Hernia Mesh

death, abscess, bowel obstruction, mesh migration, perforation

ABOUT THE DEVICES

It is more common that not that hernia mesh medical devices are manufactured by several major international corporations, including but not limited to: C.R. Bard; Atrium Medical Corp; Ethicon, Johnson & Johnson; B. Braun Melsungen, AG; Gore Medical; LifeCell Corporation; and Medtronic. The devices are designed to repair or prevent tissue or internal organs from protruding through weak or torn abdominal muscles, the navel, groin, or diaphragm. The only method of addressing hernias is through surgical means. Although a hernia mesh is not required to prevent recurrence, it is the stand of care and a preferred method by many doctors.

Hernia mesh products are sold in several shapes. These shapes include sheets, patches and plugs. Some devices can also be absorbable or not, and may be coated or not.

PURPOSE OF THE PRODUCTS

Hernia mesh medical devices are the standard of care for the service of certain types of abdominal hernias. They are designed to mend and prevent tissue or organs, such as the intestines, to bulge through weak areas or tears in the abdominal muscles.

WARNINGS

In 2014, the FDA issued warnings that caused several manufacturers to issue recalls based on negative events, packaging and other serious issues.

SAFETY ISSUES

Numerous independent studies between 2009 and 2016 have identified dangerous risks and failure rates of hernia mesh products over 30 percent. Performed by clinicians and researched and published in prestigious journals such as Journal of the American Medical Association, these independent studies describe products that cause deeply harmful infections, which may result in further surgical intervention, harm and added risk with little or no benefit compared to newer, better designed alternatives.

HOW BERNSTEIN, DECAILLY & MARSHALL, PLLC CAN HELP

Recent successful lawsuits have alleged that C.R. Bard; Atrium Medical Corp; Ethicon, Johnson & Johnson; and others knew of the risks associated with the hernia mesh products they were heavily marketing. C.R. Bard has already settled a group of approximately 2,000 claims for $184 million, with more cases being filed each month.

If you have had a hernia mesh product surgically implanted and have suffered from pain, bleeding, injuries or are concerned that you may have undiagnosed injuries, contact us immediately for a no-cost case evaluation. You may be entitled to compensation. The irresponsibility on the part of these manufacturers is outrageous. Consumers and their families should understand the risks and how to protect themselves, and be entitled to compensation if these products have affected you - or continue to affect you - in a way that may cause long-lasting harm.
