When an organ, intestine or fatty tissue squeezes through a weak spot or hole in muscle tissue, a hernia forms. Hernias can occur as a result of obesity, pregnancy, constipation or even weight lifting. Due to a high incidence of hernias re-opening, surgeons often opt to apply a mesh patch or mesh plug to stabilize muscles and tissues. While mesh patches and plugs are made of different materials (synthetic, permanent or absorbable), complications arise due to their recurrence rate or allergic reactions to fish oil contained in certain mesh coatings. Even so, this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to hernia mesh related injuries.

With allegations stemming from reactions to infections and intestinal and skin injuries, patients need to know their options if they’ve been injured following a hernia mesh procedure.

The personal injury lawyers at the Harman Law Firm work for victims and families that have been negatively harmed due to defective medical devices or procedures. We understand that the physical, financial and emotional anguish you’re experiencing as a result of your injury is difficult to bear. That’s why you’re encouraged to contact us today to discuss your options.

Complications Associated With Hernia Mesh

While hernia mesh materials such as Ethicon Physiomesh have been withdrawn from the market due to high rates of recurrence (re-opening after surgery), Omega-3 based Hernia Mesh implants and Composix Kugel Mesh patches have been linked to injuries and additional surgeries to repair damage from previous mesh procedures. Complications linked to Hernia Mesh are:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Abscesses and infection
  • Additional surgery
  • Adhesion (scarred tissue that sticks together)
  • Allergic reaction
  • Bowel obstruction/perforation
  • Dehiscence
  • Hernia recurrence
  • Intestinal blockage

  • Mesh erosion
  • Mesh contraction (shrinkage)
