American Medical System Inc. has been accused of manufacturing and distributing products that are dangerous and defective. At least one defective medical device has been specifically cited in a product liability suit filed against the company. The suit, which was filed outside of California by a wife and her husband, seeks compensation for damages related to the alleged defective product.
Back in 2011, the wife underwent a procedure to help address urinary incontinence. The Monarc Mid Urethal Sling was supposed to help with the incontinence and protect her from experiencing pelvic organ prolapse. According to the lawsuit, the AMS urethal sling ultimately did more harm than good.
