This month, a Bard mesh recall has been initiated, and the company has decided to no longer produce and distribute their mesh devices.
The mesh products made by Bard – C.R. Bard (Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD)) – are for treating POP (pelvic organ prolapse) and SUI (stress urinary incontinence). The recall is voluntary, and the advice so far is that the devices don’t need to be removed. However, anyone who suffers with complications should seek advice immediately.
The recall has been launched with immediate effect, according to the company’s written publications.
