Hernia Mesh Complications

Chronic pain, severe infections, bowel obstruction, perforations and adhesions are just some of the life-altering complications associated with hernia mesh implants. Over the past several years, hundreds of Americans have filed claims alleging that hernia mesh devices produced by Ethicon, C.R. Bard, Atrium and other manufacturers were defective and sold without adequate warning.

Due to the high rate of serious health complications and hernia recurrence, multiple mesh implants have been recalled from the market, including Ethicon’s Physiomesh inserts. At present, courtrooms across the country have been inundated with hernia mesh lawsuits in which plaintiffs are demanding monetary compensation for their injuries, hospital bills, corrective surgeries, pain, suffering and other losses.

Hernia Mesh Lawsuit Settlements

One of the most commonly asked questions by claimants who are awaiting their day in court is “how much is my hernia mesh case worth?” While previous hernia mesh litigation suggest a broad range of possible outcomes (Kugel mesh settlements averaged $70,000 per plaintiff and a separate trial resulted in a $1.5 million dollar verdict), the amount of compensation recovered will depend on the specific circumstances of each case.  The following are some factors that will affect the potential value of your case.

Patients undergoing incisional hernia repair with hernia mesh may have a lower risk for hernia recurrence, but complications can occur up to five years after surgery, a new study says.

The study by Dunja Kokotovic and colleagues published in JAMA Surgery and presented at the 2016 Clinical Congress of the American College of Surgeons showed that patients with hernia mesh have a lower rate of hernia recurrence.

“In this registry-based nationwide cohort study including 3,242 patients, mesh repair was associated with a lower risk of reoperation…”

Hernia Mesh Lawsuit

If you had hernia surgery and a mesh device was used, you may be entitled to significant compensation. It is important that you file a claim against the manufacturer of these dangerous products as soon as possible. Claims are currently being filed against several medical device manufacturers for failure to warn doctors and patients of the risks associated with hernia mesh implants.

Why is the Hernia Mesh Dangerous?

Many studies have shown that the companies making these mesh implants knew or should have known that the plastic used to produce these products are not safe to use in humans. Unlike other devices or techniques that can be used to repair hernias, the polypropylene used to make some of the most popular hernia mesh devices use a type of plastic that has been linked to:

  • Pain – Patients have reported feeling aching, burning or sharp stabbing pain in the groin or near the incision site.
  • Internal Bleeding – Identifiable by pain in the abdomen and/or blood present in stool, urine or vomit.
  • Infection – An infection could cause signs of further illness, including fever, chills, nausea or vomiting.
  • Need for Surgery – The symptoms may be potent enough to necessitate a corrective surgery, or even a complete removal of the mesh.

Common Hernia Mesh Injuries and Complications

  • Infection
  • Pain
  • Bowel obstruction
  • Migration, the implant moving from its original application
  • Perforation of organs and tissues
  • Adhesion, scar-like tissue that sticks together

FDA Reports

The FDA has documented dozens of adverse event reports against Physiomesh with some as recent as spring 2017, including events where the mesh was broken into pieces, had a hole in the center, ruptured after surgery, and presented bowel obstruction among other problematic events. In some of these reports, the surgeons even stated that the surgical mesh was a failure.

The FDA noted that the majority of these adverse events were related to bowel obstructions, pain, infection, adhesion and hernia recurrence. As of February 2018, there are more than 54,000 hernia mesh lawsuit cases pending in state and federal courts.

The value of your hernia mesh case

First, it’s important to understand the types of damages available to plaintiffs in product liability litigation.  These include:

  • Compensatory damages: This compensation is intended to reimburse plaintiffs for their actual hospital and medical expenses (both current and future) lost income, and future lost earning potential.
  • Pain and suffering: Physical pain resulting from the injury, including aches and pains, discomfort, scarring, and limitations on normal activity
  • Loss of consortium: When one spouse is deprived of the love, affection, comfort and other normal family relationship due to their partner’s injury
  • Punitive damages: Punitive damages are intended to punish the defendant if it is determined that they acted with reckless or wanton behavior that intentionally caused harm.

In order to determine the potential value of a hernia mesh case, your attorney will evaluate the following elements:

  • The type of hernia mesh device used -Was the device recalled by the FDA or voluntarily pulled off the market by the manufacturer? Are there substantive studies and adverse reports about serious complications tied to the particular type/model of hernia mesh
  • Level of injuries suffered– Defective medical devices can cause a wide range of debilitating injuries that diminish one’s quality of life. The nature and severity of a plaintiff’s injuries are one of the most critical factors in assessing the value of a claim. In situations where the plaintiff endured multiple surgeries, prolonged hospital stays and sustained permanent damage, the payouts will likely be much higher.
  • Amount of medical bills– the amount of money paid for doctor’s visits, diagnostic tests, hospitalization, medications, surgeries and assistive medical devices.
  • How the injuries/complications have impacted your life – compensation awards are generally higher in cases where your injury has had significant negative impacts on your daily life and ability to work.  For example, a plaintiff who suffers from chronic infections and life-long digestive problems due to hernia mesh complications.
  • Loss of wages and future earnings – The amount of lost income will also factor in to a settlement or jury award. Plaintiffs who were unable to work for a long period of time or who cannot return to their previous employment because of permanent disability are entitled to financial recovery for past, present and future loss of earnings.

