Complications due to the Hernia Mesh Recall

Trends are appearing and here are some common problems from some plaintiffs.


Perforation

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.

Return of the Hernia

Hernia recurrence is the most common complication of hernia operations. This is caused by improper surgical technique, shrinkage, movement or migration of the device.

Infection

Some hernia infections can be treated with acute antibiotics. Sometimes it requires the removal of the device and other solutions are used for repairing the hernia.

Adhesion

An adhesion is a band of scar tissue that binds two parts of tissue or organs together. Adhesions may appear as thin sheets of tissue similar to plastic wrap or as thick fibrous bands.

Intestinal Complications

Placed inside the abdominal cavity, the device may become stuck to part of the bowel. In some cases, they can kink the intestine and cause a blockage.

Recurring Pain

Moderate to severe pain that persists after hernia surgery, especially if "searing" or "electric" feeling, may be a sign of nerve entrapment. This is caused by either the device or the sutures or staples.
