Hernia Mesh Alert (Local Mississippi Lawyers)
Posted on Saturday, December 23rd, 2017 at 11:18 am
There are a number of hernia mesh manufacturers in the United States that are getting numerous reports of bad side effects from their products. The problems we are seeing range from Bowel Obstruction to Abdominal Adhesions requiring Surgical revision and others. If you have experienced complications following surgery for hernia, you should seek legal advice to see if your complications are related to defective aspects of the mesh we are in investigating.
The cause of the problems is being linked to, among other things, a defective new coating that medical device manufacturers started using in the last decade. The mesh coating is causing numerous problems.
So what exactly is the problem we are seeing?
The mesh is prone to causing infection and embedding in tissue and organs. To learn more about hernia complications click HERE to visit the FDA website.
As an aside and due to the way laws and patents are approved in the United States, drug and medical device manufacturers often game the system to create newfangled medical products when the tried and true….and cheaper models work fine. And sometimes, they make a bad bet. Think about the drugs and devices that have had to be pulled off the market in the past, Vioxx, Diet Drugs, Transvaginal Mesh etc. Often times its the lawyers in the United States that find the problems. Not the FDA.
If you have had a hernia surgery in the last few years, and you are experiencing complications or have had to have a surgical revision of your hernia repair, you should contact a lawyer now. Time may not be on your side because all cases have a statute of limitations.
