Hernia Mesh Recall Lawsuits
If your hernia repair surgery involved a hernia mesh implant, you need to know whether the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a recall on your mesh product. Patients who have suffered serious injuries after being implanted with defective hernia mesh products have been filing lawsuits against the manufacturers and other responsible parties. Lawsuits in opposition to mesh manufacturers such as Ethicon, Bard, Atrium and Genzyme claim that the mesh implants cause severe injuries including adhesions, obstruction, seroma, fistula, chronic pain, infections and organ perforation. Many patients were forced to endure several unplanned revision surgeries to have the defective mesh removed and damaged organs repaired.

Hernia repair patients demand to know exactly when mesh manufacturers became aware that their products could cause such harmful health consequences. Injured patients also want to know why they were not warned about the related complications before their surgeries. Those who suffered adverse events and serious complications allege hernia mesh companies:
- Failed to satisfactorily test the hernia mesh products before placing them on the market;
- Manufactured and distributed defective mesh implants;
- Purposefully concealed the associated issues, risks and dangers of their devices; and
- Misrepresented both the effectiveness and safety of their hernia repair mesh products.

Numerous product liability lawsuits have been filed against hernia mesh product companies throughout the country. The plaintiffs claim that manufacturers had an obligation to warn doctors and their patients about any known complications of mesh implants as well as potential defects. Many mesh implants received approval through the FDA’s expedited process. Lawsuits against manufacturers, such as Ethicon and Atrium, have been consolidated in district court to save on time and court costs. Below are some of the major ongoing cases regarding hernia mesh lawsuits:
- Physiomesh: Plaintiffs assert that the multi-layer coating of Physiomesh prevented sufficient incorporation of the mesh, which led to severe complications. The implant is also alleged to be inadequate to endure regular abdominal forces, bringing about herniations through the implanted mesh itself.
- Atrium (C-Qur): Claims against Atrium’s C-Qur contend that its fish oil coating caused serious complications such as detachment of the mesh, adhesions and adherence to internal tissues and organs, severe abdominal pain and hernia recurrence. Many plaintiffs were forced to endure revision surgery and crucial operations to fully remove the mesh and repair organ damage.
- Covidien: Lawsuits associated with Covidien’s mesh products claim that the resin-based plastic contained in its implants was unsafe for human use. As such, the plastic should never have been used in any medical application involving contact with internal body tissues or implantation in the body. The plastic rings contained in Covidien’s mesh implants are suspected to have caused chronic pain, infections, obstructions and perforations.
