How Hernia Mesh Implants Are Failing
Data indicates the recurrence and revision rates following laparoscopic ventral hernia repairs are higher with the device than rates associated with the comparator sets of mesh. The voluntary recall has been communicated to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Competent Authorities.
Based on information and belief, the recurrence and revision rates are higher due to multifactorial issues, such as possible product characteristics, as well as operative and patient factors. The individuals who experienced these recurrences or revisions may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. A skilled attorney familiar with hernia mesh cases could guide injured parties throughout the legal process.
The Symptoms of a Defective Implant
Specific symptoms victims of recurrences or revisions may suffer from include:
- Rejection/failure to incorporate
- Wound dehiscence
- Allergic reactions
- Chronic seroma
- Chronic and severe pain
- Bowel adhesions
- Sinus tract or fistula formation
- Organ perforation
Because some mesh implants were substantially equivalent to some of their other products approved by the FDA, human clinical trials were not required for many forms of hernia mesh.
