About the Author:

I’m National News Editor, Jane Akre and I began Mesh Medical Device News Desk aka Mesh News Desk (MND) in the summer of 2011 just after the Food and Drug Administration issued an explicit warning to the public that complications associated with surgical mesh used for prolapse repair (POP) and incontinence (SUI) are NOT rare! That was the starting point for the litigation you see today and thousands of lawsuits have been filed by women whose lives have been altered, some permanently, by the use of this petroleum-based product.

    Jane, Thank you so much for your tireless work on everyone’s behalf. I have been so busy and have been computer problems and have not heard any more since on Ethicon verdict. Any new news?

      I’m sorry Barbara but it is very closed mouth on these negotiations. All I hear is from the women and even those with relatively high settlement amounts are not happy. It will never be enough for your health!
