San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 05, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Peggy Greene. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
According to court documents, on May 14th 2012, a Texarkana woman, Peggy Greene, filed a lawsuit in Texas Eastern District Court (case no. 5:2012cv00045) alleging she suffered several complications from her transvaginal Mesh implantation. Transvaginal surgical mesh is used to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI). Plaintiff is suing Boston Scientific Corporation (d/b/a Mansfield Scientific, Inc. & Microvasive, Inc.), the medical device manufacturer. Greene claims she was surgically implanted the Uphold Vaginal Support System in May 2010 to treat her stress urinary incontinence. After the surgery, she alleges experiencing complications including vaginal pressure and pain, vaginal bleeding and/or dyspareunia caused by the trasvaginal mesh.
On February 7th, 2012 the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict litigation (JPML) issued an order consolidating three transvaginal mesh litigations into a single proceeding to be heard in the Southern District of West Virginia. Boston Scientific Corp. (MDL No. 2326) is among the defendants.

On January 3rd, 2011, the FDA ordered manufacturers of surgical mesh to conduct postmarket surveillance studies of their urogynecologic surgical mesh used for transvaginal repair of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and single-incision mini-slings for stress urinary incontinence (SUI). This order requires manufacturers to submit study plans to the FDA that address specific safety and effectiveness concerns related to surgical mesh. On July 13, 2011 an FDA Safety Communication update was issued to inform the medical community and patients that serious complications associated with surgical mesh for transvaginal repair of POP are not rare.
