Litigation Tactics Impact Future of Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits

December 5, 2011

Nearly 3,000 women have been injured as the result of a dangerous medical product known as a transvaginal mesh. Commonly, a transvaginal mesh is surgically inserted in a woman’s pelvis in response to a pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or to treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Unfortunately for a large and growing number of women, this medical device has caused considerably more harm than benefit, including discomfort and pain that ranges from mild to very severe. 

 

Not surprising, American Medical Systems (AMS), a prominent manufacturer of transvaginal mesh, finds itself under legal attack from victims who are demanding their day in court. Although these injured women and their families may have their day in court, lawyers for AMS are doing their best to ensure that the court which hosts them is located in Minnesota and in front of their AMS’s preferred judge, instead of in fora that are convenient for the victims.
