Transvaginal Mesh Case Verdicts Can Be Significant

by Staff Blogger | February 16th, 2016

For years, transvaginal mesh was used in surgeries to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in women. The mesh was surgically implanted to keep internal organs in place so they didn’t sag within the body cavity. Although initial results seemed promising, in the last several years, transvaginal mesh has been linked to serious and painful health conditions that can require additional surgeries to correct.

Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough is actively taking cases of individuals who suffered complications due to transvaginal mesh implants. And now, some of these cases are being settled for millions of dollars. For example, an $11 million verdict was recently returned in New Jersey against Ethicon for injuries caused by its Gynecare Prolift, a transvaginal mesh product. In addition, a $3.27 million verdict was awarded to a woman in West Virginia for a similar product.
