Hernia mesh is used to prevent organs and surrounding tissue from squeezing through holes or weak spots in abdominal muscles. Placed above or below the weak spot, or directly into the hole, this medical product is intended to act as scaffolding, allowing a patient’s own tissue to regenerate, eventually incorporating the mesh into surrounding areas. Tragically, serious complications have begun to arise in patients who have had hernia mesh placed.
Hernia mesh from medical device manufacturers including Atrium and Ethicon are now linked to hernia recurrence in addition to:
- Intestinal blockage
- Organ and bowel perforation
- Adhesive scar tissue
- Serious and debilitating pain
