On July 13, 2011, the FDA issued a warning to health care providers and patients alerting them of the risks associated with Vaginal Mesh. These FDA warnings stated a transvaginal surgery that uses a Vaginal Mesh can result in serious and painful complications. The warnings also concluded there is no known added benefit to Vaginal Mesh over traditional Pelvic Organ Prolapse ("POP") repair surgery.
Vaginal Mesh victims have filed many successful lawsuits against Mesh manufactures based on the serious injuries and complications associated with the implant. These victims have often had the mesh implanted to treat POP or stress urinary incontinence ("SUI"). Manufacturer C.R. Bard Inc. manufactures different types of mesh implants and is currently the target of lawsuits based on its defective Avaulta mesh products. Victims argue that Vaulta negligently designed its various mesh products, and failed to provide adequate warnings labels to the public.
