Hernia Repair Mesh Contains Plastics That May Eventually Fail

Governments are concerned hernia repair mesh failures may cause a human health crisis

Monday, August 12, 2019 - Polypropylene hernia repair mesh is a terrible idea, as terrible as its companion device, the transvaginal mesh because the material it is made of may not be able to withstand the body's natural inclination to reject the foreign object. Hernia repair mesh degrades, hardens, crumples and buckles as well as breaks apart and can cause serious health issues and blockages. Infection is also a possibility, not only from the surgery itself but also because hernia mesh plastic mesh construction acts as a breeding ground for bacteria. If you do not believe me, just Google the phrase "hernia repair mesh removal" to see pictures of how hernia repair mesh like Ethicon's Physiomesh deteriorates while it is inside the human body. Over 50,000 lawsuits have been filed accusing companies like Johnson & Johnson of bringing a faulty medical device to market and also failing to alert hernia repair mesh patients of the potential for disaster in the wake of the company voluntarily withdrawing Ethicon's Physiomesh Composite Hernia Repair mesh from the worldwide market due to an abnormally high number of removal surgeries that were required. Ethicon Physiomesh attorneys are helping American families and individuals understand their rights and benefits of filing a lawsuit claim with a free no obligation consultation and work on a contingency basis.

Experts in the medical community are starting to acknowledge that hernia repair mesh may just be a knock-off of the transvaginal mesh device that has caused so many women catastrophic medical complications including pain, bleeding, and being rendered permanently incontinent and a product that is all but banned now in the United States. Comparisons between the hernia repair mesh and transvaginal mesh are natural because the FDA approval of hernia repair mesh may have been due to its similarity to the transvaginal mesh, usually manufactured by the same company. The FDA's fast-track 510 (k) program allows medical devices to circumvent the normally stringent regiment of FDA testing if the company can show that the device is substantially similar to another already approved and on the market no matter if the device was recalled or not. Hernia repair mesh and the transvaginal mesh are virtually the same things. Again, Google it to see for yourself.

There is a likelihood that all polypropylene or plastic hernia repair devices will eventually fail and require surgical removal. There is no guarantee that hernia repair mesh removal will be successful. If you look at the Google images of decayed hernia repair mesh you will see that the mesh often breaks apart into many, possibly hundreds of very small pieces making its retrieval and the relief of the symptoms that it is causing impossible as well. Hernia mesh failure can lead to the device painfully pulling away from the original surgical site and falling into the lower abdomen and possibly perforating or blocking the bowels. If you are considering surgery to remove a hernia repair mesh know that it is imperative to save the retrieved medical device to be used in court as evidence. The hospital should be aware and provide you literature as to the company and location of the medical storage facility that they will use.
