TVM Lawsuits: Devices Caused Organ Damage, Other Injuries
More than 3,000 women who filed lawsuits against C.R. Bard, Inc., a medical technology company, will receive about $67,000 each in compensation for alleged injuries they incurred as a result of transvaginal mesh inserts. Bloomberg Business reports that the medical device maker is attempting to resolve about one-fifth of the lawsuits they currently face from women who allege the inserts caused them severe pain and damaged their organs.
Intended to help treat incontinence and strengthen a woman’s pelvic muscles, transvaginal mesh inserts have faced scrutiny for some time. Some of the women affected, claim that they needed multiple removal surgeries after a mesh device placement because the inserts contained materials dangerous to the human body as well as causing a number of other complications. Many of the lawsuits also focus on the device’s alleged improper and inadequate design. Court filings reveal the company considers mesh inserts effective and safe for use, the website reported.
