Vaginal Mesh Devices and The FDA
Vaginal mesh devices are used in the surgical repair of pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. Most of the devices currently on the market were approved via the U.S. Food & Drug Administration’s (FDA) 510(K) approval process, which does not require human testing. In September 2011, an FDA advisory panel recommended that vaginal mesh used in pelvic organ prolapse repair be reclassified as a high-risk medical device, which would make them ineligible for 510(k) approvals. In January 2012, the FDA ordered the manufacturers of vaginal mesh products to conduct post-market safety studies of the devices to help the agency better understand their safety profile. This followed the issuance of a Safety Communication in July 2011 in which the FDA warned of the risk for vaginal mesh complications. At the time, the agency concluded that serious injuries associated with surgical mesh for transvaginal repair of pelvic organ prolapse, were “not rare,” and further advised that transvaginal prolapse repair with mesh “does not improve symptomatic results or quality of life over traditional non mesh repair.”
Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits Pending In Federal MDL's and State Courts
Thousands of women have since filed vaginal mesh lawsuits against American Medical Systems and other manufacturers. In addition to the American Medical Systems litigation, four other pelvic mesh litigations are underway in the Southern District of West Virginia, including:
In re: Boston Scientific Corp., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation (MDL No. 2326);
In re: C. R. Bard, Inc. Pelvic System Products Liability Litigation (MDL 2187);
In re: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation (MDL No. 2327); and
In Re: Coloplast Corp. Pelvic Support System Products Liability Litigation (MDL No. 2387).
According to court documents, the first of those trials will start next month, involving a C.R. Bard vaginal mesh device. Additional bellwether trials will begin in June.
Two additional consolidated transvaginal mesh litigations have also been established in New Jersey Superior Court, Bergen County, involving vaginal mesh devices manufactured by C.R. Bard and Ethicon Inc. The first trial in the New Jersey Ethicon litigation got underway this month, and is expected to conclude within a few weeks. (In re: Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard, No. L-6339-10 and In re Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10)
