Mentor Worldwide LLC Key Developments

Blizzard & Nabers Wins Mentor Worldwide, LLC Obtape Trial Verdict

Blizzard & Nabers, along with Tom Pirtle won a landmark $4.4 million jury verdict against Mentor Worldwide, LLC. Blizzard have successfully represented its client in Teresa Taylor v. Mentor Worldwide, LLC, Case No. 4:12-CV-176 (CDL), In The United States District Court For The Middle District Of Georgia, Columbus Division. The jury found that the ObTape Sling product was defective and caused the plaintiff serious harm. This product falls under the umbrella of the now infamous category of medical devices known as transvaginal mesh. Transvaginal mesh was designed to improve corrective surgeries for pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. The FDA has since issued a warning that not only is transvaginal mesh ineffective at improving the surgical odds of success, but that it can degrade and cause significant additional damage. The ObTape vaginal sling was implanted in approximately 35,000 women between 2003 and 2006 and was designed to prevent involuntary bladder leakage caused by weak pelvic muscles. As a result of a defective design that contains a nonwoven surgical mesh, the ObTape vaginal sling has been associated with a number of severe and debilitating injuries, including vaginal extrusions, urinary tract erosions and infections. Within three years of the product being introduced into the marketplace, the defective medical device was removed from the market.

Mentor Worldwide LLC Receives FDA IDE Approval for its Athena Clinical Trial

Mentor Worldwide LLC announced that it has received a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) approval to initiate its ATHENA clinical trial. The trial is designed to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of new sizes of MENTOR® MemoryGel® Breast Implants for breast reconstruction patients with larger chest widths, larger breast sizes, higher BMI or greater amounts of removed mastectomy tissue. Mentor expects to begin enrolling primary and revisionary breast reconstruction patients in the ATHENA clinical trial by April 2016. The ATHENA trial plans to enroll 600 patients at up to 35 sites nationwide and test implants manufactured using the same shell and gel as Mentor MemoryGel® Breast Implants. They will range in size from 750cc to 1445cc. As the leader in breast reconstruction, Mentor has launched multiple reconstruction solutions over the past 18 months, including new MemoryShape® Breast Implant styles and the ARTOURA™ Breast Tissue Expander. Mentor Breast Implants are backed by substantial clinical data demonstrating safety and effectiveness in primary augmentation, reconstruction and revision patients.
