C.R. Bard and Davol will have to defend yet another product liability lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court, Western District of Missouri by a Missouri woman who alleges she faced adverse reactions due to the Ventralex ST hernia patch. The woman had to undergo a revision surgery after the failure of the device which was implanted in 2013, which would further require multiple surgeries for correction.
Another Ventralex Hernia Patch lawsuit claiming negligence, design defect, manufacturing defect, failure to warn, and breach of warranty and violation of consumer protection laws was filed by a man from California, and his wife claimed loss of consortium in New Jersey federal court. The man suffered internal injuries after the mesh entangled in his body and states the mesh requires a surgical removal, but cannot be removed.
