A Texas woman has filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia where it joins many consolidated in multidistrict litigation against American Medical Systems and Boston Scientific alleging that their transvaginal mesh products are defective and caused her to suffer painful injuries.

The lawsuit says the plaintiff was implanted in 2009 with three transvaginal mesh products: the Lynx Suprapubic Med-Urethral Sling System the Elevate Prolapse Repair System, and the Perigee Prolapse Repair System. Though the mesh system were implanted to repair the plaintiff’s pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI), the mesh products instead caused the plaintiff to suffer severe physical and mental pain and suffering, permanent injury, loss of bodily organ system, and permanent and substantial physical deformity.

Though manufactured by different companies, the transvaginal mesh products all have the same defect in which the mesh reacts within the tissue of the body, creating the unreasonable risk of vaginal infection, erosion, extrusion, perforation, and chronic pain and abscess. After thousands of reports of complications regarding the mesh systems, the FDA issued a warning that the products more effective than other SUI and POP treatments. The FDA has requested the manufacturers of these products to conduct thorough post-marketing investigations into organ damage and other serious health issues.

In one of the first lawsuits to go to trial, a California jury awarded $5.5 million to a couple who charged that the C.R. Bard Avaulta Plus transvaginal mesh system caused her serious injury.
