Representing Victims Harmed by Hernia Mesh Complications

There are a variety of hernia mesh products available, though surgeons usually use polypropylene, which is a sterile and woven synthetic plastic-like material. The mesh is applied in the form of a patch, which is placed under or over the weakened area, or inserted as plug. Unfortunately, this treatment has resulted in a plethora of complications, harming many patients.

What is a Hernia?

Hernias commonly occur in the abdomen, though they can also appear in the upper thigh, belly button, and groin. It occurs when an organ pushes through an opening in the muscle or tissue that holds it in place. While this condition is not immediately life threatening, it will not go away on its own and requires treatment.

Causes of Hernia Mesh Complications

The answer to this depends on the type of hernia mesh product. However, many hernia mesh products contain polypropylene, which is also used in pelvic mesh and bladder slings. Despite a material data safety sheet that explicitly warns against the use of polypropylene in permanent body implantations, manufacturers continue to use it as such. As such, the material has a tendency to erode within a patient’s body, causing serious complications. Mesh erosion can require many additional surgeries, hospitalization, systemic infections, and more. There have even been instances of patients’ teeth rotting out.

Common Hernia Mesh Complications

A wide range of injuries can occur due to hernia mesh complications, some of which can have lifelong impacts.

  • Infections, including sepsis, requiring the surgical removal of the infected hernia mesh
  • Adhesions form to connect the bowel to the hernia mesh, causing bowel obstruction
  • Abdominal pain, which may be a sign of adhesions, infection, or nerve damage
  • Leg, groin, and testicular pain, which can be debilitating
  • Painful sexual intercourse
  • Testicle removal might be necessary if the mesh erodes far into the spermatic cord
  • Diarrhea is an early sign of mesh attaching to the bowel
  • Constipation may indicate a bowel obstruction
  • Nausea is a sign of adhesions on the bowel or stomach
  • Fever might indicate an infection
  • Severe headaches are another common sign of infection
  • Autoimmune disorders, which may also result in joint aches and pain

Hernia Mesh Products Under Investigation

There are several hernia mesh products that are currently on the market, many of which are mounting a large sum of complaints. Here is a list of hernia mesh products that are either being investigated or facing lawsuits:

Reach Out to a Skilled Legal Team

If you have suffered from complications from a hernia mesh product, consult with a medical professional and seek legal counsel. You might have a lawsuit on your hands and receiving compensation can help relieve the burden of medical bills associated with any treatment you may require to recover from any injuries caused by the hernia mesh. The sooner you contact a hernia mesh attorney, the faster you can begin to develop your claim and hold those responsible for the damages you have suffered, and the possible future damages that might arise from having used this dangerous medical device.

At the Lowe Law Group, we do not believe you should be responsible for the medical bills incurred as a result of a manufacturer’s product. We will fight to insure that you receive the compensation you deserve either in an individual lawsuit or mass tort claim.
