A 47-year-old former nurse, Gross testified that Ethicon’s Prolift vaginal mesh implant has rendered her unable to work, have sex with her husband, or sit comfortably for more than 20 minutes. (Gross v. Gynecare Inc., Atl-L-6966-10, Superior Court of Atlantic County, New Jersey.) Gross also said that, as a result of the Prolift mesh, she takes up to 20 medications a day and has undergone more than 400 medical encounters, including physical therapy sessions, doctor visits, and many surgeries.
The Charleston woman claims that she suffered serious complications after AMS surgery, when she was implanted with the Elevate transvaginal mesh back in January 2011. The lawsuit alleges that she suffered substantial physical pain and suffering, emotional distress, and economic loss due to medical expenses. These damages, according to the suit, were the direct result of the AMS transvaginal mesh manufacturer’s negligent and wrongful actions. Further, the defendants, AMS, allegedly knew about the risks involved with its transvaginal mesh product but failed to warn the plaintiff.
A Georgia women’s doctor suggested the mesh when she mentioned that she had bladder leakage when she laughed or coughed. Shortly after the surgery, it felt like razors were slicing her organs and a sharp edge of the mesh cut her boyfriend during sex, she said. Even though she eventually had it removed, the 55-year-old west Georgia woman still has pain she believes is caused by the mesh.
According to court documents, on January 7th, 2013 a Minnesota woman filed a lawsuit in Minnesota District Court (case no. 0:2013cv00060) alleging she suffered serious complications from her Transvaginal Mesh. Transvaginal surgical mesh is used to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI). Defendant is Boston Scientific and in the lawsuit, plaintiff claims that after surgical implantation with defendant’s Lynx sling she suffered complications.
