Surgical Mesh Injury Case

Defective Surgical Mesh Injury Case Verdict Affirmed by U.S. Court of Appeals

As reported by The Legal Examiner, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit upheld the first injury trial jury verdict against transvaginal surgical mesh manufacturer C.R. Bard, a jury award of $2 million in a decision that could affect many thousands of American women allegedly harmed by this medical device known variously as transvaginal mesh (TVM), pelvic mesh, or bladder sling mesh.

Transvaginal mesh was marketed by medical manufacturers as a product that could surpass old treatment methods for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) in terms of efficacy and affordability. However, many patients have experienced symptoms including mesh erosion, urinary problems, such as incontinence, infection, pain, and vaginal scarring.

There are currently about 70,000 cases filed against TVM manufacturers and the affirmation by the Court of Appeals is viewed as a positive development for these and other pending cases.
