Transvaginal mesh is a medical device used to treat pelvic organ prolapse in women and also some cases of stress urinary incontinence. There have recently been many cases of injury popping up as a result of these implants. Some of the symptoms are bleeding and infections along with increased pain. This is because after the mesh was installed, it moved out of place which required additional surgery to either remove or replace the device. Back in 2008 the FDA issued a warning about the possible dangers of transvaginal mesh. Just last week, three similar litigations are being combined into a single proceeding to take place in West Virginia. The accused are Boston Scientific Corp., American Medical Systems and Johnson & Johnson's Ethicon.
Multidistrict litigation seems to be a growing trend for transvaginal mesh cases, since so many women have been affected in the same ways even in the case of different manufacturers. Judge Joseph Goodwin will be presiding over this new case. He presided over a very similar case back in 2010.
