Johnson & Johnson have agreed to settle over 100 transvaginal mesh tape and sling lawsuits for their Mentor unit. The J&J Mentor unit caused permanent injuries for the women plaintiffs after they had the units surgically implanted. Although there were 100 transvaginal mesh lawsuits there were 111 plaintiffs involved in the settlement. However, the exact financial terms of the transvaginal mesh tape and sling settlement remain unknown.
Mentor ObTape Transobturator Sling
This tension-free surgery has less risk of bladder and bowel injury in comparison with the TVT sling because there is no need to blindly pass a large needle through the retropubic space when inserting the mesh tape. It was invented in France and brought to the United States in 2002.
Despite the settlement and the fact that the sling was discontinued in 2006, J&J maintains that the sling is a safe product. There are still hundreds of other cases pending before Judge Clay Land, with six bellwether cases set for trial in October and November.
