One of the most controversial medical implants in recent years has been transvaginal mesh implants. Intended to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence, transvaginal mesh has been widely used since it was approved by the FDA in 2002. However, several years after FDA approval, reports of harm caused by the mesh implant began to emerge and transvaginal mesh lawsuits followed. Manufacturers have faced tens of thousands of mesh implant lawsuits with new transvaginal mesh lawsuit claims still being filed today. Transvaginal mesh attorneys can help those who have been harmed by a transvaginal mesh device and litigate a transvaginal mesh claim for financial compensation for any harm that they have suffered.
UPDATE: Johnson & Johnson agreed to pay $117 million to settle allegations over the deceptive marketing of the mesh implant and failure to warn patients and doctors of the harmful risks.
