Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Ethicon has been hit with a $57.1 million verdict in a pelvic mesh case out of Pennsylvania, according to a report from The Inquirer.

A jury in Philadelphia ordered the subsidiary to pay the damages to a woman who was left chronically incontinent and with chronic pain after being implanted with a defective pelvic mesh implant, according to the report.

The plaintiff, Ella Ebaugh, received 2 Ethicon mesh implants which later eroded into her urethra, according to The Inquirer, and required 3 surgeries to remove the meshes.
