June 13, 2019 — A woman from Michigan has filed a lawsuit after she was injured by an Ethicon TVT-O transvaginal mesh sling.
The lawsuit was filed against Ethicon Inc., a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, by a woman who was implanted with a TVT-O sling designed for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence.
The woman, R.D., was implanted with the sling on March 7, 2011 at a hospital in Michigan. Her injuries occurred while she was in Michigan.
The lawsuit was re-filed after being dismissed without prejudice on April, 11, 2018 under Pre-Trial Order 293. That order paused the statute of limitations for women who have not yet had revision surgery, until they either undergo revision surgery or receive a doctor’s recommendation to do so.
The lawsuit accuses Ethicon of negligence for selling a defective medical device, failing to warn about safety risks, fraudulent concealment, and breach of express warranty.
The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania on June 6, 2019 — Case No: 2:19-cv-02454-RK.
