Understanding the Hernia Mesh Litigation

Hernia mesh surgery, a common procedure used to repair hernias, has become a subject of significant litigation. Many patients have reported complications ranging from chronic pain to organ perforation following hernia mesh implantation. As a result, a wave of lawsuits have emerged against hernia mesh manufacturers alleging product defects and the failure to warn the public about potential risks.

Two Types of Hernia Mesh Implants

Synthetic mesh typically consists of polyester or polypropylene materials which are permanent, long-acting resorbable and tissue-separating constructs.

Composite meshes are produced using more than one type of material. They may be constructed with a synthetic coating over the biologic mesh. This type is made from donated skin from humans or pigs.

Common Issues Reported with Hernia Mesh include:

Hernia recurrence, severe abdominal pain, infection, bowel obstruction, adhesions/scar-like tissue, perforation and or migration due to design defects. Some people were even forced to have revision surgeries and suffered other life-threatening injuries. Unfortunately, many manufacturers failed to warn consumers about their products’ risks. As a result, one may be compensated for the payment of medical bills, pain & suffering, emotional distress, lost income and or the death of a loved one.

If you or someone you know is experiencing issues with a hernia mesh implant between the years 2011 to the present, which also required a revision (a second procedure to remove it), The Law Offices of Evan M Ostfeld may be able to obtain a significant financial recovery.
