Has a hernia mesh patch or plug used in your hernia repair caused you harm? Reach out to a Detroit hernia mesh attorney to learn how you can obtain compensation for your damages.
Hernias occur when an intestine, organ, or fatty tissue squeezes through a hole or weak area within a muscle. Pregnancies, lifting heavy weights, and obesity are common causes of hernias. A standard procedure to repair hernias is for surgeons to insert a mesh patch or plug that reinforces the muscles and connective tissues.
However, some hernia surgical mesh implants have led to various complications for patients using them. Instead of improving the conditions of patients suffering from hernias, these implants have led to problems like chronic pain, infections, and many other unintended side effects.
If your hernia mesh surgery and/or repair has hurt you, a Detroit hernia mesh lawyer from Christensen Law can help you seek the compensation you deserve for your damages.
Risks and Hazards of Hernia Mesh Surgeries and Repairs
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) states that the following are common serious injuries associated with surgical repair of hernias (with or without mesh):
- Adhesion – Pain, infection, hernia recurrence, or scar-like tissue that sticks tissues together
- Obstruction – Blockage of the large or small intestine
- Fistula – Bleeding from an abnormal connection between organs, vessels, or intestines
- Seroma – Fluid buildup at the surgical site
- Perforation – A hole in neighboring tissues or organs
The FDA also reports that the most common issues with hernia repairs specifically are victims suffering from pain, infection, hernia recurrence, adhesion, and bowel obstruction. Reports of mesh migration and mesh shrinkage (contraction) have also followed some hernia repair surgeries.
Faulty mesh products have also been responsible for complications related to hernia repairs using surgical mesh. The FDA even determined that some of the defective products caused bowel perforation and obstruction complications for some victims.
