‍What is Hernia Mesh?

Hernia mesh is a synthetic material, typically made of polypropylene or other plastic fibers that is used to treat hernia-related disorders. This material is inserted into the body either through an incision in the abdominal wall or laparoscopically, meaning no incisions are made. The main purpose of the hernia mesh is to reinforce weakened areas of tissue and provide additional support to prevent future hernias from occurring.

Although hernia mesh can be effective in preventing hernias from recurring, it also has been known to cause serious medical complications as well. In some cases, patients have reported extensive pain due to infection and inflammation caused by the mesh material eroding inside the body over time.

Additionally, the mesh can move away from its original position, causing nerve damage and chronic discomfort. In rare cases, the mesh has been known to cause intestinal obstruction, leading to severe illness or death.

Given these potential risks, hernia mesh must only be used safely. Patients should always consult with their doctor before undergoing any type of surgical procedure involving hernia mesh. Additionally, patients should ask questions about the potential risks associated with using this material before surgery, so they are fully informed before making any decisions. By taking these precautions, patients can help ensure that they have the best outcome possible when treating a hernia-related disorder with hernia mesh.

Manufacturers of Hernia Mesh

The following corporations have been accused of defectively designing and producing hernia mesh that has caused people injury.

  • Johnson & Johnson (Ethicon Physiomesh)
  • Atrium (C-QUR hernia mesh)
  • Covidien (Parietex mesh)
  • C.R. Bard (PerFix, Kugel, 3DMax, or Ventralex mesh)

When it comes to hernia mesh, some of the most cited names in lawsuits are Johnson & Johnson, Atrium, Covidien, and C.R. Bard. All four companies have been sued for allegedly designing and producing defective hernia mesh that caused injury or complications such as infection or bowel perforation in patients who had them implanted.

The Johnson & Johnson product is known as Ethicon Physiomesh and was removed from the market in 2016 due to reports of high complication rates. Similarly, Atrium’s C-QUR hernia mesh has also been subject to several recalls due to an increased risk of adhesion and infection when compared with other similar products on the market.

Covidien’s Parietex mesh was the subject of a voluntary recall in 2015 due to reports of serious risks and failures associated with its use. And finally, C.R. Bard’s PerFix, Kugel, 3DMax, and Ventralex meshes have all been linked to numerous patient injuries as well.

It is important to know that if you have been injured or had complications after having hernia mesh implanted by any of these companies, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and other damages. If you believe you may have a case, it’s best to speak with an experienced product liability attorney right away to learn more about your legal rights and options. You shouldn’t have to suffer due to the negligence of these medical device manufacturers.

If you or a loved one has experienced any kind of injury or health complication after having a hernia mesh implanted, don’t hesitate to reach out for help from an experienced legal professional.
