Hernia Mesh Claims and Class Action Litigation

Mesh material which is used to repair hernias following surgery has been shown to cause potentially serious injuries to unsuspecting people each day. There are an estimated 100 million hernia surgeries each year. There have however been a series of recalls in recent years of hernia mesh materials that were shown to be dangerous and capable of producing injury. If you have been implanted with hernia mesh following hernia surgery, and have later been diagnosed with serious health issues, you may have a valid claim for financial compensation.

What Is a Hernia?

Hernias are very common and many people experience the misfortune of having one. A hernia happens when a part of the body, such as an organ, protrudes through the tissue that houses and provides protection to the organ. There are different types of hernias that can occur but they are essentially classified medically as either an inguinal (groin), hiatal (abdominal), umbilical, femoral (upper thigh), or incisional (surgical area) hernia. This type of medical issue requires medical intervention.

What Is Hernia Mesh?

Hernias are repaired with surgery and as part of the surgery a material called mesh is implanted. The mesh serves to protect the tissue so that it heals following the surgical procedure. Mesh is applied by either stapling or by attaching the mesh to the site of the hernia repair.

Why Is Hernia Mesh Dangerous?

The problem with hernia mesh is the material oftentimes fails and can cause very serious injuries to innocent people. If the mesh material moves, expands, or shrinks after being implanted, very serious injuries can result. This requires the victim to undergo other surgeries to fix the injury caused by the mesh material.

Mesh can cause any of the following health injuries and health problems:

  • Adhesion to Tissue
  • Hernia Recurrence
  • Bowel problems and issues
  • Additional surgeries
  • Obstructions
  • Chronic pain, swelling, and infection
  • Allergic reactions
