What Causes Hernias?
Muscles and tissues hold organs in place, but sometimes an organ can push through a weakened area or opening, causing a hernia to develop. This typically happens due to heavy lifting and other activities that cause muscle strain, like repeated pregnancies, strenuous exercise, obesity, chronic coughing, chronic constipation, etc. The abdomen, upper thigh, and groin are the most common places in which hernias develop.
What Is a Hernia Mesh?
A hernia mesh is used to support the weakened tissue section to allow the hernia to heal. Depending on your hernia, a medical professional will recommend either a “non-absorbable,” permanent hernia mesh or an “absorbable,” temporary hernia mesh that will deteriorate on its own over time.
There are three primary types of hernia meshes:
- Patches, which are surgically inserted to cover or support damaged tissue, helping it heal;
- Plugs, which plug up a hernia; and
- Sheets, which are placed in a manner in which muscles may grow through the sheet’s pores, allowing the hernia to heal.
Hernia Mesh Complications
Although hernia meshes are used to treat hernias, complications can and do occur:
- Adhesion in which the hernia mesh will adhere to the tissue around the hernia or become buried in the scar tissue;
- Implant erosion in which the hernia mesh deteriorates very quickly and suddenly instead of over a period of several years as intended;
- Mesh migrations in which the hernia mesh migrates, or moves, out of place;
- Bowel obstruction or perforation in which the bowels are blocked or develop holes; and
- Hernia recurrence in which the hernia mesh was ineffective and allowed the hernia to recur.
Infections, abdominal pain, chronic pain, and cancer are also common hernia mesh complications. Seromas, sacs of fluid under the skin, may also develop as a result of a defective hernia mesh. If any of these complications are left unaddressed, death may result.
Who Can Be Held Liable for Hernia Mesh Injuries?
Hernia mesh lawsuits are primarily naming the following companies and corporations as defendants:
- Atrium Medical
- C.R. Bard
- Ethicon, a Johnson & Johnson subsidiary
