What Is Hernia Mesh and Why Are Some Models Dangerous?
Despite its name, hernia mesh has more applications than hernia repair. It’s also used in various surgeries, in chest wall reconstructions, and in wound treatment procedures. Unfortunately, some models of hernia mesh aren’t safe and are linked to serious side effects, complications, and injuries.
People who receive dangerous hernia mesh products can suffer from:
- Abdominal pain
- Bowel obstructions
- Intestinal fistulas
- Organ perforation
- Renal failure
When these complications go untreated or are severe, patients may even face life-threatening health problems. The three models of hernia mesh that pose the biggest threats to patients include:
- Atrium C-Qur
- Bard Ventralex ST
- Ethicon Physiomesh
