Bard Avaulta Mesh Lawsuit

Bard Avaulta Mesh lawsuits are being filed by attorneys on behalf of potential victims of side effects including surgical mesh erosion or infection, pelvic organ prolapse, and stress urinary incontinence.  Contact a surgical mesh injury attorney if you have been affected to discuss your legal options.

According to a recent FDA warning, the transvaginal placement of surgical mesh devices like Bard Avaulta mesh may be linked to the development of severe side effects in patients. Bard Avaulta mesh is currently manufactured by C.R. Bard, Inc. and is used in the treatment of stress urinary continence (SUI) and pelvic organ prolapse (POP), two serious conditions which can cause severe pain and problems with bowel or bladder function. The side effects potentially linked to surgical mesh products like Bard Avaulta mesh are so severe that some patients may actually require additional surgery to remove the defective device. Unfortunately, because Bard Avaulta surgical mesh allows for tissue infiltration, it is especially dangerous to remove the vaginal mesh, and may cause permanent injury like scarring of the pelvic tissues and muscles, hemorrhage, and permanent disfigurement. If you or a loved one has used Bard Avaulta mesh and have since suffered serious side effects, fill out the Bard Avaulta Claim Review Form, as you may have grounds to file a Bard Avaulta mesh lawsuit against C.R. Bard.

What Went Wrong With Bard Avaulta Mesh

Over the past three years, the FDA has received over 1,000 reports from nine surgical mesh manufacturers of complications that were associated with surgical mesh devices used to repair POP and SUI. Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when a pelvic organ, like the bladder, drops from its normal position and pushes against the walls of the vagina. POP often happens when the muscles that hold the pelvic organs in place become weak or stretched from surgery or childbirth. Stress urinary incontinence is a type of incontinence caused by leakage of urine during moment of physical stress. Although Bard Avaulta mesh has been approved to treat these conditions, the possible benefits of the treatment may be outweighed by the severe side effects potentially linked to the medical device.

Some of the more serious side effects of surgical mesh products like Bard Avaulta mesh include:
