Transvaginal Mesh Settlement

The transvaginal mesh litigation (TVM) is heading for a global settlement. A Special Master has been appointed to forge settlement talks between C.R. Bard and women who allege the mesh and bladder sling company's products left them with painful and serious injuries.

There are presently more than 75,000 lawsuits in federal court involving TVM made by Bard, American Medical Systems (AMS), Ethicon, Boston Scientific, Coloplast Corp., Cook Medical and Neomedic. The multi district litigations have been centralized in U.S. District in the Southern District of West Virginia for discovery and pretrial proceedings in front of Judge Joseph Goodwin.

So far only AMS has settled the majority of claims involving their products, agreeing to pay about $1.6 billion to resolve more than 20,000 claims. On February 12, a Special Master was appointed in the Bard litigation to help jump start serious settlement talks.
