Even then, medical professionals make no guarantee. Recent jury verdicts and settlements against the device makers have sought to assist women in dealing with the high costs of a mesh injury.

In some cases, juries have awarded millions of dollars to women injured by Johnson and Johnson’s Ethicon mesh devices. But the company has been the the slowest transvaginal mesh device manufacturer to offer settlements. Perhaps one reason for the slow response from this manufacturer deals with the fact that they face the highest number of federal lawsuits. The company likely wants to dispose of unworthy claims before offering a settlement. Despite this, the company in 2015 settled 4 lawsuits for an undisclosed amount.

Jury awards range in size. For example, in September 2014, a jury decided against the company and awarded Jo Husky $3.2 million. The jury found that Ethicon’s Gynecare TVT mesh caused Husky permanent injuries and the company failed to warn her of the possible risks.

Side effects from transvaginal mesh have triggered lawsuits across the United States.

Transvaginal Mesh LawsuitsWomen in these lawsuits have claimed that after receiving the mesh implant, they have suffered injuries that include bleeding, infection, organ perforation, inability to engage in sexual intercourse, pelvic pain or severe vaginal pain, vaginal scarring, fistulas, erosion of mesh through the vagina, recurrent incontinence or prolapse, need for correctional surgery, urinary tract infections and neuromuscular problems. Spouses of some of the plaintiff have even included loss of consortium in their claims.

The mesh is usually made of synthetic polyproplyne and is used to support the urethra in cases of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and to support bulging organs in cases of pelvic organ prolapse (POP). Transvaginal mesh was approved by the FDA in 1996 for stress urinary incontinence procedures and in 2002 for pelvic organ prolapse.

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the popular plastic transvaginal mesh device that has been used to repair pelvic organ prolapse (POP) transvaginally, or through the vagina, will have to undergo rigorous safety studies before being available to be used in patients.

The FDA issued two final orders to vaginal mesh manufacturers and notified the public that the agency is strengthening the medical data requirements for surgical mesh.
