Representing People Injured by Hernia Mesh

Hernia mesh was touted as a product designed to support damaged tissue and quicken recovery after hernia surgery.

However, manufacturers began quietly pulling the mesh off the market soon after release. Hernia mesh, much like transvaginal mesh, caused intense damage to organs and tissues surrounding the original surgery site, and often necessitated multiple surgeries to correct the complications of the mesh implant.

As of August 2019, over 6,800 lawsuits have been filed against the manufacturers of hernia mesh implants. The major manufacturers include Atrium, Bard Davol, Covidien, and Ethicon.

In 2011, Bard Davol settled a lawsuit for $184 million over its Kugel Patch–a mesh hernia patch–after recalling the product in 2005. The product was determined to cause bowel perforations and fistulas.

Destruction caused by Hernia Mesh

Hernia mesh lawsuits have four primary claims:

  1. The hernia mesh had a defective design;
  2. The hernia mesh had a manufacturing defect;
  3. The hernia mesh had improper labeling which failed to warn about the dangers; and

Thousands of hernia mesh victims have reported serious physical damages such as:

  • Adherence (sticking to internal tissue)
  • Bowel obstruction
  • Infection
  • Mesh failure (breaking, shrinking, eroding)
  • Migration (moving from where it was implanted)
  • Seromas (pockets of fluid) that require surgery
  • Fistula
  • Organ perforation
  • Severe pain (documented in medical records)
  • Revision/removal surgery
  • Erosion of the mesh, resulting in fever, infection, pain, and nausea
  • Abdominal pain
  • Chronic pain
  • Delayed and/or long-term consequences
