Complications from Hernia Operation

hernia operation

Hernia mesh is used to support damaged tissue after hernia surgery and help quicken the recovery. The use of these meshes has been popular for a long time now. But some patients who have undergone hernia repair surgery experienced severe complications, which they believe were caused by the implanted surgical mesh.

Several hernia mesh models have been linked to severe health effects after the hernia operation, including:

  • Adhesions
  • Bacterial infections
  • Hernia recurrence
  • Additional surgeries to treat a mesh related injury or failure
  • Mesh migration
  • Additional surgeries to treat a hernia recurrence
  • Obstructions
  • Pain
  • Swelling

The key legal issue

The hernia mesh lawsuits claim that the medical devices are defectively designed and the mesh manufacturers have failed to properly inform the medical providers as well as the patients of the serious adverse complications and device failures that are possible. Plaintiff attorneys argue that several of the hernia mesh products have been wrongly designed and are resulted in undue repairs and injuries that would not have occurred if the doctors were aware of it or substitute mesh product or sutures had been utilized.

Personal injury lawsuits accuse hernia mesh manufacturers like Ethicon and Atrium of the following:

  • Designing an “unreasonably dangerous and defective product” which leaves the patients susceptible to severe adverse reactions
  • Selling a product which failed to perform reasonably as intended
  • Failed to warn defendants and medical professionals of the risks linked with these products

A hernia mesh lawsuit can help recover compensation for the following:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages (both of past and future)
  • Pain and suffering

Hernia mesh is used in surgical procedures for hernia repair but certain models of hernia mesh are now facing increased scrutiny after patient spoke about the serious health complications and side effects. If you or a loved one suffered infection, surgical mesh failure, an allergic reaction,  or internal organ damage after undergoing the implant procedure that used surgical mesh, you may be entitled to financial compensation.
