Federal Coloplast Lawsuits Consolidated – MDL Established

Ennis & Ennis, P.A. Provides a Transvaginal Mesh Litigation Update

 
PRLog - Aug. 22, 2012 - FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- On August 6, 2012 the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPMDL) consolidated all Coloplast federal transvaginal mesh cases into one court in the Southern District of West Virginia before the Honorable Joseph R. Goodwin.  [1] Judge Goodwin is already the presiding judge to four other pelvic repair product MDLs – C.R. Bard, Inc., American Medical Systems, Inc., Boston Scientific Corp., and Ethicon, Inc.  According to the Order, the panel of judges found that the cases involved common questions of fact, so the centralization of the cases would “serve the convenience of the parties and witnesses and promote the just and efficient conduct of the litigation”.  

The vaginal mesh products at issue are used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence.  Plaintiffs is these lawsuits allege similar injuries including pelvic pain, erosion, infection, painful intercourse, perforation of the bowel or bladder and the need for corrective surgery.  
In July of 2011, after receiving a large volume of adverse event reports relating to transvaginal mesh, the FDA issued a Safety Alert stating that it was unclear if the "mesh is more effective than traditional non-mesh repair and it may expose patients to greater risk." [2]
