Recently, CBS News and their long-running news magazine 60 Minutes reported on the tremendous controversy surrounding a common surgical implant that has generated the largest multi-district litigation since asbestos.
Transvaginal or gynecological mesh—a surgical device implanted in over two million American women—currently lies at the center of over 100,000 lawsuits filed by those women on the grounds of severe complications. The full report is available here.
While the manufacturers of this strip of plastic say the implant is safe, over 100,000 women disagree. Together, they are part of the largest multi-district litigation seen in the United States since asbestos—claiming the implant “can inflict life-altering pain and injury.”
A Pattern of Defects
Over five years, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) uncovered nearly 4,000 reports of injury, death, and malfunction against one manufacturer alone—as well as other complications such as pain, infection, urinary problems, bleeding, and organ perforation.
