Hernia Mesh Lawsuits: What You Need To Know

In order to repair and stop the high rate of reoccurrence in hernias, surgeons use hernia mesh to strengthen the hernia repair and reduce this rate. This also gives the patient decreased operative time in most cases, making this a regular go-to procedure.

However, there are certain cases where hernia mesh repair might not be recommended or complications can occur.

Taylor Martino has looked into several cases and wants you to know your options if you feel the product that was supposed to help you has failed. The FDA has approved several hernia mesh products quickly and unjustly.

Here is a breakdown of the Hernia Repair Surgery complications that could occur:

Based on FDA’s analysis of medical device adverse event reports and of peer-reviewed, scientific literature, the most common adverse events for all surgical repair of hernias—with or without mesh—are pain, infection, hernia recurrence, scar-like tissue that sticks tissues together (adhesion), blockage of the large or small intestine (obstruction), bleeding, abnormal connection between organs, vessels, or intestines (fistula), fluid build-up at the surgical site (seroma), and a hole in neighboring tissues or organs (perforation).

The most common adverse events following hernia repair with mesh are pain, infection, hernia recurrence, adhesion, and bowel obstruction. Some other potential adverse events that can occur following hernia repair with mesh are mesh migration and mesh shrinkage (contraction).

Taylor Martino has researched these products and the long list of recalled products to find out many hernia mesh products are recalled but the public is unaware. The FDA is slow to take action against them.

HERNIA MESH MANUFACTURERS AND PRODUCTS

  • Johnson & Johnson (Ethicon): Physiomesh

To determine the manufacturer and type of hernia mesh you have, contact the hospital or physician’s office where your procedure was performed. The name of the mesh, catalog number, lot number and size should be recorded in your medical records.

 

Even if you are sure that your doctor violated the standard of care owed to you, Hernia Mesh cases can be complicated.

You will need to hire medical experts to prove that the doctor in question did indeed act outside of the medical standard of care, and that this deviation was the direct cause of your injury. You will also need to prove that you have suffered damages as a direct result.
