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.
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.
If you or a loved one has undergone a surgical procedure to treat hernia complications for any of these matters and have suffered complications as a result of a hernia mesh product, you may be entitled to legal compensation from the manufacturers of these defective products.
