Hernia Mesh Revision Surgery
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), over one million hernia repair operations are performed throughout the United States each year. Since there is a high risk of hernias recurring, hernia mesh is often attached during the operation to help reinforce weakened tissues. Many patients falsely believe that their hernias are repaired and may even forget the mesh was implanted inside of them.
Nevertheless, complications concerning the implanted hernia mesh have been reported with even some of the most frequently used brands, and can appear years after the surgery. Without warning, patients may end up back on the operating table undergoing lifesaving hernia mesh revision surgery. There is no doubt that hernia mesh complications can traumatize patients. Serious complications can be life-threatening and often require urgent hernia mesh revision surgery to remove the defective mesh and repair the hernia.

Hernia repair patients can suffer numerous serious and even deadly complications caused by defective surgical mesh. Many of these patients had their hernias repaired with mesh products that have since been removed from circulation or recalled. Generally, hernia mesh revision surgery may be necessary if the product was subject to an FDA mesh recall, the implant failed or complications developed following a previous hernia mesh repair operation. Some of the more common complications suffered by patients may include, but are not limited to, chronic pain, infection around the area, allergic reaction, bowel obstruction, peritonitis, broken mesh, erosion of mesh, mesh migration, mesh shrinkage, hernia recurrence, abscesses, organ puncture or perforation, internal bleeding, sepsis and fistula formation. Your doctor may need to take X-rays and conduct further testing to determine the condition of the hernia mesh and confirm that it is indeed the implant causing the problem.

Hernia mesh revision surgery is designed to eliminate or minimize the complications triggered by the original hernia repair surgery. As such, revision surgeries are often much more invasive and complex than the initial repair operations. The risks associated with revision surgery are similar to, if not greater than, the original hernia surgery. Risks inherent with revision surgery may include:
- Acute pain;
- Nerve damage;
- An adverse reaction to the anesthesia;
- Damage to nearby veins or arteries;
- Damage to the bladder, intestines or other vital organs and tissues; and
- Extended recovery time.
Just like with a previous hernia surgery, complications can arise after revision surgery. The chances of a hernia coming back again increase with each recurrence. It is important to bear in mind that in addition to the associated bodily risks, a patient’s emotional and mental health can be tested. For instance, severe pain can lead to post-operative depression, which is known to lower an individual’s threshold for pain. If you are suffering complications from your previous hernia repair operation, revision surgery may increase your quality of life and help prevent future health problems. You should consult with your doctor on whether or not revision surgery is in your best interest.
