Hernia Mesh Cases We Handle

Bard Ventralex

These products can cause bowel perforation, bowel blockage, nerve damage and severe inflammatory reactions. We are actively taking clients who have had or are scheduled to have revision surgery or who have been told they need that revision surgery but it is too dangerous. These revision surgeries would be for adhesions, bowel obstruction repair, and bowel resection.

U.S. District Judge Edmund A. Sargus Jr., on March 9, 2021, indicated that the first bellwether Bard hernia mesh failure trial will begin on August 2, 2021.

Covidien Mesh Products

We are representing victims of the Covidien hernia mesh products which were implanted from Fall 2005 to the present. These products can also cause bowel perforation, bowel blockage, nerve damage and inflammatory reactions. We are handling Covidien cases nationwide on behalf of patients who have had a revision surgery, who have been told revision surgery is too dangerous, or who have been scheduled for revision surgery. The revision surgery is most commonly required due to adhesions, mesh migration, mesh movement, bowel obstruction repair or need for bowel resection.

Ethicon Physiomesh

Two studies were conducted to review how Physiomesh performed when used for laparoscopic ventral hernia repair. One study was performed by the German Medical Registry, the other by the Danish Medical Registry. The studies compared Physiomesh to other similar hernia mesh products on the market. In many instances, Physiomesh failed earlier than the other mesh products, with patients reporting serious side effects.

The Physiomesh product can fail when the mesh material breaks down earlier than anticipated. When the mesh breaks down or prematurely “erodes,” it can cause a bacterial infection, organ perforation, hernia recurrence or other serious side effects.

Hernia Mesh Failure Symptoms

Contact your doctor immediately if you experience any of the following symptoms, which may indicate possible mesh failure:

  • Bacterial infection
  • Pain or swelling at the incision site
  • Abscesses in the abdomen or groin
  • Perforation of organs or blood vessels
  • Recurrence of hernia

Hernia Mesh Complications

Infections: Removal of hernia mesh is usually the mandatory treatment for hernia site infections.

Adhesions: Scar tissue can form between the bowel and the hernia mesh device. This complication is most commonly associated with ventral hernia repairs where a coated mesh product was used.

Bowel Obstruction: Patients experience irregular bowel habits and/or constipation.

Leg, Groin, Abdominal, and Testicular Pain: can be an early indication of infection, adhesions nerve damage or bowel issues and is most commonly associated with inguinal hernia repairs.

Seroma: A fluid pocket forms around the hernia mesh.

Kidney Failure: has been reported in patients who were implanted with large coated hernia mesh products.

Liver Damage: has been reported in some patients where coated hernia mesh products were implanted.

Migration: occurs when the hernia mesh becomes displaced, contracts, rolls or “bunches up.” The patient will often develop a hard mass on/near the affected body part. These masses are called “meshomas.”
