A West Virginia jury ordered C.R. Bard Inc., the manufacturer of the Avaulta transvaginal mesh implant, to pay $2 million to a woman who suffered severe injuries from the device. This is the second lawsuit to be tried against a manufacturer of transvaginal mesh devices. In February 2013, a New Jersey jury awarded a woman $3.35 million for her injuries associated with Gynecare Prolift transvaginal mesh, manufactured by Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Ethicon.
Thousands of women have filed lawsuits against makers of vaginal mesh implants and reported complications and injury from the use of these devices. Injuries range from chronic pain, infections, and bleeding to perforated organs and erosion of the mesh implant.
