A plaintiff in a transvaginal mesh lawsuit in West Virginia will soon know the outcome of her case against C. R. Bard. The first bellwether trial in the C. R. Bard multidistrict litigation in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia is approaching completion with closing arguments being presented on August 14.
The jury also heard expert witness testimony from defense witness and medical doctor, John Heller, and Christopher Doerr, a doctor who has provided treatment to the plaintiff. According to a report on the bellwether trial from Drug Watch, the two medical doctors were not in agreement on whether the plaintiff’s pain and injuries were caused by C. R. Bard’s Avaulta transvaginal mesh.
The plaintiff in the federal bellwether trial is Donna Cisson, who claims that after undergoing surgery to implant C. R. Bard’s Avaulta Plus transvaginal mesh, she experienced incredible pain, suffering, and injury. Additionally, the plaintiff underwent a number of surgical procedures to remove the transvaginal mesh and repair injuries that the plaintiff claims were caused by C. R. Bard’ surgical mesh.
In its own investigations into the side effects of transvaginal mesh, Carey Danis & Lowe transvaginal mesh lawyers have noted that, in some cases, patients have reported that transvaginal mesh has been the cause of organ damage, intense pain in the pelvic region, bleeding, and infection.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has also looked into the matter of transvaginal mesh implantation for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse (POP). In their review of the available data, the FDA observed that patients most often reported transvaginal mesh erosion and contraction.
