Problems with Ethicon Vaginal Mesh

In August 2010, experts published a study in the Journal of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, stating that the rate of Gynecare Prolift pelvic mesh erosion is as high as 15.6%.  Erosion is just one of the many problems associated with Ethicon vaginal mesh.  Women implanted with this mesh have also been known to experience:\

  • Pain
  • Infection
  • Pain during sex
  • Pain during urination
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Pelvic organ prolapse relapse
  • Perforation of surrounding organs
  • Fistulas
  • Scarification
  • Granulomas
  • Vaginal mesh migration
  • Mesh contraction or shrinkage

Experts at the World Health Organization 3rd International Consultation on Incontinence brought attention to the very high rate of complication associated with all vaginal mesh products, including Ethicon mesh.  After thorough research, these scientists and doctors concluded that vaginal mesh holds no benefit over other methods of surgical pelvic organ prolapse repair.

Ethicon Vaginal Mesh Products

A subsidiary of one of the largest maker of medical devices in the world, Ethicon has produced a great number of vaginal mesh or bladder sling products, all of which have been linked to severe injury.  Included in the list of Ethicon mesh products are:

  • Ethicon Gynecare Gynemesh
  • Ethicon Gynecare Prolene Mesh
  • Ethicon Gynecare Prolift Pelvic Mesh
  • Ethicon Gynecare Prosima Pelvic Mesh
  • Ethicon Gynecare TVT Sling
  • Ethicon Gynecare TVT Obturator System
  • Ethicon Gynecare TVT Secure System
  • Ethicon Gynecare TVT Retropublic System
  • Ethicon Gynecare TVT Exact
  • Ethicon Gynecare TVT Abbrevo

Ethicon Gynecare TVT pelvic mesh/bladder slings have been in the market for more than 11 years, and have been used in more than 1.5 million pelvic repair surgeries worldwide.

Ethicon Gynemesh, a prominent pelvic organ prolapse repair product, is porous.  This means that nearby tissues can grow into this material, making it part of the body.  This can make vaginal mesh removal even more difficult should a woman experience problems with this device.

Ethicon Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits

Ethicon is a division of Johnson & Johnson, one of the largest makers of medical devices in the world.  While some women may hesitate to bring suit against such a giant and influential corporation, our clients can stand confident that the lawyers at Bernheim Dolinsky Kelley, LLC. will be able to level the playing field against Johnson & Johnson or any other manufacturer of bladder slings or pelvic mesh.  In Ethicon vaginal mesh lawsuits, our lawyers can prove that Ethicon was negligent in failing to provide a safe product and in posting inadequate warnings as to the safety of their vaginal mesh and bladder sling products.

Plaintiffs in vaginal mesh lawsuits are entitled to substantial compensation for their damages, which may include pain and suffering, pharmacy costs, medical bills, loss of consortium, and more.  In making and marketing their defective medical devices, Ethicon made the decision to prioritize their own profit over the safety of women across the world.  Our personal injury lawyers are dedicated to holding this company fully accountable for the damage their greed has caused.
