The following is based on a review of medical records and the attorney's legal claim provided to davol by the patient's attorney: on (b)(6) 2001 - the patient was diagnosed with vaginal vault prolapse, cystourethrocele and rectocele. The patient underwent an abdominal sacrocolpopexy with a "marlex" mesh placement which was cut into 2 pieces and sewn together during implant, paravaginal repair, burch urethropexy, right salpingo-oophorectomy, rectocele repair, suprapubic cystoscopy and suprapubic catheter placement. On (b)(6) 2003 - the patient was diagnosed with a vaginal vault prolapse, rectocele, perineal descent and increased genital hiatus. The patient underwent a revision procedure of the alleged "marlex" mesh and implant of a non-bard davol graft. Per the operative report details "a few fibers of previously placed sacrocolpopexy mesh (alleged davol flat) were attached. However, the rest of the attachment along the top of the vagina had torn away and there was complete collapse of the vault. " the operative details further state "this was a prolene mesh (alleged davol flat) that was folded on itself and the posterior leaf extended down 7 cm from the top and the anterior leaf about 4 cm. These were now sutured in with several prolene sutures making firm attachment both anteriorly and posteriorly. The folded mesh was then cut to a 2 cm strip and this was sutured onto the existing mesh which was still attached to the sacrum quite firmly. The attachment was made to the medial aspect of the mesh with several prolene sutures. " on (b)(6) 2006 - the patient underwent a laparoscopic total gastroesophageal fundoplication. There was no mention of any visualization or involvement of the bard flat mesh. On (b)(6) 2007 - the patient contacted the surgeon with complaints of a lot of vaginal and rectal pain, pressure and cramping. The patient reported having the difficulty sitting, standing or laying down. Patient stated the pain started after using post hole digger for fence posts.

On (b)(6) 2014 - the patient had an md office visit with complaints of vaginal pain for one month with difficulty urinating. The patient stated she feels like something is blocked. Per exam notes, "suture palpable eroding at apex, brown mucosa in vagina. " patient was prescribed vaginal hormone cream to treat the eroded suture.
