The appointments to the PSC and other leadership roles in the ongoing vaginal mesh MDLs were announced on April 13 after Judge Goodwin approved a proposed counsel structure for the plaintiffs attorneys. By doing so, Judge Goodwin allowed for a coordinated and unified leadership spanning the four MDL actions comprised of the following: In re C.R. Bard, Inc. Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation (MDL No. 2187);In re American Medical Systems, Inc. Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation (MDL No. 2325); In re Boston Scientific Corp. Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation(MDL No. 2326); and In re Ethicon, Inc. Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation (MDL No. 2327). The plaintiffs in the lawsuits are women who were implanted with one or more of the manufacturers vaginal mesh products in the treatment of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) or pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and claim to have suffered serious physical and mental injuries as a result.
The FDA first brought to light reports of vaginal mesh complications in 2008 when it issued a public health notification on serious complications associated with transvaginal mesh placement. After issuing this statement, the agency reported that it saw the number of adverse events associated with vaginal mesh products continue to climb and issued an update in July 2011 informing the public that transvaginal mesh complications in the repair of POP are not rare. Surgical placement of the mesh through the vagina in the treatment of POP may expose patients to a greater risk than other surgical options without evidence of any greater clinical benefit, according to the FDA. Mesh erosion, severe pain, infection, urinary problems and recurrence of prolapse are among the side effects reportedly linked to the mesh products.
