The Body's Autoimmune System May Reject Polypropylene Hernia Repair Mesh

Experts agree that plastic hernia mesh has no business permanently inside the human body and can cause adverse rejection reactions

Tuesday, January 5, 2021 - Millions of people around the world contemplate having hernia repair surgery every year. Hernia repair surgery may not be necessary if the pain and discomfort of the injury do not interfere with everyday activities, or interferes with work, or the enjoyment of life. Doctors may tell a patient that the surgery could be postponed until the pain or discomfort becomes unbearable. One should know that a hernia will not repair itself. Hernias usually progress to a stage where surgery becomes inevitable. The sooner a person has a hernia surgically repaired, the easier the hernia may be to fix and the better the repair will be. Hernia repair patients that had an active lifestyle may never be able to return to normal since permanent hernia repair mesh runs the risk of the mesh pulling free from its place above a surgically repaired hernia. Migrating hernia mesh can damage tissue or organs, perforating them and causing internal bleeding and infection. Some hernia repair mesh, like Ethicon's Physiomesh Hernia Repair Mesh, has a layer of natural tissue and a layer of polypropylene plastic used in hernia mesh for its strength and flexibility that experts believe may not be compatible with human tissue. Individuals with hernia mesh rejection problems have sought legal advice from Physiomesh Hernia Mesh Lawyers and have filed lawsuits that alleged Ethicon failed to warn them of the dangers of this unproven medical device. Hernia repair mesh is comparable to the banned transvaginal mesh made by the same companies, made from the same materials, and malfunctions in much the same way. Bellwether hernia repair mesh trials are to begin early this year.

Polypropylene plastic used in hernia repair mesh may invite an autoimmune rejection response. A severe autoimmune rejection response can leave a patient with a long list of symptoms that, like a hernia, will only worsen over time requiring revision surgery to locate and remove the hernia mesh that is being treated as an invading foreign object. Experts in the field list the known symptoms of hernia mesh autoimmune rejection and a Hernia Mesh Rejection Lawyer can advise those that seek legal guidance. Top ClassActions.com writes about some of the symptoms hernia mesh patients have reported, "Symptoms of hernia mesh rejection are likely to be experienced in the first few days and weeks after hernia repair using mesh. These symptoms are most likely to first be experienced as unexplained fever, chills, and muscle aches. As the process progresses, the patient may then have nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting." Hernia repair surgeons published by the National Institute of Health (NIH) express concern about the human body's rejection of polypropylene plastic hernia repair mesh. "Polypropylene meshes that are commonly used for inguinal hernia repair may trigger granulomatous foreign body reactions. Here, we show that asymptomatic patients display mesh-associated inflammatory granulomas long after surgery."
