Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit MDL Moving Forward

A transvaginal mesh lawsuit multidistrict litigation has been formed and the cases will be consolidated in the Southern District of West Virginia. As in other MDL cases, the transvaginal mesh lawsuits will be consolidated for purposes of improving efficiency in the discovery and pre-trial investigation phase of the lawsuits.
Vaginal mesh lawsuits have been filed on behalf of women who’ve had a vaginal mesh surgically inserted in order to repair one of two conditions-either pelvic organ prolapse or female urinary incontinence. The meshes have not been proven to fix either issue and have caused other serious organ damage and often require further surgery to repair the problems caused by the surgical vaginal mesh procedure.
