Women who used Caldera Medical’s pelvic mesh implants are filing lawsuits nationwide, alleging that the company’s T-Sling and Desara vaginal mesh products cause serious injuries. Injured consumers allege that Caldera’s products cause scarring, infections, urinary tract problems, and mesh erosion. Caldera is a unit of Johnson & Johnson.
Caldera’s polypropylene mesh products are designed to treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and (POP) pelvic organ prolapse. Caldera’s Desara and T-Sling products were marketed as a treatment for SUI and POP. Many women received vaginal mesh products and found themselves in a worse position than before receiving the product. Some women who received transvaginal mesh products have been forced to undergo revision surgeries.
Some women who received Caldera T-Sling TS10 and other products allege that the device eroded and caused significant personal injuries. Manufacturers have a legal responsibility to make safe products and these lawsuits allege that vaginal mesh makers breached this responsibility. The lawsuits allege that Caldera was aware of the dangerous aspects of its vaginal mesh products but opted to continue selling and marketing them. The claims also charge Caldera with failing to properly warn patients about the risks associated with vaginal mesh products and failing to warn doctors about these dangers.
