Avaulta Mesh Lawsuit

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{:target="_blank"} 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.

Have you experienced transvaginal mesh side effects or complications with the Avaulta vaginal sling? Fill out our free case review form today and our defective product attorneys will determine, at no cost to you, whether you can file an Avaulta transvaginal mesh lawsuit to recover financial compensation.

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:

  • Infection
  • Pain (including pain during sex)
  • Bowel, bladder and blood vessel perforation
  • Vaginal scarring
  • Mesh erosion
  • Internal bleeding
  • Urinary problems

Other side effects of the Avaulta transvaginal mesh include deformation of vaginal tissues, pelvic pain, rectal problems and permanent nerve damage. These Avaulta mesh side effects may be treated by completely or partially removing the surgical mesh with the return of pelvic organ prolapse, a condition which the product is intended to treat. Bladder stents, colostomies and pelvic reconstruction are among the other available treatments for Avaulta mesh complications.
