Have You Had Revision Surgery Because of Hernia Mesh Complications?
If you received a hernia mesh implant after 2006 and had to undergo additional surgeries because of complications, you may be eligible for financial compensation. Serious hernia mesh complications have been associated with numerous mesh devices. These complications can occur years after the hernia surgery took place making difficult for patients to pin down the cause. Some of the most common complications include –
- Encapsulated seroma – when plasma leaks into the cells surrounding the repair
- Adhesions and scarring
- Fistula- abnormal tube-like passage that connects organs, tissues, or vessels that do not normally connect
- Non-healing wound
- Intestinal obstruction- blockage in the intestinal pathway
- Recurrent hernia
- Migration of the Mesh- mesh may move from the surgical site
We are currently investigating claims that hernia mesh devices, even those that have not been recalled, caused some patients to suffer severe complications and side effects. Some patients have suffered debilitating injuries because of these mesh devices, including –
- Chronic pain
- Foreign body reactions
- Blockages in the large or small intestine
- Implant rejection
- Serious allergic reactions
- Reoccurring hernia
- Contraction (shrinkage) of the mesh
Some of these patients have been forced to undergo additional surgeries to repair the damage and remove the mesh. However, removal may be impossible because of the way the mesh integrates with the surrounding tissues leaving patients in severe pain and discomfort and facing serious complications that may not be able to be fixed.
Hernia Mesh Lawsuits
We believe that mesh makers knew or should have known about the risks and dangers their devices posed to patients, and we believe they owe patients who suffer infection, blockages, dense adhesions, and chronic pain and those who have been forced to undergo additional surgeries to try to repair damage and attempt to remove the mesh. We are aggressive defenders of patients who suffer harm because of medical devices, and we stand ready to fight for you.
