(PRWEB) June 26, 2013
Transvaginal mesh manufacturer CR Bard used a type of plastic unfit for humans in a mesh product despite warnings from the supplier, according to a June 26 Bloomberg report based on court records.* The Rottenstein Law Group LLP, which represents women filing vaginal mesh claims, is disappointed by the news, noting the studies and reports that already show some serious alleged side effects and risks associated with Bard’s vaginal mesh products such as the Avaulta.
Bard’s Davol division used a type of resin-based plastic made by Chevron Phillips to make hernia-repair mesh, in spite of Chevron’s warning that it shouldn’t be permanently implanted in patients, according to Bloomberg, which further reported on emails from between 2004 and 2007 that indicated executives allegedly instructed employees to keep secret the use of the plastic.
“The evidence against the safety and efficacy of Bard’s mesh products is mounting,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group LLP. “All of this should be useful for plaintiffs at trial. If these reports are true, then the company needs to be held accountable.”
Plaintiffs in the five federal case consolidations are seeking compensation for transvaginal mesh injuries, alleging that their transvaginal mesh implants have caused them to suffer serious side effects, including erosion, bleeding, pain and infection, according to court documents for MDLs 2187, 2325, 2326, 2327 and 2387, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia.
