Hernia Mesh Lawsuits.
Every year in the United States, 100,000 hernia meshes are implanted. While the meshes are meant to prevent the hernia from returning, they can also prove to be harmful, no matter what brand of mesh is used. The problem with this is that more than 90 percent of hernia-related surgeries used a mesh, and many patients who received this implant have reported severe injury and even cases of death.
Of the thousands of hernia mesh damage claims, there are several products that are tied to multiple reports. The list of products that are proven to be problematic include the following:
- Atrium C-Qur Mesh
- Bard PerFix Plug
- Bard 3D Max
- Bard Sepramesh
- Bard Ventralex
- Bard Ventralex ST
- Ethicon Physiomesh
- Ethicon Proceed patch
- Kugel Composix
Our professional attorneys encourage you and your loved ones to report any hernia mesh damage even if a different brand was used.
