Johnson & Johnson to Buy Mentor Corp. for $1.07 Billion

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Mentor Corporation, the maker of the defective Mentor ObTape Vaginal Sling, is being acquired by Johnson & Johnson for $1.07 billion. In a press release, Johnson & Johnson said its acquisition of Mentor gives it  “an opportunity to strengthen its presence in aesthetic and reconstructive medicine.”

Johnson & Johnson said Mentor would operate as a stand-alone business unit reporting through its subsidiary, Ethicon Inc.  Under the terms of the agreement, Johnson & Johnson will commence a tender offer to purchase all outstanding shares of Mentor at $31.00 per share. 

The Mentor ObTape Vaginal Sling was first marketed by Mentor in 2003. The device was meant to treat stress urinary incontinence, an embarrassing loss of bladder control that afflicts 13 million people. While it was on the market, the Mentor ObTape was implanted in some 35 million women worldwide.  Mentor ObTape lawsuits filed on behalf of 95 plaintiffs are currently pending in 12 different federal district courts.

The poor design of the Mentor ObTape did not allow surrounding tissue to receive nutrients and oxygen, which impaired healing.  As a result, between 17 and 18 percent of the women who were implanted with a Mentor ObTape Vaginal Sling suffered from complications, with many forced to undergo a difficult surgical procedure to have the device removed. The problems associated with the Mentor ObTape Vaginal Sling were so severe and widespread that finally, in 2006 Mentor stopped making and marketing the device.

In 2006, the Journal of Urology published a study that examined an unusually high number of complications caused by one type of surgical mesh, the Mentor ObTape Vaginal Sling. The study looked at  67 women who had been implanted with the Mentor ObTape Vaginal Sling, and found that more than 13 percent developed vaginal extrusions. Another eight developed a chronic vaginal discharge, and one patient developed an abscess of the left thigh that tracked to the incision site.
