Hernia Mesh lawsuit Information

What is Hernia Mesh?

Hernia mesh is a product used during hernia repair surgery to stabilize and reinforce abdominal tissue. It is a product made out of natural and synthetic materials. One type of material is polypropylene, or plastic. This same material is the kind used in transvaginal mesh and bladder sling devices which have been known to cause several health issues.

What are the details of the hernia mesh class action lawsuit?

The reason for the hernia mesh class action lawsuit is that the materials can break down over time and wreak havoc on a patient internally. This resulted in a hernia mesh recall that resulted in some hernia mesh products being taken off the market.

Hernia Mesh Symptoms and hernia mesh side effects

As you can imagine, having a product break down inside the human body can cause a wide array of health problems and side effects. Some of these symptoms and side effects include:

  • Severe or chronic pain
  • Infection
  • Bowel blockage
  • Tissue fusion
  • Mesh migration
  • Organ perforation
