On April 10th, 2012 an Illinois woman, Jill L. Dewey, filed a lawsuit in West Virginia Southern District Court (case no. 2:2012cv01025) alleging she suffered a multitude of medical problems as a result of a transvaginal mesh surgery to treat a pelvic organ prolapse (POP). Plaintiff was surgically implanted in August 2005 at the Mayo Clinic with the Pelvitex polypropylene vaginal mesh system to treat her organ prolapse. According to the lawsuit, she started having problems with the Surgical Mesh shortly after the surgery and she claims that it caused a significant physical and mental pain, disability and permanent deformity. Plaintiff is suing Bard Healthcare, a division of C.R. Bard, Inc., et al for nearly $10 million in damages.
Transvaginal surgical mesh is used to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI). Several lawsuits against C.R.Bard, the manufacturer of Bard Avaulta surgical mesh, were consolidated in October 2010 as part of an MDL (No.2187) in the US District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia.
