Hernia Patch and Hernia Mesh Surgery
In recent years, the overwhelming majority of hernia surgery performed has involved 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.
Several manufacturers have introduced different hernia repair mesh products, often with little research or testing. 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 product, manufacturers only conducted minimal testing to ensure they were safe or effective, essentially making consumers 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 throughout the United States had the patch implanted in their body. However, in many cases serious safety signals were ignored.
