The C.R. Bard bellwether transvaginal mesh trial in the U.S. District for the Southern District of West Virginia
completed its first week on August 2. The plaintiff in the case, Donna Cisson, filed a transvaginal mesh lawsuit against medical device manufacturer C.R. Bard claiming that she sustained serious injuries following an implant of the Avaulta surgical mesh.
At the end of the first week, the court heard testimony from an expert expert witness, Anthony Brennan, a professor of Materials Science and Engineering and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Florida Gainesville. Brennan testified that the Avaulta vaginal mesh represents a poorly designed product manufactured from an unsafe material that is unsuitable for internal use.
The case is Cisson v. C.R. Bard Inc., MDL-2187; 2:11-cv-00195.
There are currently 4,156 cases consolidated into the C.R. Bard mesh multidistrict litigation (MDL). In addition the the C.R. Bard MDL, there are five other mesh MDLs being heard in the West Virginia federal court, with over 23,000 pending transvaginal mesh lawsuits.
