Hernia Mesh Complications
The law firm of Eisbrouch Marsh is currently reviewing claims related to hernia mesh complications. While it is true that all medical devices come with the risk of certain complications, you have a right to be properly informed of the extent of these risks. When a device manufacturer fails to adequately warn, they may be held responsible for resulting injuries.
Hernia mesh devices have been linked to an array of potential complications, including:
- Bowel obstruction
- Bowel perforation
- Perforation of surrounding organs
- Adhesion of scar tissue
- Hernia recurrence
- Migration of the mesh device
- Mesh shrinkage
If a serious complication arises, your doctor may tell you a revision surgery is necessary. This procedure removes and replaces the faulty mesh. It will involve undergoing a second invasive procedure, which is a significant undertaking for the patient – emotionally, mentally and physically. Additionally, you may miss time from work because of the problems with the surgical mesh, as well as the time off required for surgical recovery. You deserve a monetary award for all of the ways these complications have impacted your life.
What Is a Hernia?
A hernia is a fairly common health problem in the U.S. It occurs when an organ or tissue pushes through a gap or hole in the muscle or connective tissue. Often it is part of the intestine that pushes through the weak spot. Hernias arise when too much pressure is combined with a weakness in the muscle or connective tissue. The pressure may be caused by straining, obesity, weight-lifting, constipation and other things. Even coughing may cause a hernia if the tissue in the area of the hernia is vulnerable.
The following are the most common locations for hernias:
- Inner or outer groin
- Upper thigh
Mesh, made from synthetic or animal materials, is a common treatment. It is used to repair and support weakened tissue. When non-defective, it can work quite well. Unfortunately, a number of defective and dangerous mesh products have made it to market over the years.
