AlloDerm Hernia Mesh Lawyers No Longer Accepting Claims

The product liability lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are no longer reviewing bew lawsuits for individuals who have suffered serious injuries following hernia surgery with AlloDerm Regenerative Tissue Matrix.

The use of AlloDerm mesh for hernia repair or abdominal reconstruction surgery has been linked to reports of serious and debilitating complications, including:

  • Abdominal Pain and Infection
  • Inflammation, Swelling, Bruising and Deformity
  • Injury to Nearby Organs or Blood Vessels
  • Adhesion Failure
  • Hernia Recurrence

Financial compensation was pursued through an AlloDerm hernia mesh lawsuit as a result of the manufacturer’s failure to provide adequate instructions on the use of the patch and failure to warn about the risk of complications. New cases are no longer being accepted. This page is maintained for informational purposes only.


AlloDerm is a biologic product made from donated human tissue, which was introduced by LifeCell in 1992 for use with burn patients, during dental surgery and for plastic or reconstructive surgery.

Around 2000, LifeCell began promoting Alloderm for hernia repair and abdominal reconstruction surgery, which has been linked to a number of serious problems where the mesh may begin to stretch, expand, thin out or sag once implanted.

LifeCell promoted AlloDerm hernia mesh without adequately testing the product, providing instructions on the proper use or warning consumers and the medical community about the risk of AlloDerm patch complications with hernia repair.

Although the manufacturer knew that the AlloDerm graft should be “pre-stretched” if it was going to be used during a hernia repair, they failed to adequately share this information with surgeons.

Use of the AlloDerm mesh for hernia surgery was never adequately studied, yet LifeCell promoted the product as safe and effective. This resulted in wide use of the product over other hernia repair products.

AlloDerm lawsuits alleged that LifeCell knew or should have known that the patch was not suitable for hernia surgery as marketed, and that it did not have proper warnings and instructions that may have reduced the risk of complications.

A “silent” AlloDerm recall has now been issued for use of the product during hernia surgery or abdominal repair, as LifeCell has stopped advertising the AlloDerm graft for that purpose.


The AlloDerm lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are no longer accepting new claims for individuals who experienced problems after receiving the mesh patch during hernia surgery or abdominal repair. This page is maintained for informational purposes only.
