Plaintiff is Among Hundreds of Women Who Suffered Serious and Life-Altering Injuries, Allegedly Due to Transvaginal Mesh Products Marketed by C.R. Bard and Other Manufacturers.
Wright & Schulte LLC, a nationwide personal injury law firm, has filed a transvaginal mesh lawsuit on behalf of an Iowa woman allegedly injured by Pelvitex Polypropylene Mesh marketed by C.R. Bard, Inc. The lawsuit, which was filed in the C. R. Bard, Inc. Pelvic System Products Liability Litigation (MDL 2187) now underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia, names C. R. Bard and Sofradim Production SAS as Defendants. (Case No. 2:12-cv-06889)
The C.R. Bard transvaginal mesh litigation is one of five pending in the Southern District of West Virginia before Judge Joseph R. Goodwin. Others include In re: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation (MDL No. 2327), In re: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation (MDL No. 2325); In re: Boston Scientific Corp., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation (MDL No. 2326); and In Re Coloplast Corp. Pelvic Support System Products Liability Litigation. According to Court records, the first trial in the C.R. Bard transvaginal mesh litigation will begin in February 2013.
Additional transvaginal mesh lawsuits have also been filed in state courts throughout the U.S. This past July, a California jury awarded $5.5 million to a woman who claimed to have suffered serious injuries from a C.R. Bard transvaginal mesh device.
The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) is currently reviewing the safety of transvaginal mesh products used in the surgical repair of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). In a Public Health Notification issued on July 13, 2011, the FDA concluded that serious injuries associated with surgical mesh for transvaginal repair of POP, including neuromuscular problems, vaginal scarring/shrinkage and emotional problems, were “not rare”. The FDA further concluded that transvaginal POP repair with mesh “does not improve symptomatic results or quality of life over traditional non mesh repair.”
