Countless women have undergone Transvaginal Mesh procedures in order to correct complications caused by childbirth. During the procedure flexible surgical mesh is implanted through the vaginal wall in order to strengthen the pelvic muscles. Prolene mesh, a popular brand of surgical mesh, has been linked to a number of dangerous complications. As a result, thousands of women who received Prolene mesh implants have filed lawsuits to recover compensation for their injuries.
Prolene mesh is a polypropylene (plastic) mesh implant used to support and stabilize the vaginal wall and pelvic floor. Ethicon, a division of Johnson & Johnson (J&J), created Prolene mesh primarily to treat two conditions that affect women: pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). POP is a condition in which a woman’s pelvic muscles become weakened, causing pelvic organs to slip out of place. SUI, on the other hand, is uncontrollable urine leakage caused by strenuous activities such as working out, coughing, and laughing. Both POP and SUI are often caused by weakened pelvic muscles due to child birth.
Many Prolene mesh patients have filed lawsuits against J&J to recover compensation for their medical costs, out of pocket expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Mesh injury lawsuits are commonly based on product liability law. Under product liability law, manufacturers and sellers have a duty to ensure that their products are free from any unexpected dangers or defects. Consumers who are injured by a defective product can sue the manufacturer for compensation.
