During the six-week long trial the jury heard testimony from Mrs. Linda Gross that she sustained serious injuries from the Prolift mesh she had implanted in 2005 to treat Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP). Specifically, Gross testified that Ethicon's Prolift vaginal mesh implant has rendered her unable to work, have sex with her husband, or sit comfortably for more than 20 minutes at a time. Prolift, manufactured by Ethicon, a J&J subsidiary, was withdrawn from the market several months ago by Ethicon.
Thousands of women have endured implantation of Ethicon’s Prolift mesh and have suffered serious physical injuries. Worse, many of these women have undergone several additional surgeries in an attempt to repair the damage done by the Prolift mesh and to remove move the mesh from their bodies. These injuries are often debilitating and extremely painful.
