Vaginal Mesh Background

Vaginal mesh is also commonly referred to as “Bladder Mesh,” “Transvaginal Mesh,” “Pelvic Mesh,” “Gynecological Mesh,” and several other variations. This common implant is used to treat stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse (POP). Unfortunately, many of these implants are defective and cause complications in patients. In fact, the FDA has issued warnings related to the safety of Transvaginal Mesh. To put this issue in perspective, one company called Boston Scientific, currently faces 48,000 lawsuits involving over 100,000 women.

Largest Litigation Since Asbestos

A recent news story by 60 Minutes highlights the magnitude of vaginal mesh failure and potential impact on patients. For example, 60 Minutes describes these events as “the largest litigation since asbestos.” (Fager, 2018)

Furthermore, according to 60 minutes, “A common surgical implant has generated the largest multi-district litigation since asbestos. 60 Minutes reports on one of the device’s manufacturers, Boston Scientific, now facing 48,000 lawsuits.” (Fager, 2018)
