Manufacturer Narrative

Currently, it is unknown to what extent if any the device may have caused or contributed to the reported event. The medical records indicated that the discharge experienced by the patient could be related to the colpopexy mesh at the top of the cervix. A transvaginal ultrasound however was performed which indicated that "the suture at the end of the vaginal cuff appears to be calcified. " due to this information it is unclear whether the cause of the patient's symptom was related to a suture vs. The soft mesh implant and/or the non-bard davol sling. With the current information available, no definitive conclusion can be made as to the extent that the device may have caused or contributed to the patient's post op complications. 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.
