Many men and women suffer from hernias. Typically, the only way to treat a hernia is through surgery, and a hernia mesh will likely be used in that surgery. Hernia meshes are extremely common, and are used in the majority of hernia repair surgeries. However, there have been many cases of hernia mesh failure, which can result in chronic and painful symptoms or even death.
After investigation by the FDA, many hernia mesh manufacturers recalled their products. These manufacturers include:
- C.R. Bard: Kugel
- Atrium: C-QUR
- Ethicon: Physiomesh
If you had any of these hernia mesh products placed and have suffered complications, call us to see if you may have grounds for a lawsuit.
In addition to recalled products, a number of other hernia mesh products that have not been recalled yet are also facing lawsuits for causing severe complications. These include:
- Ethicon: Proceed surgical mesh and Prolene hernia system
- Covidien: Parietex products
- C.R. Bard: PerFix, 3DMax, Ventralex, Sepramesh, and Composix E/X
Large medical manufacturing corporations often put products on the market without undergoing proper testing first. If you have experienced complications arising from a hernia mesh, filing a lawsuit sends a message to these corporations that putting profits over patient safety will not be tolerated. In addition, you may be able to obtain compensation for your medical bills as well as pain and suffering.
