Hernia Mesh Failure Attorneys at Hughes & Coleman

Hernia mesh is a sterile woven fabric that may be used in hernia surgeries in addition to stitches to reinforce and strengthen the weakened tissue thereby lessening the chance of recurrence. This medical device is generally constructed from animal tissue or synthetic materials and has been in use since the 1950s.

Hernia Mesh Complications

The FDA warns patients of serious complications that have been reported concerning hernia mesh. Serious complications may include:

  • recurrence of the hernia
  • infections
  • serious pain
  • rejection
  • internal bleeding
  • tissue erosion
  • adhesion
  • bowel obstruction.

Esophageal damage can also result, which may cause permanent digestive system impairment. Some of these complications can be life-threatening or may result in permanent disability. Treatments for such complications may require antibiotics, additional surgery, or blood transfusions.

Physiomesh™ is a hernia mesh product manufactured by Ethicon, a Johnson & Johnson subsidiary. In a letter to healthcare providers dated May 24, Ethicon said that they were recalling their product following their review of unpublished data from two large European hernia registries. The letter claimed that the data revealed that hernia recurrence and reoperation rates following minimally invasive laparoscopic ventral hernia surgeries were higher than average when using the Ethicon product. The company has not been able to be more specific about the reasons behind these discrepancies, nor have they been able to provide surgeons with any further instructions that might lead to a reduction in the recurrence rate.

C-Qur™ is another hernia mesh product manufactured by medical device company Atrium. In August of 2013, the FDA announced a Class ll recall of the product after numerous reports of rejections, oozing adhesions, chronic infection and nerve damage.
