May 14, 2019

Hernia mesh surgeries are one of the most common surgical treatment in not just the USA but all across the globe. Many different types of products can be used for surgical hernia repairs, such as patches and plugs.

If you have been injured from a hernia mesh implant, you may be entitled to legal compensation with the help of a skilled mass torts attorney. Evaluate your case and safeguard your legal rights with the skilled hernia mesh attorneys.

A hernia occurs when an organ such as intestine, or fatty tissue bulges out through a hole or a weak area in a connective muscle. While any activity that increases abdominal pressure can result in a hernia, the most common causes of hernias are as follows:

  • Obesity
  • Lifting heavy weights
  • Pregnancy

Patients have reported problems with hernia mesh surgeries, resulting in product liability class action lawsuits against the hernia mesh manufacturers. Some of the more common types of health hazards experienced by patients which need the attention of a doctor and then the lawyer include the following:

  • Mesh erosion
  • Organ perforation or puncture
  • Hernia recurrence
  • Chronic pain
  • Infection in the surgical area
  • Allergic reaction
  • Need for further corrective surgery
  • Abscesses

Manufactured by Ethicon, the Physiomesh mesh product was cleared under the FDA 510(K) approval process in 2010.

The FDA 510(K) approval process is where it requires less testing than the any other testing procedure. In May 2016, Ethicon voluntarily withdrew the device from the market. This hernia mesh recall wouldn’t have happened if the FDA didn’t issue several warnings stating:

  • the company failed to develop the design and cease its deceptive marketing promises
  • given false or misleading information about the device
  • no proper clinical trial before the release of the product
