Problems Caused by Hernia Mesh
A hernia occurs when an internal organ pushes through the muscle or tissue holding it in place. In hernia surgery, physicians may use pelvic mesh that is made with polypropylene, which is a flexible and thin material. This hernia mesh supports surrounding musculature and tissues that are too weak or damaged to be held together by sutures alone.
It has been discovered, however, that polypropylene triggers an immune response in some people that can cause more health issues than it was supposed to solve. Contact a hernia mesh lawyer today if you’re experiencing any of the following:
- The need for revision surgeries to remove hernia mesh
- Chronic pain
- Bowel perforation
- Punctured or eroded blood vessels
- Intestinal blockage
- Serious infection
- Adhesion of mesh to tissues
- Organ damage
- Recurring or new hernias
- Mesh shrinkage or migration
- Fluid build-up under the skin (seroma)
Join the Effort to Hold Hernia Mesh Manufacturers Accountable
Manufacturers of hernia mesh implants allegedly failed to warn patients about these known side effects and risks, even though it was clear that the devices had a design defect. Many hernia mesh products have been recalled.
However, some of these defective hernia mesh brands (which can be identified by product number) remain on the market and are actively being used by surgeons. The hernia mesh products that are currently the subject of most lawsuits are from the following manufacturers:
- C.R. Bard and subsidiary Davol
- Ethicon (Johnson & Johnson)
- Atrium, which is a subsidiary of Getinge Group and is associated with Maquet
- W.L. Gore & Associates
AC-QUR manufactured by Atrium and Physiomesh made by Ethicon (Johnson and Johnson) are two hernia mesh products that are known to have caused serious injury. If your doctor used mesh made by any of these manufacturers, among others, and you’re now hurt, contact a lawyer about your case.
