Avaulta Mesh Complications

The FDA first warned the public about problems with transvaginal mesh systems in October 2008. The FDA released this warning after receiving more than 1000 reports of vaginal mesh complications from nine different surgical mesh companies, including C.R. Bard which markets the Avaulta Biosynthetic, Avaulta Plus and Avaulta Solo. Reported complications with the Avaulta mesh include the following:

  • Infection
  • Inflammation
  • Deformation and scarring of vaginal tissues
  • Permanent nerve damage
  • Pelvic pain
  • Pain during sex
  • Vaginal and/or rectal problems
  • Mesh erosion or extrusion

Other side effects of the vaginal mesh may include urinary problems and bladder, bowel and blood vessel perforation during insertion. In some instances, the pain and discomfort caused by vaginal scarring and mesh erosion have led to a decrease in the patient’s quality of life.

Women who are experiencing problems with the Avaulta mesh often require treatment, which may include complete or partial removal of the mesh, with the return of pelvic organ prolapse, an uncomfortable condition which causes the pelvic organs to drop or fall out of place. Because the Avaulta surgical mesh was designed to allow tissue infiltration, removing the surgical mesh system is often a complicated procedure. In most cases, multiple surgeries are required. However, according to the FDA, additional surgeries performed to treat vaginal mesh complications may or may not be effective.

Avaulta Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits

Several Avaulta transvaginal mesh lawsuits have already been filed, each with similar allegations. These vaginal mesh lawsuits allege that C.R. Bard designed the mesh in such a way that deprives the surrounding tissue from nutrients and oxygen, which can interfere with the healing process, and failed to warn patients and doctors of possible surgical mesh complications.
