In the wake of reports of serious injury, and even death, from complications related to the use of Transvaginal Mesh (TVM), Johnson & Johnson has announced they will halt sales of their TVM implant (sold through J&J's Ethicon division.) According to the Wall Street Journal (source specs listed below), the company will stop selling Gynecare TVT Secur, Gynecare Prosima, Gynecare Prolift and Gynecare Prolift+M brands of TVM over the next year. TVM attorney Brad Lakin is a founding partner of SL Chapman LLC, a law firm involved in litigating TVM lawsuits. In response to J&J's decision to stop sales of their mesh, Lakin said, "It is good news for consumers that Johnson & Johnson plans to stop sales of their surgical Transvaginal mesh products. The side effects and symptoms that have been reported by TVM users can be severe and anyone who believes they may have complications from mesh should consult a trusted doctor as soon as possible."

The FDA has issued multiple Public Health Notices regarding symptoms and side effects that can stem from mesh complications. Symptoms can include severe pain sitting or pain while walking, incontinence, and loss of sexual sensation or pain with intercourse. Side effects that can cause these symptoms include infection, shrinkage, inflammation, damage to nerve endings, and mesh erosion. Mesh lawyer Lakin further noted, "the first steps a person who believes they have been affected by Transvaginal Mesh complications should take are, one, consult a physician, and two, determine the maker of your implant; this step is crucial and can be answered by the doctor who performed your TVM surgery. Enlisting an attorney to gather this information can greatly expedite the process. We offer a free, no obligation legal consultation for anyone that feels they might be a victim of TVM complications.” (it can be accessed by clicking here.)

SL Chapman lawyers have obtained over $700 million in verdicts, settlements, and other benefits on behalf of their clients. SL Chapman has offices in St. Louis, Southern Illinois, and Phoenix.
