What is Hernia Repair Mesh?
Hernia mesh is a surgical implant that is used to repair damaged areas in the muscle or connective tissue. Usually a result of an abdominal organ, intestine or fatty tissue breaking through a weakened area, the screen-like design of hernia mesh provides extra support to the damaged wall. Hernia mesh products come in many different shapes and sizes, designed for the different kinds of surgical repairs.
Dangerous Effects of Hernia Mesh Implants
There are many complications that may develop after undergoing hernia mesh surgery. When the mesh implant is inserted incorrectly, some have seen that the mesh implant migrates from its original position. Others have developed Seromas, which are pockets of fluid that require surgery to be removed. There have also been reports of the mesh moving and perforating other organs as well as becoming stuck to internal tissue.
While multiple manufacturers have recalled these medical devices, the damage to thousands has already been done. In 2017, the FDA released a statement saying, ”Many complications related to hernia repair with surgical mesh that have been reported to the FDA have been associated with recalled mesh products that are no longer on the market.”
