Bard® Hernia Mesh Device Product Lawsuits
Hernia Mesh Attorneys Are On Your Side
Mesh manufacturer C.R. Bard® and it’s subsidy Davol® are one of the leading manufacturers in hernia mesh. While the FDA continues to quickly approve hernia untested hernia mesh products, the general public continues to suffer. There are over 1,000,000 hernia meshes implanted every year in the United States. Many of the most dangerous hernia meshes still remain on the market and have not recalled by the FDA. These products include:
- 3D Max
- Composix E/X
- Composix Kugel
- Composix Kugel (Modified)
- Curasoft Patch
- Marlex (Soft Mesh)
- Perfix Plug
- Sepramesh IP Composite
- Ventralex ST
- Ventrio ST
What is Hernia Mesh?
Hernia mesh is a screen-like surgical implant that is used to repair a hernia. Studies have shown that mesh is somewhat effective at preventing hernia reoccurrence, causing repair surgery with hernia mesh to be a standard for hernia repair. However, a large number of hernia mesh products have been recalled, leaving patients suffering from complications, and often needing revision surgery.
Due to the reported defects in the hernia mesh products listed below, there have been an increase of defective product lawsuits filed on behalf of the hernia mesh victims. These hernia mesh defective product lawsuits claim that Bard and it’s subsidiary company did not fully warn the public about the possible side-affects when using this product. We have already seen damage awards in one lawsuit in excess of $1.4 million with many more lawsuits awaiting trial.
Mesh Recalled Based on High Rates of Complications
There are numerous recalls on hernia mesh products. The FDA update states “Most of the complications reported to us so far have been associated with mesh products that have been recalled and are no longer on the market.” However many patients with hernia mesh are experiencing similar symptoms. Pain, infection, recurrence, adhesion, obstruction, and perforation are the most common complications associated with recalled mesh.
For more information on the recalled products, please visit the FDA Medical Device Recall website. Please visit the Medical & Radiation Emitting Device Database to search a specific type of surgical mesh.
