Hernia mesh is intended to prevent the re-emergence of hernia. Faulty hernia mesh results in thousands of patients suffering and health complications every year. There are many types and classifications of the surgical mesh which a doctor may use, each with its own advantages and complications.
Many hernia mesh devices use materials that shrink, contract, or fail – causing nerve damage, harden, migrate, bowel damage, and cause the need for further surgery.
The lawsuits involving hernia mesh products state that the medical devices are imperfectly designed and the manufacturers did not warn the medical providers of the serious complications and associated device failures.
The surgical mesh complications are known to cause some serious health issues such as:
- Pain in the neighboring area of the hernia
- Chronic infection
- Obstruction in the bowel or intestinal region
- Recurrence of the hernia condition
- Perforation of organs
The companies continued misbranding and misrepresenting the devices as a safe and effective procedure despite regular reports on the adverse health complications.
The patients are thus making their voice heard through the lawsuits where the attorneys fight to get the compensation for:
- expenses of the ongoing and future medical treatments
- reduced capacity in earning
- damage for the present and future pain and suffering (inclusive of physical and psychological)
- loss of wages
- expenses for hospitalization and emergency room costs
- punitive awards, if any
Many of the synthetic hernia mesh products marketed since the year 2005 to the present were hurried to be marketed using the FDA’s 510k clearance process. The hernia surgery complications occurred in such a massive scale because they were manufactured and marketed with little to no studies as to the safety of the device. Many of these devices have been silently withdrawn from the market or otherwise have been recalled.
