TVM’s Troubling Five-Fold Increase

The makers of transvaginal mesh (TVM) implants such as Johnson & Johnson have been the defendants in several recent lawsuits related to the safety of their surgical mesh products. In a few cases, the fallout from a faulty mesh has caused debilitating pain and discomfort, including an inability to sit for longer than 20 minutes or to have sex.


While such extreme suffering is not common, medical observers and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) were concerned to learn that between 2008 and 2010 more than 1,500 patients experience some kind of pain, suffering, malfunction, or death as a result of TVMs. The number of patients who suffered from some kind of adverse TVM event during this period represent a remarkably high five-fold increase from previous periods.
