Desara Provides Flexible Performance.
Caldera Medical, Inc.
An Indiana couple has filed a product liability lawsuit over problems with a Caldera Medical Desara vaginal sling , which caused the wife to experience severe complications similar to those that have been linked to several transvaginal mesh products. Durham indicates that she received a Caldera Desara sling on October 15, , and alleges that the she suffered serious bodily injuries, mental and physical pain and suffering, including vaginal pain and painful sexual intercourse, as a result of complications with the sling. According to the lawsuit, the Caldera Medical Desera vaginal sling was defectively designed and the manufacturer failed to adequately warn about the risk of problems following use of the sling during transvaginal surgery. The Desara sling contains material that is not inert, reacting to human tissues and bodily functions in ways that adversely affect a patients health, according to allegations raised in the complaint. Durham also alleges that the mesh harbors infections and can migrate from its original location, becoming embedded in human tissue. Durham is suing the manufacturers for negligence, breach of warranty, manufacturing and design defects, as well as failure to warn. Her husband has brought a claim for loss of consortium, and the couple seeks compensatory damages, as well as punitive damages in the lawsuit. The case joins a growing number of vaginal sling lawsuits that have been filed throughout the United States over problems with similar products made by a number of different companies, including American Medical Systems AMS , C. Bard , Boston Scientific and Ethicon.
