Manufacturer Allegedly Failed to Perform Adequate Tests and Research
According to a lawsuit filed in October 2016, C.R. Bard, the manufacturer of the Ventralex Hernia Patch, knew of the unreasonable harm the surgical patches could pose when used to repair a hernia. The lawsuit further alleges that Bard failed to properly test and research the device in order to determine and evaluate the risks associated with the patches.
Additionally, the lawsuit claims scientific evidence demonstrates that the mesh is incompatible with human tissue and may cause a negative immune response in patients who are implanted with the device. As a result of having the device implanted, the plaintiff claims to have experienced significant mental and physical pain and suffering, and will likely need additional medical treatment.
