Avaulta Vaginal Mesh Lawsuit Center Responds to Reports That C.R. Bard Used Incompatible Plastic in Vaginal Mesh Products
Avaulta Vaginal Mesh Lawsuit Center expresses disappointment at learning of the use of inappropriate materials in the manufacture of Avaulta vaginal mesh devices.
(New York, NY, June 28, 2013) The Avaulta Vaginal Mesh Lawsuit Center, an informational Web site dedicated to keeping women informed of the latest vaginal mesh news, is disappointed by word that vaginal mesh manufacturer C.R. Bard used a type of plastic incompatible with human tissue to develop its Avaulta products. Thousands of women have been permanently injured by vaginal mesh devices that were meant to correct conditions that include Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI), and Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP).
According to an article published on Bloomberg.com, Bard’s Davol division used a type of resin-based plastic manufactured by Chevron Phillips to make hernia-repair mesh, despite a warning from Chevron that it shouldn’t be permanently implanted in patients. Bloomberg further reported on emails from between 2004 and 2007 that indicated executives allegedly instructed employees to not divulge the use of the plastic. C.R. Bard officials declined to respond to questions about keeping this information secret, the Bloomberg article states.
Women who have suffered severe injuries after being implanted with mesh products made by C.R. Bard and other companies, are in the process of seeking compensation for their injuries. Thousands of lawsuits have been filed, which have been consolidated into five multidistrict litigations (MDLs 2187, 2325, 2326, 2327, and 2387) in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia.
The Avaulta Vaginal Mesh Injury Lawsuit Center encourages those who are interested in more information on vaginal mesh lawsuits to visit its Web site to learn about Avaulta vaginal mesh, and the latest updates on pending lawsuits.
