After undergoing a painful hernia repair surgery, most patients want nothing more than to fully recover and get back to their normal routines. However, some studies have found mixed results for the use of hernia repair mesh implants. Implantation of mesh prevented the need for subsequent surgeries in relatively few patients, meaning a majority of patients still had hernia recurrences. Further, the mesh-related benefits can be offset by long-term complications associated with certain defective implants. Severe complications such as infections, bowel perforation, bowel obstruction, abscess and bleeding can develop in an instant and progress in severity over time. In the unfortunate case a hernia mesh implant is defective, patients are often required to go through second operations to remove the faulty products, repair damage done and replace the mesh. This additional operation is referred to as revision surgery. Undergoing revision surgery carries all the risks of the initial operation and increases the probability of patients suffering further complications, such as developing infections.

Manufacturers of hernia mesh implants have a legal obligation to ensure that their products to be implanted into patients are safe and will not cause them harm. Under certain conditions, manufacturers of defective hernia mesh can be held responsible for a patient’s revision surgery. After suffering complications caused by faulty hernia mesh implants, patients can hold the manufacturer liable under the following circumstances:
- The hernia mesh product was defective in design;
- The hernia mesh implant contained a manufacturing defect;
- The manufacturer failed to warn doctors and patients about potential complications associated with using the hernia mesh product; and
- The designer, manufacturer or other party acted in a careless, negligent or reckless manner.
Nevertheless, patients must first prove that the manufacturer is responsible for the complications they suffered. Patients should have suffered injuries that required revision surgery and resulted directly from the mesh implant. Further, patients are required to have undergone revision surgery for reasons related to the mesh and not caused by any fault of their own. For instance, the patient was told that they require the surgery to remove the implant, replace the mesh or repair any damage to organs. Manufacturers may also be held liable for revision surgery on patients who have had the FDA or manufacturer recall the hernia mesh used in their repairs. If you believe that your health is at risk, it is vital to call your doctor as soon as possible. Your surgeon may recommend removing the mesh to help lessen any injuries caused by the defective implant.
