Coloplast Transvaginal Mesh

 

Coloplast Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits. Transvaginal mesh lawsuits continue to pile up, resulting in yet another multidistrict litigation (MDL) being established in West Virginia federal court. Lawsuits alleging injuries from Coloplast transvaginal mesh and pelvic sling products have been transferred to U.S. Judge Joseph Goodwin in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia.

Judge Goodwin is already overseeing four other transvaginal mesh litigations, involving products made by C.R. Bard, Johnson & Johnson/Ethicon, Inc., American Medical Systems, Inc., and Boston Scientific Corp.

So far, 24 lawsuits are pending in the new Coloplast transvaginal mesh MDL. MDLs are established when a large number of lawsuits associated with a particular product have been filed. The complaints are coordinated under one judge for pretrial litigation to avoid duplicative discovery, inconsistent rulings and to conserve the resources of the parties, witnesses and the court.

When lawsuits are consolidated as a multidistrict litigation, each retains its own identity. If the multidistrict litigation process does not resolve the cases, they are transferred back to the court where they originated for trial.

Transvaginal mesh products made by Coloplast are used to treat pelvic organ prolapse

Like similar devices, transvaginal mesh products made by Coloplast are used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. The safety of transvaginal mesh devices is under scrutiny, as the have been the subject of thousands of reports of serious injuries, including:

•    Inflammation and infection
•    Pain from mesh shrinkage
•    Extrusion of mesh through the vaginal wall
•    Pain during intercourse and urination

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), which has been studying the safety of transvaginal mesh since 2008, recently asked transvaginal mesh manufacturers to conduct post-market safety studies of their products. The agency is considering moving transvaginal mesh for pelvic organ prolapse repair to a higher risk medical device category.

Mom died as a result of nursing home negligence.The general consensus was that she was old and near death anyway...so,not worth much monetarily!!!The people at Parker Waichman felt otherwise.They handled the case and treated my sister and myself as though we were their ONLY clients.We were most fortunate to meet the AMAZING Cybele Louis and her team....Stephanie San Filippo and Cindy Custodio.They were sensitive to the needs of our family but also tough with our awful opponents!!!! They accomplished more in a few short months than had been done in six years!!!! I also thank the reception crew who took my endless calls!!!!(Special thanks to Stephanie for putting up with my rants!!!!)
