If you or your loved one is experiencing chronic intense pain, infection, or other repercussions from defective mesh usage, don’t wait! You could be entitled to compensation.
WHAT IS HERNIA MESH?
According the to FDA, there are nearly one million hernia repairs made each year. While hernias can be treated without the use of mesh, surgical mesh has become increasingly popular as a means of treatment. This medical implant is used to repair/reinforce the damaged muscle or tissue causing the hernia. These implants are intended to be permanent.
Mesh can help add support to the weakened or damaged tissue. Surgeons also often rely on surgical mesh to help reduce high recurrence rates of hernias. So much so that nearly 90% of hernia repairs use hernia mesh.
WHAT WENT WRONG
In the 2000’s patient complaints of complications and injury related to mesh used for hernia repair began to increase. This caused concern over the safety of this product and whether or not the products were being appropriately tested by manufacturers.
Since then, the FDA has published many adverse event reports against these mesh implants, such as C-QUR and Ethicon’s Physiomesh. These reports documented events where the mesh was broken into pieces, had a hole in the center, ruptured after surgery, and presented bowel obstruction among other problematic events. In some of these reports, the surgeons even stated that the surgical mesh was a failure.
There are many different types of mesh in use for hernia treatment today made by several manufacturers including:
- Ethicon (Johnson & Johnson)
- Atrium (Maquet, Getinge Group)
- Covidien (Medtronic)
- C.R. Bard (Davol)
The most dangerous mesh being used is composite mesh, which has a polypropylene coating.
SYMPTOMS OF COMPLICATIONS
How do you know if you’ve been impacted by defective mesh? If you’ve had hernia surgery be mindful of any symptoms related to malfunctioning mesh such as:
- Severe pain
- Constipation or trouble urinating
- Irritable bowel
If you experience any of these symptoms after a hernia surgery, or suspect that something is not right, talk to your doctor.
Surgical procedures that used defective hernia mesh can result in many severe, painful complications. Common defective mesh injuries used for hernias include:
- Chronic pain
- Bowel perforations
- Bowel obstruction
- Organ perforation
- Mesh embedded in abdomen wall
- Mesh migration or movement
- Autoimmune disorders
Suffering from any of these complications after a hernia surgery could indicate that you are eligible for compensation for a defective hernia mesh surgery
