Bard Ventralex Lawsuit. Many victims who were implanted by surgeons with Ventralex Hernia mesh medical devices are now pursuing mesh lawsuits against Bard and Bard’s subsidiary Davol.

Bard is facing hernia mesh lawsuits as a result of its allegedly defective hernia mesh patch medical device, Ventralex.

According to Bard Davol Inc.’s website “The Ventralex™ Hernia Patch is a self-expanding polypropylene and ePTFE patch that allows for an intraabdominal, tension-free repair. This technique is designed to eliminate the lateral dissection typically required for preperitoneal placement, which may help minimize post op pain. Deep placement of the prosthetic also allows for a strong repair and less chance of recurrence.”  Davol company propogandaC.R.

“Bard has agreed to settle almost 3,000 vaginal mesh lawsuits filed against the medical device manufacturer by women who claim the transvaginal mesh systems caused them to suffer perforation in their pelvic floor as well as sustaining other damages to the tissue surrounding the mesh. Although one woman won a $2 million vaginal mesh verdict in 2014, it is expected that the majority of plaintiffs represented in these transvaginal mesh lawsuits will take the proposed Bard settlements rather than continue with further litigation.” Top Class actions
