Thousands of People Have Had Issues with Hernia Mesh Implants
Even after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a string of warnings and recalled similar products, device manufacturers continued to produce and market surgical mesh implants for use during hernia repair. As the first round of victims took their cases to court, additional patients underwent hernia repair with mesh implants.
Many of these patients have since suffered from painful complications and required revision surgery. Some of the most common issues with surgical mesh implants include:
- Chronic and severe pain near the implant site
- Increased risk of abdominal infection
- Adhesion to the bowel wall
- Bowel perforation or obstruction
- Dislocation or migration of the mesh
- An increased risk the hernia will recur
- Intestinal perforation
Many people who developed complications because of a hernia mesh patch required revision surgery to remove the patch or repair a patch failure. These operations are often complex and may be much more invasive than the original repair.
