The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have got thousands of health reports that are associated with the hernia mesh complications. It prompted them to initiate device recalls for the mesh manufacturers marketing and branding these defective devices. Some of the brands voluntarily recalled their products.
A hernia occurs when an internal organ or other body part bulges through the damaged wall of muscle or tissue which normally contains it. Hernias can occur in different parts of the body and are described in a variety of ways, including inguinal, umbilical, hiatal, femoral and incisional. The surgical mesh used to repair hernias comes in different forms of sheets, patches and plugs and these meshes are used to provide additional support to weakened or damaged tissue. Abdominal hernia pain occurs when these meshes are not properly implanted and gives rise to various health issues.
The most general symptom of a defective hernia mesh is severe pain and discomfort. These symptoms may be linked with harsh skin rashes and usually occurs near the implant site and can also lead to pain in stomach, abdomen, leg, groin, or testicle depending on the type of hernia. Chronic yeast infections are the most obvious identifiable complications related with defective hernia mesh. These infections leads to higher risks of sepsis and seroma. Accumulation of fluid may reason secretions and eventually lead to incurable infection. Blockage developing in the large or small intestine is a very serious issue and causes difficulty with defecating and even urinating. If the conditions become severe, it might need a corrective procedure and removal of the mesh.
Some of the lawsuit allegations against the hernia mesh device makers include:
- failing to adequately research the hernia mesh
- failure to quickly issue a hernia mesh recall after health issues were discovered
- failure to warn about the risks of hernia mesh injury
- failure to correctly investigate reports of problems after the mesh was introduced.
