Hernia Mesh And Its Possible Complications
A hernia occurs when a portion of an internal organ or fatty tissue moves through a hole in the muscle or connective tissue. This often occurs in the abdominal wall or groin. It can also happen where there was a previous surgical incision.
Surgeons will often use a medical device known as hernia mesh to help support the weakened muscle or tissue after repairing a hernia. The use of mesh has become much more popular over the years to prevent hernias from reoccurring.
However, thousands of patients have filed lawsuits against several hernia mesh manufacturers, alleging that the device is defective and caused unnecessary side effects and complications. These include:
- Bowel obstruction and perforation
- Migration of the mesh inside the patient’s body
- Painful infections
- Adhesion to intestines
- Recurrence of hernia
If you are experiencing any of these painful complications from hernia surgery, our attorneys at Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP, can talk to you about your rights and options. It will be important to know what type of mesh you received. Hernia mesh that is the subject of lawsuits includes:
- Atrium Medical’s C-QUR hernia mesh

- Bard Davol’s Kugel Patch hernia mesh
