Hernias occur when tissue or organs bulge through a weak spot or tear in the abdominal muscle. Hernia mesh is a screen-like surgical implant used to repair this condition. Hernia mesh has been shown to be effective at preventing reoccurrence and is currently the standard repair procedure.
Unfortunately, there have been some mesh products that have been recalled, resulting in reports of patient suffering. Complications such as infections, adhesions, and bowel obstructions have been reported by patients who received these recalled products during their reparative surgery. Mesh products for the use of a hernia or transvaginal repair manufactured by Ethicon, Bard, and other brands are the primary offenders of these complications.
If you received hernia mesh and are experiencing complications, you may be eligible to file a hernia mesh lawsuit in Pittsburgh, PA. Below is the client criteria required to qualify for a lawsuit.
