There are several dangers associated with hernia mesh rejection. If your body rejects the mesh, you may contract an infection, require removal surgery, or need a second surgery to implant another mesh.
Mesh rejection, migration, contraction, and other complications can require another operation or leave you with debilitating pain and other symptoms. If you suffered symptoms of hernia mesh rejection or another complication and required additional treatment, Tosi & Rose will review your case for free. Call us today at 888-311-8292.
Surgical Mesh Implants Have a History of Adverse Events
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), there are several commonly reported adverse events linked to surgical mesh repairs. Many of these complications occurred first with mesh products which were later recalled and are no longer available for use. These recalled mesh products were most commonly associated with:
- Hernia recurrence
- Bowel obstruction
- Bowel perforation
The FDA analyzed the reports they received from patients and doctors about adverse events and concluded that these recalled products were most commonly associated with bowel perforations and bowel obstructions. Despite the recall, people continue to report complications from hernia mesh repairs.
Understanding Hernia Mesh Repairs and How They Work
Surgical mesh is an implantable patch of synthetic material or animal tissue that helps to cover a hernia and support the surrounding tissue to prevent a recurrence. These medical devices are also sometimes used to support other weakened or damaged tissues to prevent tears or hernias.
Because of the number of reports of injuries and complications related to mesh implants, it pays to consider whether this is the best option for you before surgery. If your surgeon used one of these mesh implants and you suffered serious side effects, rejection, or other complications, it could be because of a recalled, defective, or dangerous medical device.
