Ethicon Gynecare Mesh Injuries

Women who have received an implant of Ethicon Gynecare mesh and transvaginal mesh products manufactured by other makers often sustain similar injuries that are related to defective design. One of the major causes of transvaginal mesh injuries is mesh erosion, which occurs when the mesh implant breaks down inside of the patient’s body. During this erosion process, women often report severe pelvic area pain, bleeding, and vaginal discharge.

First Ethicon MDL Bellwether Case Dismissed

Earlier this year, Carey Danis & Lowe reported that the first bellwether case in the Ethicon MDL was dismissed. The bellwether case concerned the injuries sustained by plaintiff Carolyn Lewis. Judge Joseph R. Goodwin, who is presiding over the Ethicon MDL in addition to the other six transvaginal mesh MDLs consolidated in a West Virginia federal court, dismissed Lewis’s transvaginal mesh lawsuit due to a lack of evidence.
