The report provides a brief overview of transvaginal mesh side effects, including erosion, infection, pain, urinary tract complications, and the return of symptoms of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) or pelvic organ prolapse (POP), symptoms the transvaginal mesh implant was intended to eliminate.

The report also reveals that Johnson & Johnson, the parent company of mesh manufacturer Ethicon, was aware of the defective nature of their transvaginal mesh products, but neglected to warn patients and health care providers about known health risks.

One of the risks that the mesh manufacturer was aware of is nerve injury.

One woman quoted in the report, Terri White of Georgia, claims to have suffered from transvaginal mesh side effects for nine years now. In the report, she states that her life has been changed forever by urinary tract infections, pain, and emotional suffering.

Another woman quoted in the Corporate Action Network report, Kristine Monje of California, states that mesh has taken her life away.

From these two accounts, and the thousands of transvaginal mesh lawsuits pending in courts across the U.S., it is clear that transvaginal mesh has had a negative impact in the lives of so many women.

J&J Document Destruction Investigation Continues

As these documents could prove invaluable to those building a case against J&J and their subsidiary, Ethicon, over injuries allegedly caused by the pharmaceutical giant’s transvaginal mesh, an advocacy organization has stepped in to bring the matter before the U.S. Justice Department.

According to an article written by The Boston Globe in late March 2014, the Corporate Action Network contacted Attorney General Eric Holder with a request to more closely review J&J’s handling of these important documents.

A Corporate Action Network representative was quoted in the article as saying that the transvaginal mesh manufactured by J&J and Ethicon has caused serious injuries in women. The representative also claimed that J&J and Ethicon did not provide health care providers and patients adequate warning about the risks associated with use of their transvaginal mesh products. As such, they must face the consequences of knowingly withholding important health and safety information.

Transvaginal mesh lawsuits from across the country have been consolidated into a multidistrict litigation (MDL) in West Virginia. The court resolved in February that J&J had mishandled documents, but for lack of evidence, could not make a determination as to whether the company’s actions were calculated.

It is important to find out the reasons behind J&J’s document destruction.
