A Helpful Introduction to Hernias & Hernia Mesh

We believe that the more you know, the better equipped you are to take action against irresponsible medical device manufacturers who produce faulty mesh.

A hernia is a serious and painful medical condition. A hernia develops when an organ, such as the intestines, or fatty tissue pushes through a weak or damaged spot in the surrounding tissue or muscle. Anything that causes a buildup of pressure inside your abdomen has the potential to lead to a hernia. Examples include lifting something heavy, bowel problems, and persistent coughing and sneezing. Poor nutrition and smoking can also be factors, as they may lead to weakened or damaged tissue.

There are six common types of hernias, including:

  • Inguinal and femoral hernias: Occur in and around the groin
  • Incisional hernias: Push through a cut or scar in the abdomen
  • Ventral hernias: Push through the abdominal wall
  • Umbilical hernias: Develops at the belly button
  • Hiatal hernias: Located higher up in the stomach, around the diaphragm

A hernia mesh is a medical device typically made out of synthetic materials or animal tissue. The purpose of a hernia mesh is to reinforce the weak tissue where a hernia occurred. It acts as a wall, which keeps organs and fatty tissue from pushing through.

Hernia mesh made from animal tissue and some types of synthetic material can be absorbed by the human body. Absorbable mesh is not intended to be a long-term solution because it degrades over time. In contrast, certain types of synthetic meshes cannot be absorbed and are permanent installments.

Defective Hernia Mesh Symptoms

The symptoms associated with a defective hernia mesh are very serious. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you may be the victim of a defective hernia mesh.

According to the FDA, the most common complications related to a recalled hernia mesh are:

  • Pain
  • Infection
  • Recurrence
  • Adhesion
  • Obstruction
  • Perforation

You Don’t Have to Face a Medical Device Manufacturing Company Alone
