A Public Health Notification issued by the FDA in October 2008 is prompting calls for a Bard Avaulta transvaginal surgical mesh recall. The Public Health Notification advised consumers and health practitioners about serious complications associated with transvaginal placement of surgical mesh used to treat Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) and Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI). Although the FDA reported having received more than 1,000 reports from nine surgical mesh manufacturers, including Bard Avaulta, of complications that were associated with these surgical mesh devices, no recall has been issued as of early 2009.

Bard Avaulta Surgical Mesh Recall Is Needed

Because no recall has been issued, many women continue to be implanted with Bard transvaginal surgical mesh. When these women experience complications, they are often unaware that the surgical mesh may be defective. Consequently, they may assume their health complications are unique and decline to have the mesh removed. A recall of the Bard surgical mesh would help avoid these problems.

Complications Prompting Bard Transvaginal Mesh Calls for Recall

The most common complications, which are prompting calls for a recall on Bard transvaginal surgical mesh products, include: pain, infection, urinary trouble, recurrence of prolapse and/or incontinence and erosion through the vaginal epithelium. Other complications related to transvaginal placement of Bard surgical mesh in repair of pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence prompting calls for a recall include discomfort and pain, including dyspareunia (pain during intercourse), from vaginal scarring and surgical mesh erosion. Transvaginal surgical mesh infections are serious complications that can be very damaging and painful to women who develop them.

Bard Transvaginal Surgical Mesh Recall Attorney

The attorneys at our law firm believe that Bard transvaginal surgical mesh is defective and should be recalled. Our attorneys believe a Bard transvaginal surgical mesh recall should be issued because our attorneys believe the defective mesh contributes to causing many of the side effects associated with transvaginal placement of Bard surgical mesh. For example, Bard transvaginal surgical mesh may inhibit surrounding tissue from receiving nutrients and oxygen, causing impaired healing, which can lead to other complications.

Although no Bard transvaginal surgical mesh recall has been issued as of early 2009, patients injured by defective Bard surgical mesh may be entitled to compensation for their injuries.
