A surgical mesh used to treat pelvic organ prolapse, the Bard Avaulta vaginal mesh has been linked to a number of side effects, including infection, painful intercourse and pelvic pain. The FDA first alerted consumers to the transvaginal mesh complications in 2008 when it released a warning about problems with surgical mesh products, and has since found that women undergoing pelvic organ prolapse repair surgery with a transvaginal mesh have a higher risk of complications than those undergoing other surgical options. Since the release of the FDA warning regarding the products, several transvaginal mesh lawsuits have been filed, alleging that the manufacturer, C.R. Bard, failed to properly design the surgical mesh and neglected to adequately inform patients and doctors of its risks. For more information, contact Avaulta Mesh Lawyer Timothy L. Miles today.
Transvaginal Mesh Side Effects: FDA Warning
In July 2011, the FDA announced that the transvaginal placement of surgical mesh, such as the Avaulta Plus, Avaulta Solo or Avaulta Biosynthetic, can put patients at a greater risk for mesh complications than other surgical options. This was not the FDA's first announcement regarding vaginal mesh complications, as the agency had previously released a public health notification concerning the risks associated with the transvaginal placement of surgical mesh used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence.
In October 2008, the FDA issued a warning, which stated that patients implanted with transvaginal mesh products, including the Avaulta surgical mesh, were at risk for serious complications. At this point, the FDA received more than 1000 reports of surgical mesh complications, including:
Avaulta Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits
Avaulta vaginal mesh complications can cause permanent physical damage and deformities. In addition to physical pain from the surgical mesh side effects and corrective surgeries, women may also experience self-esteem and psychological issues due to the Avaulta mesh complications. Patients who are experiencing problems with the Bard Avaulta vaginal sling may be able to participate in a transvaginal mesh lawsuit to recover financial compensation.
Several transvaginal mesh lawsuits have already been filed, alleging that the surgical device can cause serious complications, including mesh erosion through the vaginal wall. If you or a loved one has experienced Avaulta vaginal mesh problems, contact us today for a free case evaluation.
