What is Mesh?
There are many types of mesh products available, but surgeons typically use a sterile, woven material made from a synthetic plastic-like material, such as polypropylene. The mesh can be in the form of a patch that goes under or over the weakness, or it can be in the form of a plug that goes inside the hole. Mesh is very sturdy and strong, yet extremely thin. It is also soft and flexible to allow it to easily conform to body's movement, position, and size. Mesh is used in both tension-free and laparoscopic tension-free hernia repairs.
How Mesh Works
Mesh is generally available in various measurements and can often be cut to size. Depending on the repair technique used, the mesh is placed either under or over the defect in the abdominal wall and held in place by a few sutures. Mesh acts as "scaffolding" for new growth of a patient's own tissue, which eventually incorporates the mesh into the surrounding area.
What goes wrong?
People get hernias. It happens. People don't get worse from surgery though, at least they aren't supposed too. Other known issues of surgery are; perforated organs, bowel obstruction, abscess, peritonitis, or even sepsis. This often will require even more surgery to remove the mesh. We are finding people that have received a mesh hernia procedure are filing lawsuits against mesh hernia manufacturers. Mesh products are made from a polypropylene plastic, which are allegedly not compatible with the human body. Accusations of designing a completely dangerous product and failing to warn patients and the medical community of its health risks.
