Return of the Hernia
Implantable fabric options revolutionized hernia surgery and are being manufactured by multiple companies. Your surgeon can choose to repair a hernia by using surgery to bridge the opening without creating any tension. The benefits come with some risks of complications. Hernia recurrence is the most common of operations, including those in which a mesh device is used. The causes are improper surgical technique, shrinkage of the device, and movement or migration. Second and subsequent hernia operations at the same site are more challenging and prone to failure than first attempts.
Are you suffering?
Did you know that each year, surgeons perform about one million hernia repairs? Surgeons consider it the “gold standard” of care and when done properly, it is successful. Some of these surgeries are complicated with the following symptoms that can potentially lead to further surgeries. This is largely associated with recalled products that are no longer on the market.
- Hernia recurrence
- Autoimmune reactions
- Migration in the body causing organ or tissue damage
- Adhesions to the intestines
- Bowel perforation
Documents that are coming to light conclude that patients of this surgery have had to have a second or third surgery to remove the product. Hernia Mesh lawsuits claim that manufacturers already knew of the potential risks AND never adequately warned patients or doctors of the potential problems. Some argue that companies were aware of problems and continued to make or sell faulty devices.

Mesh Hernia lawsuits accuse device makers of several counts of negligence, including:
- Manufacturing a defective product
- Failing to adequately test
- Failing to warn the public about the risks
- Intentionally, knowingly and recklessly concealing information about the defective product
- Intentionally misrepresenting the quality and safety
- Negligently designing and marketing unsafe products
In 2016, the FDA analyzed their reports that concerned Hernia complications and what the side effects were. The FDA found recalled surgical devices have been responsible for some of the most serious complications. According to their website, “Many complications related to hernia repair with surgical mesh that have been reported to the FDA have been associated with recalled mesh products that are no longer on the market. Pain, infection, recurrence, adhesion, obstruction, and perforation are the most common complications associated with recalls. In the FDA’s analysis of medical adverse event reports to the FDA, recalled products were the main cause of bowel perforation and obstruction complications.” More and more people are speaking up and the awareness is spreading about the malpractices from some of these procedures and defective products.
