Possible Bard Avaulta Mesh Side Effects

Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when the tissues that hold the pelvic organs in place become weak or stretched, often following childbirth or surgery. When POP occurs, the pelvic organs prolapse, or bulge, into the vagina and sometimes past the vaginal opening. Thirty to fifty percent of women may experience POP in their lifetime, with two percent developing symptoms. Stress urinary incontinence is a leakage of urine during moments of physical activity, including sneezing, coughing, laughing or exercising. Despite the fact that surgical mesh devices like Bard Avaulta mesh were designed to effectively treat women suffering from these conditions, these products may be associated with severe side effects of their own, including:

  • Surgical mesh infection
  • Surgical mesh erosion
  • Recurrence of prolapse or incontinence
  • Urinary problems
  • Injury to nearby organs
  • Bladder, bowel and blood vessel perforations
  • Pain during sexual intercourse

Bard Avaulta Mesh FDA Warnings

In 2008, the FDA issued a public health advisory indicating that, over the previous three years, the FDA had received over 1,000 reports from nine surgical mesh manufacturers of complications that were associated with surgical mesh devices, like Bard Avaulta mesh, used to repair POP and SUI. According to the FDA, the most frequent complications included erosion of the surgical mesh, pain, infection, urinary problems, and recurrence of incontinence and/or prolapse. There were also reports of bowel, bladder and blood vessel perforation during insertion. Based on an updated analysis of adverse events associated with surgical mesh, the FDA has identified surgical mesh for transvaginal repair of POP as an area of continuing concern. The FDA issued an update in July 2011, to inform patients and physicians that the serious complications associated with surgical mesh products like Bard Avaulta are not rare. Furthermore, the FDA reports that it is not clear that transvaginal POP repair with mesh is more effective than traditional non-mesh repair in all patients with POP, and may expose patients to greater risk.
