Over 100 Obtape vaginal mesh lawsuits have been settled in the Obtape multidistrict litigation (MDL) in Georgia. The mesh lawsuit settlement covers 111 cases involving the Mentor Obtape Transobturator Sling.
Women who filed Obtape lawsuits targeted at Mentor, a unit of Johnson & Johnson, claimed to have suffered tremendous, life-changing injuries. These women received an Obtape implant to treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI). As the Obtape is made from a defective sling material, one that has been described as too dense to be effective, the women in these cases often report that their health was better before receiving the Obtape implant.
As a result of the Obtape’s defective nature, these women experienced chronic pain, excessive discharge, and organ and tissue damage. Most, if not all, of these women had to undergo surgery to remove the Obtape implant.
