What Can Go Wrong After Hernia Repair Surgery?
Hernia mesh, also known as surgical mesh, is a medical device inserted during hernia repair surgery to provide additional support during the healing process. It is used to strengthen weakened or damaged tissue and reduce the possibility of hernia recurrence.
The most common issues following a hernia repair with mesh include infection, severe pain, hernia recurrence, bowel obstruction and perforation, adhesions, and organ damage. Other possible complications are mesh migration and mesh shrinkage.
Hernia Mesh Recall and Lawsuits
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), recalled mesh products are the primary reason for bowel complications. Post-operative complications have also been linked to the degradation or stiffening of certain materials in surgical mesh, like polypropylene.
Hernia mesh implants have been the subject of FDA recalls since 2010. There have been cases of negligence in the production of Ventralight ST, Ventralex, Perfix, and other surgical mesh products. In one instance, the FDA issued a warning about counterfeit and contaminated mesh products circulating the market. Thousands of lawsuits are now being filed, citing serious side effects and complications due to hernia mesh failure.
How Do Hernia Mesh Complications Affect Veterans?
Many veterans suffer from hernias either directly related or secondarily connected to their time in service. Since military service is distinctly strenuous in nature, it is not uncommon for hernias to develop quickly. Sometimes veterans will even develop a hernia years later due to another service-related medical condition.
As with non-veteran patients, hernia mesh implants are commonly used during hernia repair surgery in veterans. Veterans suffering from hernia mesh-related complications or injuries may be eligible for compensation, whether it be from VA or through an independent lawsuit.
Either way, it is still important to contact us by completing the self-evaluation form to see if you qualify for compensation for your hernia mesh-related injuries.
