device will begin in December 2013, followed by trials for Ethicon and Boston Scientific products.
