Recall of the Mesh Patch

Surgery on hernia mesh | Alexander Shunnarah Trial Attorneys

The mesh patch was manufactured and released as an option for repairing post surgery hernias. The problem is that the makers of the patch were aware of a serious potential malfunction that has resulted in serious injury and even death for patients. Currently, the FDA has issued a full Class One recall for the mesh patch and pulled the product from the market. Numerous lawsuits are pending.

Hernias are a common health issue that regularly occurs after abdominal surgery. The surgery itself weakens the abdominal wall, and as a result, part of the muscle pushes through the wall, causing a hernia. This condition is extremely painful and requires surgery to repair. The mesh patch was designed for use in this type of surgery and was originally released to the market in 2002.

Mesh Patch malfunction and its symptoms

While the original version seemed to work quite well, an updated model was released in 2005 that is larger and supposedly more efficient. The issue is there is a malfunction within the product. The product is designed with a metal ring that is supposed to “spring” into place when implanted into the body of the patient. Instead, what has been happening is the product malfunctions and breaks apart at the joints. Once the ring breaks, it can have serious health implications.

Patients who have suffered through this malfunction have been subjected to:

  • Sepsis
  • Severe pain
  • Bowel and organ perforation
  • Damaging fusion of organs
  • Death

Again the FDA has issued a full Class One Recall on the mesh patch, meaning, not only has the product been pulled from the market, but all patients who currently have this product should have it removed as soon as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

Explore our FAQ to get the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions about hernia mesh recalls.

What is a hernia mesh recall, and why does it matter?

A hernia mesh recall occurs when a manufacturer identifies issues with a mesh product that could lead to adverse health effects, such as device failure, chronic pain, infections, or organ damage. Recalls are typically issued due to higher than expected rates of complications or failures. If a mesh implanted in your body is subject to a recall, it may significantly impact your legal rights and options for seeking compensation due to the acknowledged defects.

How do I know if my hernia mesh is recalled?

To determine if your hernia mesh has been recalled, you will need the specific product name and model number, which can usually be obtained from your medical records or your surgeon. This information lets you check the FDA’s website for any recall notices or alerts related to your hernia mesh. Additionally, a qualified attorney can help you gather this information and advise you on the implications of a recall for your case.

What should I do if I experience complications from a recalled hernia mesh?

If you suspect complications related to a recalled hernia mesh, the first step is to seek immediate medical attention to assess and document your condition. Following medical advice, contact a personal injury attorney who specializes in medical device litigation. An experienced lawyer can evaluate your case, help determine if your complications are linked to the recalled mesh, and guide you through the process of filing a claim for compensation.

What type of compensation can I claim if I’m affected by a recalled hernia mesh?

Compensation in hernia mesh recall cases may include payment for medical expenses related to additional surgeries and treatments, pain and suffering, lost wages, and diminished quality of life. In some cases, if the manufacturer knew of the risks and continued to market the defective product, punitive damages might also be pursued. The specifics of what compensation you may be entitled to will depend on the details of your case and the extent of your injuries. Your attorney will work to secure the maximum compensation available to address the full scope of your losses and suffering.
