Our lawyers are reviewing potential Avaulta vaginal mesh side effect lawsuits. We think these cases may have significant value. There have been two recent verdicts in these cases that have totaled more than $8 million. On February 25, 2013, a New Jersey jury awarded a plaintiff over $3 million.
The Avaulta vaginal mesh is used to treat pelvic organ prolapse which occurs when the muscles and ligaments supporting a woman’s pelvic organs weaken and slip out of place (prolapse). There are three events after which women have an increased risk of developing pelvic organ prolapse: menopause; childbirth; and hysterectomy.
The Avaulta vaginal mesh is a surgical mesh used to repair pelvic organ prolapse. The Avaulta vaginal mesh lawsuits claim that the vaginal slings were negligently designed, causing pain and other complications. The problem for many vaginal mesh users has been an erosion of the mesh into the vaginal wall causing tearing, cutting, and sometimes permanent erosion of the vaginal tissues.
These lawsuits further allege that as early as 2004, Bard knew of the concerns doctors and patients had regarding erosion, extrusion, infection, hardening of the mesh, chronic pain and worsening dyspareunia with these synthetic mesh systems, generally, and their Avaulta mesh, specifically. Had the appropriate testing been done on the Avaulta mesh system before it was rushed to the market, Bard would have discovered that the erosion rate for their product was simply unacceptable.
