Ventrio ST Mesh Lawsuit Filed Over Hernia Patch Failure

Davol and C.R. Bard face another product liability lawsuit over a hernia patch failure that was allegedly caused by design defects with the Ventrio ST mesh. 

In a complaint (PDF) in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio on September 21, Tari K. Motsinger indicates that the product created an unreasonable risk of complications following hernia repair.

Motsinger thats that a 4.3 inch by 5.5 inch patch of Bard Ventrio ST mesh was implanted in December 2016, during a ventral hernia repair procedure. However, the mesh became infected, resulting in the development of a fistula. In November 2017, less than a year after being implanted, the mesh was removed during revision surgery.

“Plaintiff continues to experience complications related to the Ventrio ST Mesh. She will likely require additional surgeries to repair the damage from Defendants’ product, the lawsuit states. “Defendants were responsible for the research, design, development, testing, manufacture, production, marketing, promotion, distribution and sale of the Ventrio ST Mesh, including providing the warnings and instructions concerning their product.”

Motsinger’s lawsuit joins a growing number of similar product liability claims filed over the Bard hernia patch failures filed in recent months, each raising similar allegations.

The case will be consolidated with dozens of other complaints brought throughout the federal court system, which have been centralized as part of a federal Bard hernia mesh MDL in the Southern District of Ohio, where one judge is presiding over coordinated discovery and pretrial proceedings.

Similar centralized proceedings have already been established for Ethicon hernia mesh lawsuits and Atrium C-Qur mesh lawsuits, each of which already involve several hundred claims.

As lawyer continue to review and file cases in the coming months and years, it is ultimately expected that close to 10,000 hernia mesh lawsuits may eventually be filed against various different companies by individuals who received polypropylene products.
