Baron and Budd is Encouraged by the First Federal Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit Verdict
Date:9/11/2013

LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) September 11, 2013

Baron and Budd is encouraged by the jury decision in the first transvaginal mesh lawsuit that awarded $2 million to a woman, Donna Cisson, who claimed that the manufacturer, C.R. Bard Inc., did not sufficiently warn her about defects in the product that in turn caused her bleeding and significant pain. Donna Cisson's case is the first bellwether trial of around 20,000 lawsuits consolidated into a Multi-District Litigation in Charleston, West Virginia. (In re: C.R. Bard, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2187)

Donna Cisson claims that she had to undergo two revision surgeries to remove the transvaginal mesh device. Finding that Bard did not adequately warn patients about the design defect in its product, the jury awarded $250 million in compensatory damages and $1.75 million in punitive damages.

C.R. Bard Inc.'s transvaginal mesh device, part of its line of Avualta products, was used to treat pelvic organ prolapse, a condition that may involve urinary incontinence or pain. Inserted surgically, the transvaginal mesh device is alleged to have defects including a high risk for infection, erosion and pain. If patients need to remove the device to remedy the pain, they may find that surgeons have a difficult time fully removing the device. Often, multiple costly and painful revision surgeries are needed. (http://www.fda.gov/MedicalDevices/Safety/AlertsandNotices/PublicHealthNotifications/ucm061976.htm)

"Although we were not involved with Donna Cisson's transvaginal mesh lawsuit, we are encouraged by the jury's decision,” said Russell Budd of Baron and Budd. "Our goal is to help these woman find some justice. Unfortunately, doctors and patients were not aware of the defects involved with the transvaginal mesh device or the complications surgeons would have removing the device later."
