Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2326; In Re: Coloplast Corp., Pelvic Support Systems Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2387; and In Re Cook Medical, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2440.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reported on July 13, 2011, that the most common complications associated with transvaginal mesh may include:
- Mesh erosion through the vagina (also called exposure, extrusion, or protrusion)
- Pain during sexual intercourse (dyspareunia)
- Organ perforation
- Urinary problems
The FDA also stated that complications linked to transvaginal mesh implants are “not rare” and warned that use of such devices may actually be more harmful compared to alternative methods for treating pelvic organ prolapse (POP).
The first two bellwether trials in the C.R. Bard MDL ended in favor of the Plaintiffs, according to court documents. In the second bellwether, the parties agreed to settle for an undisclosed amount, according to court documents. The trial began, and was settled on, the same date, Aug. 21, 2013, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia, Charleston Division (Queen v. C.R. Bard Inc., Case No. 2:11-cv-00012).
That settlement occurred about one week after another federal jury awarded a total of $2 million in damages to a Georgia woman, having found that C.R. Bard Inc. had failed to warn of the potential dangers associated with its Avaulta-branded vaginal mesh device, according to court documents. On Thursday, Aug. 15, 2013, the jurors awarded the woman $250,000 in compensatory damages and $1.75 million in punitive damages. The trial had begun on July 29, in the U.S
