CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A Charleston, W. Va. jury found Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon Inc. division liable to a woman who suffered serious injuries after being implanted in 2011 with the manufacturer’s TVT-O sling. Huskey’s TVT-O sling, or transvaginal tape obturator, is a polypropylene mesh sling that was used to correct stress urinary inconsistence. The plaintiff experienced mesh erosion and chronic pelvic pain.
This was the first federal bellwether trial against Johnson & Johnson alleging that Ethicon’s TVT-O pelvic mesh sling is defective and has caused numerous complications in women implanted with the device. The medical device maker’s Ethicon Inc. division faces more than 20,000 lawsuits regarding pelvic mesh devices, all of which are consolidated in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia and will be overseen by Chief Judge Goodwin. This verdict sends a strong message to the mesh maker about future awards in these cases.
