Transvaginal Mesh & Bladder Sling Settlement Information
TV Mesh cases have been filed against several different manufacturers, in both Federal and State courts. More than 21,000 cases have been consolidated and filed in a Federal MDL in the US District Court, Southern District of West Virginia. While very few of these cases have gone to trial, the few that have been tried have resulted in significant awards for the plaintiffs. In the first Federal bellwether case to go to trial, in August, 2013, a jury awarded plaintiff $250,000 in compensatory damages. In June 2013, one manufacturer, Endo Health Solutions, settled out of court with a group of plaintiffs for $54.5 million.
AMS Transvaginal Mesh Settlement Information
Some 20,000 AMS pelvic mesh plaintiffs have been offered a settlement of $830 million by Endo Health Systems, which purchased American Medical Systems (AMS) in 2011. Endo/AMS makes the Apogee, Perigee, Monarc and Elevate among other mesh slings and pelvic organ repair mesh devices. If this settlement offer is accepted by a majority of plaintiffs in the MDL lawsuit, the process will begin for payment to the clients of the 4 major law firms which negotiated this settlement. Endo/ AMS also agreed last year to pay $54.5 million to resolve an unnamed number of other pending transvaginal mesh injury cases. Litigation continues against other pelvic mesh makers, including Boston Scientific, C.R. Bard, and Ethicon.
Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit History
Transvaginal mesh implants and bladder slings have been popular treatments for women with pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence, with more than 300,000 women receiving implants in 2010 alone. Studies by the FDA have shown that 10 percent of women who undergo this surgery experience severe complications within the first year after surgery. These complications include mesh erosion and extrusion through the vaginal wall, damage to the urethra, perforation of the uterus, bladder or bowel, nerve damage, infection and painful sexual intercourse. Many women with these symptoms must undergo complex revision surgery to remove the defective product and correct the problems it caused
