Medical devices have revolutionized health care, but when these devices are defective, it can cause disastrous consequences. If a medical device manufacturer designs and sells a faulty medical device, they end up harming patients they are supposed to help.

For instance, the Covidien hernia mesh products were approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for use in hernia repair procedures. However, with tie, the FDA has noted hernia surgical mesh devices may be linked with the development of some serious complications.

Some of the most commonly reported issues with the defective hernia meshes include but not limited to:

  • Hernia recurrence
  • Pain
  • Infection
  • Adhesions forming due to scar-like tissues which stick tissues together
  • Bowel obstruction that causes blockage of parts of the intestines

Despite safety regulations and testing, hundreds of defective and dangerous medical products and goods slip through the cracks and ultimately make way to the patients. From defective IVC filters to hernia mesh devices, some companies have been utterly careless or negligent in releasing unsafe products while others failed to include fitting and adequate instructions or clear warnings. This is when you need defective product lawyer who can help you represent and get you the fair settlement.

Hernia mesh implants can fail in numerous ways, and each failure can have its own set of symptoms. Many hernia mesh symptoms can be vague, but as mentioned earlier, they can be really life altering. The hernia mesh recall by the FDA took place only after thousands of reports were made to the authority who complained about being more hurt than being cured.

The companies that manufacture surgical mesh say they try to produce the safest, most effective products. Over the last two decades, that is from 2005-2007, manufacturer C.R. Bard was forced to recall their products. In 2012, Atrium Medical Corporation also  faced a recall order of its C-Qur mesh. Recall of Ethicon’s Physiomesh was primarily made out of a composite plastic known as polypropylene. Patients began to report serious injuries and illnesses and in 2016 it was asked to recall the device.
