Johnson and Johnson Hernia Mesh Harming Women

Another Johnson and Johnson product is receiving adverse reports for complications and mesh failure. This product is the Johnson and Johnson Ethicon hernia mesh. In our continuing attempt to help women injured by dangerous drugs, devices and consumer products, we have lawyers filing hernia mesh lawsuits for victims.

Physiomesh Causing Complications

 

The Physiomesh is a flexible composite mesh that is used in hernia repair.  It is made from  polypropylene, the same  mesh is also used to reinforce the vaginal wall in transvaginal mesh surgery.  This the same vaginal mesh that has been falling apart in women.

Johnson and Johnson Withdraws Physiomesh

In May of 2016, Ethicon  issued a worldwide recall of Physiomesh. The recall was based on the fact that the medical product was associated with a higher risk of  complications, including the need for additional surgeries. Many women who underwent hernia repair surgeries that used Physiomesh experienced mesh failure  events.

FDA On Physiomesh

A November 2010 report notes  “tears, rips, holes in device” are reported, leading to “minimal adhesion” and removal of the mesh. A February 2012 report in which a patient, who underwent hernia repair surgery that used Physiomesh, returned one week  after surgery with complaints of vomiting, constipation, and abdominal pain and distention. The  symptoms were a result of the Physiomesh. Ethicon did issue a voluntary recall  and was not mandated by the FDA to do so.

Talcum Powder Dangerous and They Never Told You

The Talcum Powder Lawsuit Helpline continues to keep woman updated on the news regarding the link between Talcum Powder products and ovarian cancer. We continue to be amazed and horrified as we learn again and again THEY KNEW and never told us about this link. Didn’t anyone tell them that ovarian cancer can be fatal and destroy lives. We can lose our mothers, grandmothers, wives, daughters, friends and women we love and care about from this fatal disease.

We found this article online written by a dermatologist and would like to share it with our readers. We will be commenting as well.

Why we should all be more careful when sprinkling the talcum powder
by MiriamStoppard
Studies have linked talc to ovarian cancer, especially if used in the genital area, and it can also act as an irritant. It may feel soft and soothing but there are health risks to talc. As a dermatologist, I’ve never been keen on talcum powder. It can accumulate in skin creases and irritate, and its particles can act as an abrasive.

I’m even less happy using talcum powder on babies whose delicate skin is much more vulnerable to damage.

There was a scare a few decades back which linked talcum powder granules to bowel disease, such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease .

In 1991, Welsh scientists also ­discovered particles of talc embedded in ovarian and cervical cancers.

A report out earlier this year linked the use of talc on genitals with a 44% increase in invasive ovarian cancer among African American women.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer in 2006 also classified talcum powder as a possible human carcinogen if used in the female genital area.

But cancer is difficult to understand because it develops over a long period and can be influenced by several factors, including lifestyle, genes and environment. Talc is a natural clay mineral composed of magnesium and silicon.
Researchers have found links to ovarian cancer
Because of its softness it’s often used in cosmetic products, such as blusher, because it prevents caking and absorbs excess moisture.

It’s also added into some tablets and chewing gum. Talc residues are often found near asbestos , a known carcinogen which means manufacturers have to take strong measures to avoid contamination when it is mined.

Some women like to use the powder on their inner thighs to prevent chafing, while others sprinkle it on their underwear to stay fresh.

But in 1982, Harvard professor Dr Daniel W Cramer and his colleagues compared 215 women with ovarian cancer and 215 healthy women who served as a control group.

Women who used talcum powder were at nearly twice the risk of having ovarian cancer than non-users. Those who used it regularly on their genitals and sanitary pads were at more than three times the risk.

Why talc use might lead to cancer is not clear. Studies have shown that talc crystals can move up the genitourinary tract into the peritoneal cavity, where the ovaries are.

And because talc ­particles can set off inflammation, and inflammation plays an important role in the development of ovarian cancer – and any other cancer – could be a likely mechanism.

Now baby powder carries a warning to keep out of reach of children. And pediatricians, as well as dermatologists, discourage its use on babies, who can become ill or die after breathing in the particles.

You have been warned.

The Talcum Powder Lawsuit Helpline suggests. Cornstarch can serve the same purpose and is alot less dangerous. We continue to get calls on a daily basis from women horrified by the news of the dangers of Talcum Powder. Many have lost a loved one to ovarian cancer. Many remember having had the powder sprinkled on them as babies and have used it on their babies. The woman of America are stunned at how this household name is now a danger to their lives. If you believe your diagnosis of ovarian cancer or you have lost a loved one to this disease and it is related to daily use of Talcum Powder products we encourage you to join other woman and families in the Talcum Powder Lawsuit.

Talcum Powder Lawsuits Headed For Consolidation- MDL Status

It looks like the Talcum Powder lawsuits will be consolidated in a multi District litigation. A Multi District Litigation results in  all the ovarian cancer  lawsuits under one judge in one jurisdiction. The Talcum Powder Lawsuit Helpline continues to keep you updated on the progress of the Talcum Powder Lawsuits.
There have been more than 1,200 talcum powder ovarian cancer lawsuits  filed against Johnson & Johnson in state and federal courts.

A talcum powder lawsuit motion has been filed with the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) seeking  to  consolidate  all  ovarian cancer lawsuits  in a single court, under one judge  in order to coordinate pretrial proceedings and make the process easier.  The chosen venue  suggested is the  U.S. District Court, Southern District of Illinois.

The motion claims  that the current ovarian cancer  plaintiffs reside in several different states and that the Southern District of Illinois would permit convenient travel for the parties and counsel.

Talcum Powder Lawsuit Helpline is reaching out to women who were diagnosed with ovarian cancer following years of regular, repeated use of talcum powder  products for feminine hygiene purposes.

Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Lawsuits

All of the talcum powder lawsuits have one thing in common. They claim that regular repeated and long term use  of Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower-to-Shower products to the genital area  can increase a woman’s risk of being  diagnosed with  ovarian cancer. All the lawsuits  claim  that talc particles can make their way into the vagina and migrate to the ovaries.  The accumulation of talc particles and the constant irritation and inflammation  can promote the growth of cancer cells. A number of studies published since the 1970s have suggested  a link.   Johnson & Johnson has failed to take any steps to warn women of this possible risk and link between Talc products and ovarian cancer.

More than 1,200 talcum powder lawsuits have been filed against Johnson & Johnson nationwide.   In April, a St. Louis jury awarded $55 million  to an ovarian cancer victim who used Johnson & Johnson’s talc-based powders for nearly 40 years  for  feminine hygiene . In February, another Missouri trial  resulted in  an award of $72 million for the family of a woman who died from ovarian cancer  after using talc products for more than 30 years.

It is important for woman between the ages of 40 and 60 who used Talcum powder products to see their doctor and get tested for ovarian cancer. Ovarian cancer is a silent killer and once the symptoms appear it could be too late. The 2 tests used most often to screen for ovarian cancer are transvaginal ultrasound (TVUS) and the CA-125 blood test. TVUS is a test that uses sound waves to look at the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries by putting an ultrasound wand into the vagina.

The helpline has qualified and experienced female lawyers and lead counsels in their  network. Ovarian cancer Helpline lawyers have been dedicated to the representation of class action claims involving defective medical products harming women for many years.
