Hernia Mesh Mass Tort Litigation

Product Description

Hernia mesh is a medical device used to provide additional support to weakened or damaged tissue during hernia repair surgeries. These meshes are often made from synthetic materials or animal tissue. Major manufacturers of hernia mesh include Johnson & Johnson/Ethicon, C.R. Bard, Atrium, Covidien, and Gore.

Harmful Effects

While hernia meshes have been used to treat a significant number of patients, concerns have arisen regarding their safety and potential complications. Some patients have reported severe side effects after hernia mesh implantation, including chronic pain, mesh migration, organ perforation, and infections. In certain cases, the complications have been so severe that additional surgeries were required to remove or replace the mesh. These adverse effects have led to a surge in lawsuits against the aforementioned manufacturers, with claimants alleging that the companies failed to warn about potential risks and produced defective products.
