What is Hernia Mesh?
Hernias have a high risk of re-opening (called “recurrence“). To reduce this risk, most surgeons stitch in a mesh patch or plug to help reinforce muscles and connective tissues. A hernia mesh device is meant to support and protect an area of the body that has experienced a hernia by being implanted into the patient. If a hernia mesh device is designed poorly or improperly implanted during surgery, it could eventually cause significant health problems for the patient. Some issues are caused by the hernia meshes ripping or moving, and others are caused by the mesh device failing to complete its intended function
Complications with Failed Hernia Mesh Devices
Unfortunately, there have been some complications associated with certain hernia mesh devices, including:
Severe abdominal pain
Infection around the hernia site
Additional surgery in case of recurrence
