Patients are currently filing lawsuits with allegations that hernia mesh manufacturers have created defective medical devices and have failed to warn patients and doctors of the potential health complications adequately. These lawsuits are being filed against manufacturers such as Ethicon, C.R. Bard, and Atrium Medical Corp.
The claims from patients are complaints that the hernia mesh used for their hernia surgeries have caused health issues such as chronic pain, infection, adhesions, hernia recurrence, bowel perforation, bowel obstruction, mesh migration, mesh rejection, and more. Some patients are required to undergo hernia revision surgery.
