Gilman Law LLP Announces Continued Prosecution of Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits and Verdict of $100 Million

Gilman Law LLP Announces Continued Prosecution of Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits and Verdict of $100 Million

Gilman law is continuing to prosecute transvaginal mesh cases for women who have suffered debilitating transvaginal mesh complications following surgery to repair pelvic organ prolapse or stress

urinary incontinence.

A state court jury found yesterday that Boston Scientific’s Pinnacle and Advantage Fit inserts, built to

buttress sagging organs and treat incontinence in women, were defectively designed and that Boston

Scientific engaged in fraudulent concealment by failing to alert doctors and patients to the devices’ faulty design. The

jury awarded $100 million to a 51-year-old woman whose mesh eroded after it was implanted leaving

her with a scarred vagina and additional medical problems.

Boston Scientific, a Marlborough, Massachusetts-based company, agreed last month to settle a small amount of claims for

$119 million, based upon systemic damages for claims where inserts damaged women’s organs and

made sexual intercourse painful.

According to Gilman Law LLP, a leading pharmaceutical law and defective medical device plaintiffs’ law firm

that is currently representing women in transvaginal mesh lawsuits, serious settlement talks reportedly are now

underway to resolve this massive litigation.

On June 2, 2015, the Court will convene a joint status conference, as well as individual meetings with six

of the seven defendants – American Medical Systems, Boston Scientific, C.R. Bard, Coloplast, Cook

Medical and Ethicon – with the goal of moving closer to resolution.

Women who have received these devices may be at risk for a number of very serious and painful

complications, including:

  • Mesh erosion through the vaginal tissue, possibly causing the skin to split
  • Mesh extrusion and exposure.
  • Perforation or puncture of bladder, intestines, bowels, and/or vaginal wall
  • Protrusion or lump in the vaginal opening
  • Recurrence of pelvic organ prolapse
  • Recurrence of stress urinary incontinence
  • Urinary problems
  • Vaginal bleeding, pain and discomfort, chronic drainage, discharge, infections, scarring and/or shrinkage
  • Painful sexual intercourse

Gilman Law LLP is providing complimentary lawsuit consultations to women who suffered severe

complications, including tremendous pain and suffering, following implantation of transvaginal mesh.
