Gynecare Prolift & TVT Lawyers
Gynecare (Ethicon), a wholly owned subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, manufactures numerous mesh products, known as pelvic mesh, vaginal mesh, and bladder slings, designed to treat pelvic organ prolapse and/or stress urinary incontinence. These products include Prolift, TVT, Gynemesh, and Prolene.
Our investigation indicates that these medical devices can cause mesh erosion into the vagina, bladder, intestines and uterus, mesh shrinkage or contraction, mesh migration, mesh exposure, scar tissue formation, granuloma formation, infections, pelvic pain, urinary incontinence and development of urinary retention, dysuria (painful urination), dyspareunia (painful sexual relations), neuropathic pain, fistulas and recurrence of prolapsed organs, often leaving women with worse symptoms and complications than the conditions they were used to treat. These complications have significantly decreased the quality of life many patients once enjoyed.
Our Gynecare Prolift & TVT Lawyers have been actively pursuing and litigating complications related to Gynecare (Ethicon) products and have already reviewed thousands of internal documents. In addition to being appointed the Co-Liaison Counsel in the consolidated cases proceeding in New Jersey State Court against Gynecare, Ethicon, and Johnson & Johnson, we are the only attorneys to have multiple pelvic mesh bladder sling cases that have advanced to depositions.
Contact our Gynecare Prolift & TVT Bladder Sling Attorneys immediately if you or someone you know has had one of these mesh products implanted and experienced similar complications or symptoms.
