HERNIA MESH LAWYERS
Have you had complications after a surgery that used hernia mesh? You might be entitled to compensation.
CREATING MORE PROBLEMS THAN IT SOLVES
A hernia happens when an organ pushes through the muscle or tissue that holds it in place. For example, the lower intestine can push through a weak spot in the abdominal wall.
During surgery to repair a hernia, doctors sometimes use a mesh made from thin, flexible polypropylene. The mesh can help to support muscles and fatty tissues that are too thin, damaged or weak for sutures alone.
Unfortunately, the polypropylene can trigger an immune response in the body, which can cause more problems than it solves, including:
- Serious infections
- Bowel perforations
- Blood vessel punctures and erosions
- Intestinal blockage and adhesions
- Organ damage
- New or reoccurring hernias
- The need for additional surgery, including revision surgery and surgery to remove the mesh.
Some of the manufacturers of pelvic mesh products include:
- C-Qur by Atrium
- Physiomesh, by Johnson & Johnson
