A recent court victory back in September for Jo Huskey in West Virginia who had terrible side effects and suffered excruciating pain from a Johnson & Johnson Ethicon transvaginal mesh.
In a two week trial, the jurors found Ethicon liable for selling faulty devices and failing to warn patients of possible pain, bleeding and infection.
52 year old Jo Huskey had a Gynecare TVT Obturator, or TVT-O, transvaginal mesh device in 2011 to treat stress urinary incontinence, a common problem for many women.
This case is important for all women who have had vaginal mesh implants, as many of these devices seem to have been rushed to market, or made with inferior materials that can break down and cause numerous health problems.
We hope that all makers of these transvaginal mesh products do more testing before being allowed to sell them. Even the FDA has issued a statement saying that they are considering proposals to strengthen the standards for transvaginal mesh devices used to treat pelvic organ prolapse.
If you or someone you know has had any type of transvaginal mesh device and suffered from the surgery or even the removal you may take part in a class action lawsuit with LARGE CASH AWARDS that are forming NOW.
