Officials discovered several types of hernia mesh implants can buckle and fail inside of the body, causing severe injuries. Due to dangerously defective hernia mesh designs, patients have experienced painful complications including intense stomach pain, infections, organ erosion, and the need for another surgery.

If you or a loved one suffers from injuries caused by a defective hernia mesh implant, contact the hernia mesh injury lawyers at AVA Law Group for your free consultation and case evaluation. Hernia mesh manufacturers created and sold dangerously defective hernia mesh products, and their negligence may entitle you to compensation to help you heal and recover from your injuries.

What’s a Hernia Mesh Implant?

Hernia repair surgeries are one of the most common surgeries in the United States, with millions of procedures every year. During hernia repair surgery, a surgeon may use surgical mesh to provide added support to weak or damaged tissue. This mesh, a hernia mesh implant, is used to fix hernias and lower the rate of hernia recurrence.

Common types of hernia repair include:

  • Abdominal or ventral wall (ventral hernia)
  • Around an abdominal incision or scar (incisional hernia)
  • Inner groin (inguinal hernia)
  • Upper thigh or outer groin (femoral hernia)
  • Belly button (umbilical hernia)
  • Abdomen (hiatal hernia)

What Went Wrong?

Reports reveal some hernia mesh implant manufacturers skirted safety standards for the sake of saving a few pennies. Many mesh implant products contain polypropylene, a cheap type of plastic used in mesh products like hernia mesh implants.

However, studies found polypropylene is harmful to use in patients, as it can lead to painful complications and injuries. Researchers discovered polypropylene contracts and degrades over time when it directly comes into contact with patients' bowels, leading to hernia mesh failure. When a mesh fails, the broken mesh and exposed hernia can cause severe injuries in patients, some of them requiring the need for painful mesh removal surgeries.

Complications and Injuries

Hernia mesh injuries and complications vary based on where the mesh was placed during your surgery. These complications can range anywhere from mild to severe to life threatening.

Observed injuries and complications associated with hernia mesh failure include:

  • Meshoma
  • Joint aches and pains
  • Pain with sex
  • Bowel obstruction
  • Intense headaches
  • Fistula
  • Infection and sepsis
  • Rashes
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Renal failure

Minimal Product Testing

Not only did hernia mesh manufacturers use dangerous materials, but many conducted minimal research on their hernia mesh products before introducing them to the market. By using the FDA's 510(k) approval, manufacturers could sell hernia mesh products that were "substantially equivalent" to previously approved mesh products. Because of this, manufactures are not required to do any clinical testing. Due to manufacturers' negligence to test the true safety of their products, thousands of defective hernia meshes were implanted in patients' bodies.
