Johnson & Johnson has agreed to a $117 million multistate settlement over allegations it deceptively marketed its pelvic mesh products, which support women's sagging pelvic organs.

J&J agrees to $117M settlement over pelvic mesh devices

Ohio's attorney general said Thursday an investigation found that J&J, the world's biggest health products maker, violated state consumer protection laws by not fully disclosing the devices' risks. Numerous women who had the once-popular, hammock-like devices implanted claim they caused severe pain, bleeding, infections and other complications. Johnson & Johnson and its Ethicon surgical products unit reached the settlement with 41 states and the District of Columbia. "These companies didn't paint a clear picture of the device's medical risks, preventing patients from making well-informed decisions," Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost said in a statement. Some of the products are still on the U.S. market, and hundreds of thousands of women have had the devices surgically implanted, according to Yost's office.

Morrisey sues Johnson & Johnson over marketing of surgical mesh

“Misrepresenting any product’s safety is unlawful and can have dire effects on consumers,” Morrisey said in a Sept. 18 press conference at the state Capitol. “When medical products are marketed in an improper manner, it can put consumers’ health at risk.” The lawsuit, filed Sept. 18 in Monongalia Circuit Court, claims Johnson & Johnson and Ethicon misrepresented the effectiveness, properties, risks and safety history of the surgical mesh products in marketing and educational materials provided to patients and doctors, in personal meetings and in published medical articles.

Jinsook Ohta, the attorney with the state's attorney general's office, asked if the words “life-long erosion” and possible “re-occurrence” were cited in the warnings of potential risk. “Re-occurrence and life-long (complications) are not cited,” said Dr. Ethicon complaint reviewer says in J&J trial that patients felt vaginal mesh instructions fell short of explaining risks.

Patients with faulty Johnson & Johnson hip implants to be compensated up to Rs 1.23 crore. NEW DELHI: The health ministry on Thursday approved an expert committee's proposed formula to compensate patients who had received faulty hip implants made by a subsidiary of US medical device giant Johnson & Johnson.

Patients with faulty Johnson & Johnson hip implants to be compensated up to Rs 1.23 crore

The approved formula would see patients being compensated anywhere between Rs30 lakh and Rs1.23 crore, depending on the age and level of disability of the patient, according to a release by the ministry. The formula include a base compensation of Rs 20 lakh and an additional Rs 10 lakh for 'non pecuniary' damages, which are damages that cannot be readily quantified. "This will be a big relief for patients," health secretary Preeti Sudan told ET. "This has been done in a consultative process," she added. J&J globally recalled these implants in 2010, including from India, after a British study found the models to have higher failure rates, which means there was a higher chance of patients requiring a revision surgery to replace them.

Flash - 400 Swedish women win compensation over faulty French breast implants - France 24. A French court on Thursdayordered the German safety certifier that approved defective breast implants for use to compensate around 400 Swedish women who received the devices behind a global health scare. The court in the Paris suburb of Nanterre ordered TUV to pay 4,600 euros ($5,200) to each of the Swedish plaintiffs for the harm caused by approving implants made by French firm Poly Implant Prothese (PIP). It also ordered the company to reimburse the cost of having the implants -- which were filled with a cheap industrial-grade silicone gel used in electronic equipment -- removed.

It comes a month after France's highest appeals court ordered that TUV be retried for negligence over its role in the affair, after being initially cleared of liability by a lower court. After a separate trial the company had already been ordered to pay 60 million euros ($69 million) as a deposit for potential compensation for 20,000 women who received the defective implants.

Unneeded Transvaginal Mesh Implants Removed for Profit - Saunders & Walker PA. In recent years, there have been a growing number of transvaginal mesh lawsuits brought against the manufacturers like Johnson & Johnson, Ethicon, Bard, Boston Scientific, Coloplast, and Cook.

In some situations, after a pelvic mesh attorney files a claim against the manufacturer, the case is then combined into one of several vaginal mesh class action lawsuits. The problem with the transvaginal mesh was it was not fully tested before being released on the market. The FDA (Food & Drug Administration) mistakenly fast-tracked the approval process based on previous approvals for other surgical mesh products like the mesh used to repair hernias.

The manufacturers of transvaginal mesh products took advantage of this FDA’s 501(k) program—the program that allowed them to sidestep the normal approval processes. In addition, the FDA did not even take the time to require any type of studies to determine any potential side-effects or risks of using the transvaginal mesh products. Ethicon Mesh Lawsuit Alleges Prolene Hernia Patch Entangled Man's Spermatic Cord - Can Transvaginal Mesh Surgery Be Reversed? Thompsons Solicitors welcomes senior UK doctors’ calls for public inquiry into vaginal mesh surgery.

Tens of thousands of women in England are believed to have been treated with vaginal mesh implants, slings and tapes in the past decade, according to figures obtained by the Guardian.

The surgery sees a plastic mesh inserted to support the bowel, bladder or womb, often to treat childbirth complications, such as urinary incontinence and organ prolapse. However, at a meeting in parliament organised by Pontypridd Labour MP Owen Smith, campaign group Sling the Mesh called for the practice to be stopped. Carl Heneghan, professor of evidence-based medicine at the University of Oxford, and Sohier Elneil, consultant urogynaecologist at University College Hospital, said complication rates for some types of the surgery appeared to be unacceptably high.

Sensationalized in the UK: The Biting Vagina The “Biting Vagina” story first told by Theresa Bartram on her Facebook page has been sensationalized by the Daily Mail, reporting that she “was left with a Venus flytrap vagina that 'bit' her partner during sex after surgery for incontinence that went horribly wrong.” Bartram’s TVT led to serious problems including ‘ripping a chunk’ from her partner’s penis.

Transvaginal Mesh Deaths Reported as Injuries? “A good number of attorneys have reported transvaginal mesh adverse events to the FDA on behalf of their clients/patients, but over 23,000 reports are from physicians,” says Madris Tomes, founder of Device Events and former FDA Program Manager.

“Physicians are not great at reporting— this is a HUGE number.” During her tenure at the FDA, Tomes worked on the agency’s adverse event reporting program. She can search the entire FDA medical device adverse events data since 1996. For instance, Tomes recently investigated Essure complaints and found 303 reports referencing these fetal “death like” terms—reported as injuries rather than deaths-- and provided the information to Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick with the goal to remove Essure from the market.

Turning her attention to transvaginal mesh, Tomes looked at the FDA’s MAUDE database that houses reports of adverse events involving medical devices. The FDA data also shows 126,349 reports of mesh adverse events and 49 recalls. Even More Warnings for Transvaginal Mesh - Dangerous Medicines.
