J&J's Ethicon faces Sixth Trial for its Mesh Products

  • J&J News

J&J's Ethicon faces another pelvic mesh defective product case for two of its mesh products: TVT-SECUR and TVT (tension-free vaginal tape), at the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas. This is the sixth trial faced by the manufacturer so far. In this latest case, the plaintiff was implanted with a TVT- Secur sling for urinary incontinence in May of 2007, but due to a mid-urethral erosion, she had a corrective surgery done in July 2007, for mid-urethral erosion during which she was implanted with a TVT mesh. However, she underwent three more corrective surgeries following this. The trial is nearing a closure; it's a wait and watch situation; chances loom better for the plaintiff as Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas has passed four earlier pro-plaintiff verdicts and is viewed as favorable to Ethicon transvaginal mesh plaintiffs. Failure to warn about the potential risks and defectively designed are the major allegations faced by Ethicon in this case.
