The trial of Donna Cisson, a California woman who was implanted with the Avaulta transvaginal mesh, has begun. Cisson claims the device caused extensive pain, bleeding, and bladder spasms. She underwent two additional surgeries in order to correct the issues. Transvaginal mesh devices are often used to treat urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse, but they have come under fire due to a number of health complications. Polypropylene resin, the material used in these devices, has been known to cause serious problems when permanently implanted in the body, and C.R. Bard purchased this resin from a third party and continued to use it in Avaulta Plus.

Bard has been found liable for producing products that were ill-fit for human use. Bard’s Avaulta mesh was designed to act like a sling to hold tissues and organs in place. But the product has been linked to a wide variety of complications, including infections and internal bleeding. Even worse, some patients have suffered permanent internal organ injury as a result of the transvaginal mesh.
