The main problem with Hernia Mesh litigation today is the FDA approves products based on privately-tested results to often benefit the manufacturers of the products; however, this propensity tends to hurt the consumers. Once the product is on the market, it spreads nationwide, endangering the public. As it starts to accumulate money for the manufacturer, the FDA takes its time to recall any products. The Law Offices of Rudolph F.X. Migliore, P.C. is well suited to protect you from these company conglomerates.
According to the FDA, more than one million Hernia repairs are performed every year in the United States. Complications that may result from this procedure include Hernia failure requiring replacement surgery, pain, infection, recurrence, adhesion, obstruction, and perforation. Even when products such as Physiomesh are recalled by the correlating companies, the FDA fails time and time again to publicize a recall.
The danger of Hernia Mesh products is rooted in its composition. Polypropylene, a type of plastic is used in Hernia Mesh products, is used throughout the industries for both medical and nonmedical products. It is one of the cheapest plastics on the market and is affordable to mass produce products with. However, as most plastics, the Material Safety Data Sheet of Polypropylene lists, “Applications involving permanent implantation into the body,” under prohibited uses.
