Summary Judgment Upheld on a Failure to Warn Claim

The Fourth Circuit upheld summary judgment on a failure to warn claim regarding alleged injuries associated with the use of a vaginal mesh device, making clear that it is insufficient for plaintiff to argue that a stronger warning would have caused her to withhold consent to use a drug or device.  The relevant test is whether a stronger warning would have changed her doctor’s decision to prescribe.
