BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Plaintiff Colleen Perry was implanted with Ethicon’s Gynecare TVT Abbrevo Sling System in March 2011 to treat her stress urinary incontinence. Her Transvaginal mesh lawsuit accuses Johnson & Johnson and Ethicon Inc. of hiding the risks associated with their Gynecare TVT Abbrevo Sling System.
According to court documents, Perry and her husband sued Ethicon in April 2013, alleging that contrary to JNJ and Ethicon’s representations and marketing, the Sling System “has high failure, injury and complication rates, fails to perform as intended, requires frequent and often debilitating revision surgeries, and has caused severe and irreversible injuries, conditions, and damage to a significant number of women.”
According to the complaint, “the Sling System is represented by JNJ and Ethicon to correct and restore normal vaginal structure by implantation of polypropylene mesh in the vaginal region.” “The Sling System is specifically promoted to physicians and patients as part of an innovative, minimally invasive procedure with minimal local tissue reactions, minimal tissue trauma, and minimal pain while correcting stress urinary incontinence.”
