Bard Avaulta Mesh Lawsuits

Bard Avaulta mesh lawsuits are defective medical device cases in which women who have sustained serious injuries as a result of using this vaginal mesh sling seek compensation for their medical bills, decreased quality of life, permanent disabilities, pain and suffering. The Bard Avaulta mesh sling (or patch) is a surgically implanted device that is intended to bolster vaginal walls that have been weakened by certain surgeries or multiple childbirths. In general, the Bard Avaulta mesh patch is used to treat:

  • pelvic organ prolapse (POP), a condition in which lack of support from the vaginal walls in the pelvic regions causes the bladder, uterine tissue, or rectum to fall out of place
  • stress urinary incontinence (SUI), an inability to control urination when exerting pressure on your bladder when coughing, sneezing, lifting heavy objects, laughing, etc.

Although effective for some women in the treatment of SUI and POP, many others have developed some serious, painful and debilitating side effects as a result of factors that may include (but aren't limited too):

  • concomitant procedures (other surgeries performed at the same place as the insertion of the mesh patch)
  • the material the mesh patch is made of
  • the size and shape of the patch used
  • use of an improper surgical procedure for insertion

Side Effects Spurring Bard Avaulta Mesh Litigation

Some of the serious side effects that have caused women to initiate a Bard Avaulta mesh lawsuit include:
