A New Ethicon Mesh Causes Deaths And InjuryThe U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has atleast 10 reported adverse incident reports of deaths due to a new Ethicon synthetic mesh Device. Ethicon has 100’s of polypropylene vaginal mesh lawsuits filed for the failed vaginal mesh and bladder sling. The Physiomesh is made with the same substance and is another Ethicon fiasco.
Mesh Made Of Polypropylene-
Vaginal Mesh- Hernia Mesh LawyersPhysiomesh has increased risks because it was designed with a lower level of elasticity compared to competing hernia mesh products. This may cause poor attachment to the interior abdominal wall and retraction/contraction, ripping and failing.
Complications of vaginal mesh implant deterioration and failureSevere pelvic, genital or groin pain. Recurrence of prolapse or incontinence. Nerve damage. Vaginal scarring. Degrading of the mesh. Urinary tract infections Ethicon mesh for vaginal prolapse repair or urinary incontinence or for hernia mesh is causing sever medical complications and lawyers are accepting lawsuits.
What Is The Physiomesh?The Physiomesh is a hernia repair mesh made from polypropylene just like the vaginal mesh products. The FDA originally approved Ethicon’s Physiomesh on April 9, 2010. Ethicon used the FDA 510(k) approval program for the Physiomesh. This allowed them to get it on the market fast.
Problems With The PhysiomeshNumerous studies have shown that the Physiomesh has lower incorporation strengths than the other hernia mesh products. Physiomesh coating issues were observed over time to lead to scar plate formation, but little to no abdominal wall adherence.

Is There A Risk of Talcum Powder Causing Ovarian Cancer?Talcum powder lawsuits claim Talcum Powder caused ovarian cancer. When used as a feminine hygiene product, talc particles can travel through the vagina and into the ovaries and remain trapped for years. These talc particles can cause inflammation and eventually lead to the growth of ovarian cancer cells.
Studies Claim Dangers Of Talcum PowderAlthough Johnson & Johnson maintains that talcum powder is safe for use, plaintiffs in ovarian cancer lawsuits offer studies that suggest an association between talc and ovarian cancer dating as far back as 1971. In 1994, Johnson & Johnson was put on notice of a link between talc and ovarian cancer. A letter was sent from the Cancer Prevention Coalition to the then-CEO of the company.

IVC Filter Lawyers Advise – Bard IVC Filter Lawsuits ConsolidatedBard IVC Filter lawsuits have been transferred to a federal court in Arizona. IVC Filter lawyers of Class Action Lawyer Network will help victims injured by the defective IVC filters.
IVC Filter MDLA transfer order filed Monday, in the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML), resulted in all present and future federal product liability lawsuits against inferior vena cava filter (IVC filter) manufacturers, C.R. Bard, Inc. and Bard Peripheral Vascular, Inc. (BPV), to be centralized in a multidistrict litigation (MDL) in the District of Arizona.
What Are IVC Filters?IVC filters are surgical implants that catch blood clots before they travel to the lungs to avoid causing a pulmonary embolism. The Bard IVC Filter devices are fracturing, tilting, migrating, or puncturing the vena cava.
FDA Vena Cava Filter WarningsThe U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a safety warning in 2010, citing that more than 900 IVC Filter adverse event reports were filed over five years A study published in the April 2013 edition of Jama Internal Medicine, found that less than 10% of retrievable IVC filters surveyed were successfully removed. They also reported that 8% of persons surveyed still suffered venous thrombotic events while the IVC filter was in place. In 2014, the FDA issued an updated warning to doctors recommending that IVC filters be removed within one to two months once the need for the filter has passed. They noted that doctors may not have previously been made aware of the urgency surrounding retrieval of the device.

Class action lawyers announce another DePuy recall: DePuy Hip replacement and custom joint implants
DePuy has been forced to recall another product. FDA Forces DePuy Recall of Custom Joint Implants
September 5, 2012 by: Linda Grayling
DePuy Orthopaedics is being forced to recall yet another line of hip and other artificial joint implants. This time, the Johnson & Johnson subsidiary is pulling back its custom orthopedic devices because of U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) safety concerns. The recall notice was issued on August 24 — two years after its ASR hip-implant recall.
DePuy agreed in January 2012 to stop manufacturing the custom devices after a warning letter from the FDA. In it, the agency said the implants were being sold without federal approval, which requires an application with the FDA and clinical trials. DePuy argued that the devices were exempt because they were already approved by the FDA and modified only by doctors’ prescriptions, which is permitted by law.
But the FDA disagreed: “Although the devices’ size and shape may vary with each patient’s anatomy, the standardized design characteristics do not vary among the devices manufactured. The fact that final specifications are tailored to match a patient’s anatomy does not preclude a clinical study or submission of a marketing application for the devices.”
The FDA also said DePuy used poor quality-control systems in the production of the 14 types of custom implants. It ordered the company to recall any implants that had been delivered to surgeons prior to the halt in manufacturing earlier this year. More than 8,300 customized DePuy implants have been sold since 1999, but the number of unused devices in the recall is unknown.
DePuy already is dealing with a massive global recall of 93,000 ASR hip-replacement and hip-resurfacing devices that was announced in August 2010. The defective metal-on-metal hip implants have been shown to fail within a few years, resulting in painful revision surgeries. Typically, all-metal hip implants are expected to last about 15 years.
In addition, the DePuy artificial hips produce metal shavings when the ball and socket components grind against each other, causing metallosis, or metal poisoning of the blood. One British study found that when the metal debris becomes embedded in surrounding tissues, it increases the patient’s risk of bladder and kidney cancers.
In the United States, more than 8,000 patients have filed lawsuits against DePuy over their dangerous hip implants. Of those, 6,000 federal cases are part of a multidistrict litigation (MDL) that is being overseen by Judge David A. Katz in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio. The first case in the MDL is expected to go to trial in March or April 2013.
The remaining state cases are winding their way through the courts. The first three DePuy ASR lawsuits, which were scheduled to be tried together in Las Vegas, Nevada, were settled out of court recently. Bloomberg reported the plaintiffs each received about $200,000.
