More than one million hernia surgeries are performed every year in the U.S., and the use of hernia mesh implant is a common procedure. It was initially thought to be an effective alternative to the existing surgical hernia mesh repair.
Hernia mesh procedure is used to support the damaged or torn tissues of the pelvic or abdominal region from where the organ bulges out. However, pharmaceutical giants such as C-Qur and Physiomesh have been reported to manufacture meshes which are of defective designs quality. The commonly reported surgical mesh complications are chronic pain, seromas, adhesions, mesh erosion and bowel difficulty. Patients can also experienced the following side effects when they have been treated with faulty surgical mesh:
- Infection in the surgical area
- Allergic reaction
- Organ perforation or puncture
- Need for further corrective surgery
- Hernia recurrence
Patients can claim for financial compensation through surgical mesh lawsuit. The manufacturing companies have been blamed for masking the potential side effects of these devices. Neither the physicians nor the patients were properly informed about the scope of side effects that might arise post the surgery. In fact, the mesh particles can sometimes perforate the intestinal wall and release the waste materials in the blood stream and lead to a very serious condition. The mesh quality have been found to be degrading and patients might experience persistent pain and suffering which should call for immediate medical attention. The FDA also warned the physicians and the public to be aware of the complications associated with the product.
The victims can claim for the following damage awards:
- Expenses for the ongoing and future medical bills
- Expenses for wage loss as well as loss of earning capacity
- Compensation for emotional pain and suffering
