HERNIA REPAIR PROBLEMS AND SIDE EFFECTS
Hernia repair is one of the most commonly performed surgeries in the United States. Millions of individuals undergo the procedure each year, and hernia repair generates billions in revenue for hospitals and manufacturers of hernia mesh products.
Surgical procedures involving the use of a mesh product may include open surgery or laparoscopic hernia repair, which is a minimally invasive procedure that allows the surgeon to insert tools through several small incisions in the abdomen.
The most common types of hernia repair involve:
- Ventral Hernia: developing in the abdominal or ventral wall
- Incisional Hernia: developing through an incision or scar in the abdomen
- Inguinal Hernia: developing in the inner groin
- Femoral Hernia: developing in the upper thigh or outer groin
- Umbilical Hernia: developing at the belly button
- Hiatal Hernia: developing inside the abdomen
Hernia Patch and Hernia Mesh Designs May Be Unreasonably Dangerous
The overwhelming majority of hernia surgery performed involves the use of a medical device called hernia mesh or hernia patch, which is designed to close the wound and help heal the underlying tissue.
In recent years, manufacturers have introduced a steady stream of new products for use during hernia repair. Approval is often obtain through the FDA’s controversial 510(k) approval process, which only requires that the manufacturer establish that the product is “substantially equivalent” to a previously approved product.
Although many hernia mesh implants are marketed as a “new” or “innovative” designs, manufacturers only conducted minimal testing before turning patients into uninformed test subjects.
Years after certain hernia repair products were introduced, dangerous defects have been uncovered. In many cases hernia mesh recalls come after thousands of individuals already had the patch implanted in their body.
Hernia mesh complications cause individuals to experience severe pain and disability, including hernia recurrence and the need for additional surgery to remove the patch.
If a defective or dangerous product was used during your surgery, substantial compensation may be available through a hernia mesh settlement.
It is not necessary to know what type of mesh was used during your hernia repair surgery.
