UK May Ban Vaginal Mesh Implant, Potentially Sparking Scrutiny in US

Newsweek reports the UK’s National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) could recommend a vaginal mesh implant for treating pelvic organ relapse be limited to use for research due to its links to “serious and painful complications.” The piece says that in the UK, nearly “one in 15 women who had the mesh implanted…eventually had it taken out,” adding that in the US, about “55,000 people are suing Johnson & Johnson, a major manufacturer of the product.” The piece adds that the US FDA “does not regulate doctors’ medical decisions directly, but if the agency were to take the extraordinary step of mandating a recall of the devices, that could be binding on manufacturers,” adding that the FDA “has known for several years about the hazards of this product.”

From the news release of the American Association for Justice.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
