Complications from Hernia Mesh
A hernia occurs when an organ, intestine or fatty tissue squeezes through a hole or weak spot in a muscle or connective tissue. As a result of a hernia you might have abdominal pain, bulging of the skin, nausea and vomiting. More than 1 million times each year in the U.S., surgeons use hernia mesh to support the weakened or damaged tissue and prevent recurrence. Hernia mesh is made of animal tissue or synthetic materials and is manufactured in patches, plugs or larger sheets of mesh.
IMPORTANT – these materials are now known to have a high rate of failure and are linked to infections, bowel obstruction, scar tissue and chronic pain. If you’ve experienced any of these problems following your surgery – even years later – you may be able to file a legal claim against one of the manufacturers of hernia mesh. Companies that produce the hernia mesh are a Johnson & Johnson subsidiary, Ethicon, Inc., as well as Atrium Medical Corporation and C.R. Bard. Atrium manufacturers the C-Qur Hernia Mesh.
Last year, a mesh product recall occurred when Ethicon voluntarily withdrew its Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh after studies found the device to cause a high rate of complications compared to others.
