Each of these Plaintiffs received the Pelvic Mesh Product to treat the Plaintiff for stress urinary incontinence and/or pelvic organ prolapse. According to court documents, as a result of the implantation of this Pelvic Mesh Product the Plaintiffs suffered serious injuries including but not limited to; extreme pain, vaginal erosion, dyspareunia, abdominal and pelvic pain, recurrence of incontinence, additional surgery and/or other surgeries. It´s suspected that if not for the implantation of these Pelvic Mesh Products, manufactured by the Defendants, the Plaintiffs would not have suffered from the metal and physical anguish and permanent injuries that they did.

The Defendants, listed above, were engaged in the business of placing of designing, manufacturing, marketing, packaging, labeling and selling such devices as those listed in the lawsuits above. These products are implanted in women who suffer from pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence. The vaginal mesh product is inserted to support the structure of the vagina wall and hold the woman´s organs in place.

According to the Food and Drug Administration, “The most frequent complications included erosion through vaginal epithelium, infection, pain, urinary problems, and recurrence of prolapse and/or incontinence. There were also reports of bowel, bladder, and blood vessel perforation during insertion. In some cases, vaginal scarring and mesh erosion led to a significant decrease in patient quality of life due to discomfort and pain.”