Hernia Mesh Lawsuit

With more than one million hernia repairs performed each year in the US, surgeons regularly use surgical mesh to strengthen preservation efforts and reduce the rate of recurrence. It is a woven sheet which is used as either a permanent or temporary support for organs or other tissues during surgery. The mesh is created from both inorganic and biological materials and is used in a variety of surgeries.

Unfortunately, complications have been known to occur, such as chronic pain, infection, tissue adhesion, bowel obstruction, mesh relocation, hernia relapse, perforation, and multiple revision procedures. Victims from around the country are reporting similar issues from hernia mesh products that are currently on the market, including: Ethicon Physiomesh, Ethicon Proceed, Atrium C-QUR, C.R. Bard Kugel, Sepramesh, 3DMax, and PerFix.

Warning signs of these complications include:

  • Pain, swelling, inflammation, or redness at incision area
  • Fever or chills
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Lack of healing at the incision sight

If you notice any of these symptoms or others that seem concerning, seek medical assistance immediately. Several lawsuits are developing against the manufacturers of hernia mesh for contending substandard design along with failure to warn of recognized risks.

Over the course of our investigation, our hernia mesh attorneys have gathered a large amount of information and scientific studies on hernia mesh. We h ave created this webpage in an attempt to educate the public on the dangers of hernia mesh. Below you will find short summaries of many of the hernia mesh products we are currently investigating. At the end of each summary is a link to more information and the scientific studies associated with the specific hernia mesh lawsuit. A brief, general summary for each hernia mesh study is provided. Links to the full study are also provided for further research; however, due to copyright laws, often only the abstract of the study is available publicly.

Why Learning About Hernia Mesh is Important

The FDA continues to quickly approve untested hernia mesh products, which benefits the medical device manufacturers and hurts the general public. When a product is then shown to be defective, severely injuring thousands nationwide, the FDA is slow to take any action. The manufacturers of hernia mesh know of the life-threatening complications their products can cause, but they don’t warn the public or surgeons. Educate yourself on the dangers of hernia mesh and warn those you know.

There are over 100,000 hernia meshes implanted every year in the United States. Many of the most dangerous hernia meshes remain on the market and have not been recalled by the FDA. Bowel obstructions and severe infections are common complications related to hernia mesh.

What is the FDA’s Opinion on Hernia Mesh?

In April of 2016 the FDA put out an article on hernia surgical mesh implants. The following excerpt demonstrates just how out of touch the FDA is with how dangerous current hernia mesh products are.

“Many complications related to hernia repair with surgical mesh that have been reported to the FDA have been associated with recalled mesh products that are no longer on the market. Pain, infection, recurrence, adhesion, obstruction, and perforation are the most common complications associated with recalled mesh. In the FDA’s analysis of medical adverse event reports to the FDA, recalled mesh products were the main cause of bowel perforation and obstruction complications.”

Just one month later, the manufacturer of the Physiomesh, Ethicon a subsidiary of Johnson and Johnson, removed the hernia mesh due to high rates of complications. Currently, the FDA’s website still has no information on the Physiomesh recall. Ethicon continues to deny that the Physiomesh was subject to a hernia mesh recall, but does admit that they withdrew the product from the market. To date, there have been very few hernia mesh products actually recalled. The majority of complaints that our hernia mesh lawyers receive are on products that have not yet been recalled, or have simply been “pulled from the market.”

Is the FDA Turning a Blind Eye to the Complications Caused by Defective Hernia Meshes?

It seems like an outrageous proposition, until you read some of the adverse event reports that physicians and medical device sales representatives have reported to the FDA. Repeatedly, the FDA has been alerted to various defects related to specific hernia meshes that are resulting in life-changing complications, yet no action has been taken.

 

To highlight how absurd it is that the FDA hasn’t taken action on various hernia mesh products, we gave created a Parietex ProGrip lawsuit page and a Parietex Composite lawsuit page. Both pages highlight FDA adverse event reports that should have made it obvious to the FDA why patients were experiencing specific complications with certain hernia mesh products. Shortly after the two pages went live, the FDA’s entire online adverse event database went down. We’re just getting started though. Now that the FDA’s online adverse event database is back up, we will be making similar updates to every hernia mesh subpage

Why Does Hernia Mesh Cause So Many Complications?

