San Diego, CA (PRWEB) March 06, 2013
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, updated the website recently and they are now actively providing expert opinion in view of the recent news on Transvaginal Mesh cases.
As Reuters reported on February 25th, 2013, Johnson & Johnson must pay a South Dakota woman $3.35 million in transvaginal mesh lawsuit compensatory damages (case no. Atl-L-6966-10, Superior Court of Atlantic County, New Jersey). Transvaginal surgical mesh is used to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI). In the lawsuit plaintiff claimed she was implanted with the Gynecare Prolift in 2006 and surgery led to serious complications including mesh erosion, inflammation and scar tissue, among others. She had 18 operations to correct the damage from the transvaginal mesh.
The US FDA safety communication, issued on July 13th 2011 and last updated on November 20th, 2012, informed that “serious complications associated with surgical mesh for transvaginal repair of POP are not rare. Furthermore, it is not clear that transvaginal POP repair with mesh is more effective than traditional non-mesh repair in all patients with POP and it may expose patients to greater risk”.
