Have you had pain from hernia mesh surgery?
Each year, surgeons perform about one million hernia repairs as surgeons consider Mesh Hernia the “gold standard” of care. When done properly, it is very 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 being used in the surgery.
- 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 hernia surgery have had to have a second or third surgery to remove the device. 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 products.
#1: Return of the Hernia
Hernia recurrence is the most common complication of all hernia operations. The causes of this are; improper surgical technique, shrinkage, and movement or migration of the device. Second and subsequent hernia operations at the same site are more challenging and prone to failure than first attempts. If you think you have used a recalled or faulty hernia device, contact us today to find out if the materials used in your surgery have been issued a recall.
People are finally speaking up!
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 products
- Intentionally misrepresenting the quality and safety
- Negligently designing and marketing unsafe products
In 2016, the FDA recalled surgical devices that 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." More and more people are speaking up and the awareness is spreading about the malpractices from some of these procedures and defective hernia products. See some of the lawsuits that relate to the recalls.
