Hernia Mesh Models Linked to Injuries
A variety of mesh products are used to repair hernias, but reports suggest that certain types of mesh pose an increased risk of injury to patients. These models include:
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an injunction stopping the manufacture of Atrium’s coated C-Qur mesh in 2015.
A plastic polyprylene hernia mesh product manufactured by C.R. Bard, Inc., Ventralex ST is linked to serious allergic reactions and other side effects. Despite FDA warnings for transvaginal mesh made of the same material, there are no warnings about Ventralex ST mesh used for hernia repair.
Ethicon voluntarily recalled its Physiomesh hernia mesh after researchers discovered a higher-than-normal rate of hernia recurrence that required surgery to correct.
If you don’t know what type of hernia mesh is causing complications for you or your loved one, we still want to talk to you. Our team has years of experience handling medical device lawsuits, and we can request surgical records to help us determine your rights to compensation.
