C. R. Bard, Inc (sometimes referred to merely as Bard) is medical equipment company founded in 1907 by Charles R. Bard and has headquarters in New Jersey. However, Bard manufactures and markets their various products worldwide and employees around 11,000 people. Bard’s first claim to acclaim was the development and introduction of the Foley catheter. Now, the company provides surgical devices for both genders, and is one of the leading manufacturers of bladder slings for both pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. Unfortunately, the FDA has recently questioned the safety of C. R. Bard bladder sling products as well as all other brands of bladder slings. Lawsuit claims have been filed in response to injury claims stemming from bladder sling treatment. At this time, C. R. Bard has the following bladder sling treatment options:
- Avaulta Solo Synthetic Support System
- Avaulta Solo Support System
- Avaulta Plus BioSynthetic Support System
- BioSynthetic Support System
- CollaMend Implant
- Pelvitex Polypylene Mesh
- Pelvitex Polypropylene Mesh
- Faslata Allograft
- PelviSoft Biomesh
- Pelvicol Tissue
- UGYTEX Dual Knit Mesh
Although the use of these C. R. Bard bladder sling devices aims to correct the ailments of pelvic organ prolapse and/or stress urinary incontinence, their use can result in serious physical harm. If you have been injured by one of these or another mesh device, you may want to consider a C. R. Bard Bladder Sling Lawsuit.
C. R. Bard Bladder Sling Complications
A C. R. Bard bladder sling attempts to provide additional support for pelvic tissue that has weakened over time. However, sometimes the polypropylene mesh comprising the sling can hurt the patient and result in serious physical complications. Bladder sling erosion can occur when the mesh pushes through the vaginal walls. Injury can also occur when the mesh shrinks or contracts. C. R. Bard bladder sling complications can result in pain, bleeding, infection, organ perforation, neuromuscular and even emotional damages to those they affect. Hospitalization and/or additional surgeries may be necessary to treat the issues.
