The national law firm of Parker Waichman LLP has filed three separate lawsuits on behalf of women allegedly injured by transvaginal mesh medical products. One lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Tennessee against American Medical Systems and includes the Perigee System with IntePro Lite, the Apogee System with IntePro Lite, and MiniArc Sling.

A second lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Georgia, Gainesville Division against Boston Scientific Corp’s Obtryx Transobturator Mid-Uretheral Sling System on behalf of a Georgia woman.

The third lawsuit was filed on behalf of an Arizona woman in U.S. District Court, District of Arizona against Ethcion, Inc., for the Gynecare Prolife device.

All three lawsuits claim the women received the transvaginal mesh products to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI), and that the products caused significant physical and mental pain and suffering, permanent injury, permanent and substantial physical deformity, and loss of bodily organ system. The suits also say the plaintiffs have undergone and will have to undergo corrective surgeries.

Gary P. Falkowitz, a lawyer with Parker Waichman LLP said, “The injuries suffered by these three plaintiffs are typical of the kinds of complaints we’re hearing every day from women who have received transvaginal mesh implants during surgeries to repair POP and SUI. These complications are life-changing, and in many instances, the victims of transvaginal mesh injuries will never be able to recover their previous quality of life.” disclaimer: This article: Parker Waichman LLP Files Three Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits was posted on Friday, March 9th, 2012 at 8:49 pm at and is filed under Medical Device Lawsuits.
