Investigation and multiple pending claims against Mentor Corporation, a Johnson & Johnson company, relating to is OB Tape Vaginal Sling.
The OB Tape vaginal sling is a surgically implanted medical device designed to replace eroded or weakened muscles in the urethra that cause urinary incontinence, a condition characterized by an involuntary loss of urine that occurs during physical activity, such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercise. Manufactured by Mentor Corporation, the Ob Tape vaginal sling was sold between 2003 and 2006. After just 3 years on the market, the OB Tape sling was permanently recalled in 2006 due to numerous serious complications experienced by women who received the device during bladder surgery. By that time, however, more than 50,000 women had already been implanted with the OB Tape vaginal sling. The OB Tape vaginal sling's defect was in its non-woven design, which blocks needed oxygen and nutrients from reaching vaginal tissues.
