Manufacturer Narrative

Based on a review of medical records, the patient experienced infection, pain, adhesions, fistula formation and obstruction. Adhesions and fistula formation are listed as known possible adverse reaction in the instructions-for-use. In regards to infection, the warning section of the instructions-for-use states "if an infection develops, treat the infection aggressively. The prosthesis may not have to be removed. An unresolved infection, however, may require removal of the prosthesis. ¿ a manufacturing review was performed which found no anomalies during the manufacturing process. With the information currently provided, it is unknown if the patient's bard davol mesh may have caused or contributed to the patient's reported events, due to the patient's surgical history of abdominal surgeries prior to implant of the bard mesh and the unknown medical history between implant of the bard mesh in 2006 and the md evaluation in 2011. If additional event and/or evaluation information is obtained, a follow up mdr will be submitted. The information provided by bard represents all of the known information at this time. Despite good faith efforts to obtain additional information, the complainant / reporter was unable or unwilling to provide any further patient, product, or procedural details to bard. Not returned to manufacturer.
