J&J has been reported to conduct a global product recall on some of their seemingly faulty bladder mesh implants. The company is anticipated to fully halt sales of these medical devices at the first quarter of 2013. There is information at http://www.bladdermeshlawsuit.us that could be of great help to people concerned and interested.

More and more women are filing lawsuits against J&J due to serious complications arising from their mesh implants. As a result, the company has reportedly decided to discontinue sales of some of their pelvic sling implants worldwide. See http://www.bladderslingrecall.us for weekly updates about issues involving bladder or mesh slings.

It is indeed a very high failure rate and to think action on recalling came very late. It had to take thousands of women to suffer before concrete actions were taken. These are the stories of women who suffered as relayed in sites such as http://www.prweb.com/releases/rottenstein-law...

I am glad to hear that Linda Gross won the case against J&J. She finally gets compensated for the suffering and injuries she may have gone through. This may encourage more women to advance with their complaints. I also came across this post bladdermeshlawsuit.us/transvag inal-mesh-lawsuits/ and found that other major mesh makers are also facing increasing numbers of legal challenges at hand, in addition to J&J.

Even with those negative results, they still insisted on selling this product even without clearance from the FDA. It has been alleged that even their own researchers warned against pushing through with this product. Yet, because of business considerations, the product was made available and has now caused pain and suffering to thousands of women. As of February this year, there are already over 6,000 pending cases against J&J. Learn more about this by checking http://www.zuarticles.com/author-details-19-8...
