More than one million hernia repairs are done each year in the U.S.
A hernia occurs when an organ or fatty tissue pushes out through the surrounding muscle or tissue. Hernias commonly involve the stomach or the intestine. In many cases, surgery may be required to restore the organ to its original location.
Hernia repair surgeries might use a mesh to support the tissue around the hernia as it heals post-surgery. Surgical meshes are used in nine of 10 hernia repair surgeries annually. They help to prevent hernia recurrence as well.
Unfortunately, many of these meshes simply don’t work and have caused severe complications for patients, leading to the FDA recall of hernia meshes manufactured by various brands.
The FDA has recalled several surgical mesh products used for hernia repair from the market.
According to the FDA, recalled mesh products were the main cause of bowel perforation and obstructions in hernia repair patients.
Common complications observed by patients include:
Hernia repair surgery is expected to heal you, not cause further injury.
