Bard Avaulta Surgical Mesh Lawsuit

Some women who suffer from pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI) have relied on transvaginal mesh products, including the Bard Avaulta Mesh, to help alleviate symptoms that have significantly altered their lives. However, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned medical practitioners and the public about the serious complications that the placement of surgical mesh products can cause.

Mesh Devices and Medical Complications

Pelvic organ prolapse affects a woman when her bladder, uterus, bowel, or rectum, drops (“prolapses”) from its normal position and pushes against the walls of the vagina. More than one of these pelvic organs can drop simultaneously. This condition typically occurs if the muscles that hold a woman’s pelvic organs in place lose strength or become stretched from childbirth or surgery. Surgical mesh products were created to relieve pain or problems with bowel and bladder functions as well as sexual activity.

Women experience stress urinary incontinence when they involuntarily excrete urine during moments of physical stress. The Bard Avaulta mesh product was eagerly marketed to physicians to help regulate a woman’s bladder control in addition to providing comfort and relief from pain caused by pelvic organ prolapse. The mesh devices are placed transvaginally through an incision made in the wall of the vagina during surgery.

Transvaginal Mesh Complications

The FDA has received more than 1,000 reports from nine surgical mesh manufacturers regarding complications associated with surgical mesh devices used to repair POP and SUI conditions. As a consequence of mesh complications, some patients had to undergo additional surgical procedures, some of which were to remove the mesh and others included IV therapy, blood transfusions, and drainage of hematomas or abscesses.

Some of the most common mesh complications have included erosion of the mesh into the vagina, pain, infection, urinary problems and recurrence of the prolapsed organs and/or incontinence. Scarring of the vagina and the erosion of the mesh in the vagina has caused some women to experience severe discomfort and pain, including during sexual intercourse. Other problems included damage to the bowel, bladder, and blood vessels.

Women who experience serious surgical mesh complications have not only suffered physically. The emotional trauma associated with the medical conditions caused by Bard Avaulta mesh product complications cannot be easily forgotten.
