Manufacturers as big as C.R. Bard, Inc. are currently being sued for creating a hernia mesh with material that is hazardous for long term implantation in the human body. According to court documents, the manufacturer knew about the potential danger of the product and not only released it to the market, but claimed that it was safe. The manufacturer voided all warning from the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration. They warned that the resin based plastic, common in hernia mesh products, should absolutely not be used in medical products designed for the human body or be in contact with internal body fluid or tissue. The length of exposure does not change the level of danger of the material.
Symptoms related to the recurrence of the hernia or hernia mesh failure include pain, abdominal abscesses, adhesions, intestinal fluids, migration of the mesh, scarring, blockages/obstruction of the small or large intestines, perforations, and infections.
Speak with your doctor to find out what type of hernia mesh you had implanted: Physiomesh, Proceed Ventral Patch, Parietex, C-Que, Visilex, Composix, Composix EX, Spermatex, 3D Max, Sepramesh, Perfix Plug, Ventralex, or Kugel. The manufacturers responsible for pushing this product are Ethicon, Covidien, Atrium and Bard/Davol.
