cr_bard_transvaginal_mesh_lawsuit_claims_settlementsA 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.

cr_bard_transvaginal_mesh_lawsuit_claims_settlementsThe deposition of a former C.R. Bard president responsible for the creation and promotion of C.R. Bard’s Avaulta mesh product was played for the jury on August 6 in a bellwether trial being heard in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia. According to a Drug Watch report on the C.R. Bard multidistrict litigation (MDL) bellwether trial, the filmed deposition lasted for seven hours.

The deposition’s contents are quite revealing, in that they present a lack of awareness, effort, and care on the part of the former president in addressing concerns related to the Avaulta’s design.

The bellwether trial involves the plaintiff, Donna Cisson, who received an implant of C.R. Bard’s Avaulta transvaginal mesh. In filing her transvaginal mesh lawsuit, Cisson claims that the Avaulta mesh is a defective product and is the source of her serious injuries.

Due to mounting reports from women who experienced injuries following surgery to implant transvaginal mesh, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) began a review of data on implantation of transvaginal mesh products to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP). In their review, the FDA discovered that patients most often experienced transvaginal mesh erosion or contraction. In addition, women who alleged to have been injured by transvaginal mesh quite often claimed that the mesh caused severe pelvic pain, bleeding, infection, organ damage, and painful intercourse.
