Georgia C.R. Bard Davol Surgical Mesh

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a recall on Bard Davol surgical meshes that were distributed under the C.R. Bard Davol brand name but later discovered to be counterfeit mesh.  The Bard/Davol mesh is typically used for hernia surgery repair by covering the weakened or torn tissue in the body and closed into the body; thus, the use of a counterfeit mesh could cause serious post-operative damages to patients.  The counterfeit hernia mesh was distributed by RAM Medical Inc. and then redistributed to hospitals and other medical providers through Medline Industries, Amerimed Corporation, Henry Schein Inc., Marathon Medical Corporation, MMS-A Medical Supply Company, and Q-Med Corporation.  According to the FDA, the counterfeit product was distributed between October 2008 and October 2009.  If you had surgery that involved use of the counterfeit Bard Davol mesh, you could have a claim for personal injury, as the mesh was not sterile and could lead to infection and may have an increased likelihood of unraveling in the body.  Please call the Law Offices of Betty Nguyen Davis at 404-593-2620 for more information on the counterfeit Bard Davol mesh product.
