When pelvic tissue weakens with age or as the result of pregnancy, a condition called pelvic organ prolapse (POP) can occur. Some women who have POP do not display any symptoms, but other women can experience pain or urinary incontinence as the result of their organs sinking lower than their normal positions. Medical technology company C. R. Bard offers several products for the surgical treatment of pelvic organ prolapse, one of which is the Avaulta Plus Support System which uses mesh to reinforce weak pelvic tissue. Avaulta Plus uses polypropylene mesh; however, the use of transvaginal mesh for the treatment of POP has been linked to injuries in many patients. The severity of these Avaulta Plus Injuries has resulted in the filing of C. R. Bard Avaulta Plus Lawsuit Claims, as well as many lawsuits filed against the manufactures of many other mesh devices.
Transvaginal mesh erosion occurs when the Avaulta Plus Support System painful expels itself through the walls of a patient’s vagina. This experience is excruciatingly painful and is, unfortunately, one of the most frequently reported transvaginal mesh injuries. C.R. Bard Avaulta Plus erosion is also called mesh protrusion, mesh extrusion, and mesh exposure. Treatment of this transvaginal mesh injury requires multiple surgeries. Sometimes, even following numerous surgical procedures the condition can never fully be fixed.
Mesh erosion is only one of several various injuries that can follow transvaginal mesh treatment for pelvic organ prolapse with C. R. Bard Avaulta Plus Support System. In addition, the following medical complications have been cited in association with mesh POP treatment:
Due to the expensive medical treatment required by many of these Avaulta plus complications, many women decide to pursue litigation against the company that manufactures and markets the product that injured them.
