December 13, 2011 – According to a report from the Injury Board Blog Network, the first transvaginal or bladder sling lawsuits are scheduled to begin in November 2012. 

These cases will appear before a New Jersey state court. More than 350 lawsuits have been filed due to serious complications developed after prolapse surgery. 

The products include: 
  • Gynecare Prolift mesh;
  • Gynecare TVT sling;
  • Gynecare Gynemesh;
  • Gynecare Prolene Mesh; and
  • other mesh-related products from Ethicon. 
Claims concerning the manufacturer being aware of the dangerous risks, yet continuing to manufacture and sell them, are being made. In addition, the manufacturer is accused of manufacturing a defective medical product and not warning consumers of the potential risks.

Some of the complications that patients have encountered include mesh erosion, pain, inflammation, perforated organs, infection, bleeding, painful sexual intercourse and the need for additional surgeries.

You may be entitled to file a lawsuit stemming from a transvaginal mesh procedure for a bladder repair or any other type of prolapse surgery. Contact a law firm in Louisville that handles medical malpractice and defective product cases as soon as possible.
