Hernia Mesh Implants Linked to Dangerous Side Effects
Hernia mesh is an alternative to stitches for reducing the recurrence of hernia. The mesh can also encourage new tissue growth, which eventually integrates the mesh into the surrounding area. There are several different types of hernia mesh products that have been recalled due to causing numerous adverse reactions. Three of the hernia mesh models are Atrium C-Qur, Bard Ventralex ST and Ethicon Physiomesh. These are all coated mesh products (meaning they were coated with different substances) and the coatings have contributed to infections, mesh migration or other complications.
Hernia mesh has been linked to:
- Product failure
- Abdominal pain
- Organ perforation
- Slow wound/no wound closure
- Bowel obstruction
- Revision surgery
- And more
Hernia mesh is a medical product that was approved by the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to help provide support to weakened or damaged tissue in patients undergoing surgical procedures. Most commonly, hernia mesh is used in patients undergoing surgery to repair a hernia, but they can also be used during chest wall reconstruction surgery.
Many patients across the U.S. have received hernia mesh during hernia or chest wall reconstruction surgery that could fail.
If you or a loved are experiencing pain and discomfort, or required a revision surgery from defective hernia mesh, you may have a claim to compensation.
