Shannon and Daniel Farr have filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Alabama against American Medical Systems and Boston Scientific, alleging defective vaginal mesh products have caused her to suffer severe and permanent injury.

According to the lawsuit, Farr was implanted with a Solyx SIS System, a Boston Scientific Pinnacle Posterior Pelvic Floor Repair Kit, and an AMS Elevate Anterior and Apical mesh system. The complaint says that the products adversely react to human tissue, harbor infection, abrade tissue, and migrate from surgical locations.

The FDA has issued a warning about transvaginal mesh products, saying there is no significant benefit of the mesh over alternate treatments of pelvic organ prolapse. An increasing number of lawsuits are being filed against transvaginal mesh manufacturers alleging the products erode and cause infection, as well as other serious issues. Because cells in the body grow in and around the mesh after implantation, it is nearly impossible to remove, leaving some women in worse health than before the surgery was performed.

The lawsuit claims product liability and is seeking an unknown amount. disclaimer: This article: Alabama Lawsuit Filed Against Vaginal Mesh Manufacturers was posted on Monday, August 15th, 2011 at 7:42 pm at and is filed under Medical Device Lawsuits.
