About Hernia Mesh & Its Complications

A hernia develops when pressure forces an organ or intestine through a weak spot in muscle or tissue. Hernias can occur in the groin, abdomen, thigh or belly button and can cause discomfort or pain.

A few options are available to treat a hernia, but if it continues to grow or causes pain, doctors often recommend surgery. During the operation, a surgeon may implant a hernia mesh that provides additional support at the weak point to prevent the hernia from recurring. Although this operation is intended to treat problems associated with hernias, some patients have suffered complications.

Patients have reported various complications caused by defective hernia mesh implants. Because of this, many manufacturers have recalled the devices, and they are no longer being used. Recently, Ethicon took its Physiomesh off the market after studies found it caused severe side effects in patients, and additional operations were needed. Similarly, Atrium issued a recall of its C-QUR mesh after it was found to cause adverse effects. Unfortunately, many patients had defective hernia mesh products implanted before they were recalled, and those patients may experience complications because of the implant.

Common hernia mesh complications include:

  • Chronic pain
  • Infection
  • Hernia recurrence
  • Bowel obstructions
  • Mesh breakdown
  • Mesh migration
  • Adhesion
  • Organ perforation
