AddThis Social Bookmark Button

A class action against Johnson & Johnson Inc. and related entities has been launched in Canada over transvaginal mesh products used to treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and pelvic organ prolapse (POP) in women.

The Statement of Claim accuses J&J of failing to adequately warn physicians and patients of the risk of serious side effects of the transvaginal mesh including the erosion of the mesh through the vaginal wall, pain, infection, perforation of the bladder, vaginal scarring, and pain during sexual intercourse, as well as other problems that can “lead to a significant decrease in quality of life due to discomfort and pain.

An attorney for the plaintiffs said “We believe that through this lawsuit Johnson & Johnson will be required to explain to Canadians what it knew about the risks associated with using their transvaginal mesh products and when they first became aware of those risks. In this case, as with all of these types of cases, we are concerned about whether Canadians were adequately warned of the risks associated with using the products in question.”
