Transvaginal Mesh

Plaintiff awarded over $11 million in mesh lawsuit against Gynecare

A New Jersey jury awarded $7.76 million in punitive damages and $3.35 million in compensatory damages to a woman who had 18 surgeries in an attempt to correct a transvaginal mesh implant manufactured by Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Ethicon.  The company was accused of failure to warn, defective design, deceit and negligence.


As with most transvaginal mesh implants, they were cleared through the FDA’s 510(k) application process, which means that Johnson & Johnson did no independent clinical testing to learn and test the risks of mesh.
