Santa Clara, CA: The Ventralex Hernia Patch made by C.R. Bard may be defectively designed, making it be incompatible with human tissue causing health complications in people who have is surgically implanted.
According to allegations made in at least one dangerous medical devices lawsuit, Bard failed to properly test and research the risks associated with the Ventralex hernia patch before making it available to the medical community. One plaintiff claims to have suffered a negative immune response following surgery in which the Ventralex path was implanted.
Allegations also claim that Bard knew or should have known that its Ventralex patch is harmful, but continued to market the hernia repair mesh as safe and effective. According to one complaint, “The Product was made of materials which are biologically incompatible with human tissue and react negatively and sometimes dangerously with a large number of those on whom it is used.” It continues: “The scientific evidence Defendant knew or should have known of demonstrates that the mesh is incompatible with human tissue and often causes a negative immune response in patients implanted with the Product, including Plaintiff.”
The plaintiffs in these lawsuits allege negligence, design defect, manufacturing defect, failure to warn, and breach of warranty by Bard.
