Negligence in Prolift Design Cost J&J and Ethicon Inc. $35 Million

  • Pelvic Mesh Medical Record Review & Outsourcing Services

A nine-person jury panel held J&J and its Ethicon Inc. subsidiary responsible for being negligent in designing and marketing of Prolift, a transvaginal mesh device, which caused chronic pelvic pain since the time the plaintiff underwent a prolapse repair surgery in 2009. The jury pointed that the defendants marketed, sold, and recruited physicians worldwide to implant the mesh implant device for Pelvic Floor Repair in women that suffered from pelvic prolapse. The plaintiff was awarded $10 million as compensatory and $25 million as punitive damages in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Indiana Judiciary, with Honorable Judge Philip P. Simon presiding over the 9-day trial.

Over 55,000 product liability claims involving Prolift and other transvaginal mesh implants are a part of the centralized litigation in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia.