Microscopic view of polypropylene used to make hernia mesh.
Polypropylene before implantation

What causes the complications can vary depending on the hernia mesh product. Many hernia mesh products contain a type of plastic known as polypropylene, the same material that is used to make many types of pelvic mesh and bladder slings. Polypropylene is also used to make a wide variety of non-medical devices, such as fishing line and soda bottles. Polypropylene is utilized to make so many commercial products for one main reason, it’s dirt cheap. Here is a Polypropylene Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for a type of polypropylene used in many hernia mesh products. The MSDS notes “Prohibited Uses: Applications involving permanent implantation into the body.” However, the manufacturers of many hernia mesh products continue to use polypropylene and deny that polypropylene degrades and contracts.

Should Hernia Mesh Ever Be Used?

Yes, there are times when mesh needs to be utilized to repair a hernia. The larger a hernia is, the more likely a mesh is needed. If a mesh is required to repair the hernia, there are more than 50 different hernia mesh products to choose from. Various manufacturers utilize a wide range of materials to make their hernia meshes. These materials range from plastics to gels to pig skins. Later in this article, we will cover some of the most dangerous types of hernia mesh. Additionally, certain hernias are easier to fix without using mesh. Inguinal hernias are typically smaller and can be repaired without mesh by a skilled surgeon. The unnecessary use of hernia mesh to repair inguinal hernias has resulted in thousands of patients developing debilitating pain.

Alternatives to Hernia Mesh

Long before hernia mesh was utilized to repair hernias, surgeons used the shouldice technique to repair hernias. The shouldice technique originated from the Shouldice Hospital in Ontario, Canada, where the technique is still favored to this day. For over 70 years, the Shouldice Hospital has maintained a success rate of 99.5% on primary inguinal hernia repairs. In most cases, general anesthesia is not even necessary to perform the shouldice repair. Typically local anesthetics, pain medication, sutures and a sedative is all that is required. Not having to rely on general anesthesia greatly reduces the risk associated with any surgery. It is time for the surgeons in the United States to start learning the Shouldice technique again while in residency.

When Should Hernia Mesh Never Be Used?

Smaller hernias, such as hernias caused by laparoscopic surgery, don’t require mesh to repair. Small hernias can easily be repaired with sutures by an experienced surgeon. The difficulty with hernias is they are very difficult to permanently repair. There is a high rate of hernia recurrence, both with sutures and with mesh. When sutures fail and the hernia comes back, the surgeon can usually try to stitch the hernia back up. When a mesh fails and the hernia comes back, many severe complications can occur. Also, the hernia is usually much larger after mesh failure. Abdominal tissue and muscle typically adheres to the mesh and must be removed with it.

Types of Hernias

  • Incisional: At an old surgical incision.
  • Umbilical: Near the belly button.
  • Inguinal: Groin.
  • Femoral: High in the thigh.
  • Recurrent: Previous hernia site.
  • Bilateral: Both left and right sides

How do the Manufacturers Convince Surgeons to Use Hernia Mesh?

The manufacturers of hernia mesh products funded studies to demonstrate that there was a lower rate of hernia recurrence when hernia mesh was utilized. These studies were lacking in many ways, such as the length of time that patients were monitored after mesh implantation and what were considered “normal complications.” Our hernia mesh attorneys frequently talk to victims that were implanted with mesh 10 or 15 years ago and have just recently suffered from the mesh eroding into their bowels. Hernia recurrences and complications that happen 10 years later aren’t captured by the studies.

Hernia meshes being investigated by the Hollis Law Firm

How Bad are Hernia Mesh Complications?

Unlike sutures, which have relatively few and minor possible complications, hernia mesh frequently causes life-threatening complications. Hernia mesh can erode into the bowel, requiring multiple additional surgeries, weeks of hospitalization, partial bowel removal, colostomies, and more. The mesh failure frequently causes patients to experience a systemic infection. Our hernia mesh lawyers have also recently observed high rates of dental infections associated with mesh failure. Many victims report all of their teeth suddenly rotting out. Even if there is a slightly lower rate of hernia recurrence when mesh is used, it doesn’t justify the risk of life-threatening complications.

Most Recent Recall

The most recent hernia mesh recall was made in May 2016 when Johnson & Johnson subordinate, Ethicon, issued an urgent safety notice recalling all Physiomesh. The company cautioned that two autonomous registries revealed a greater rate of hernia recurrence and reoperations for Physiomesh when compared to other similar mesh products. However, please note that hernia mesh litigations are not restricted to recalled products. Our attorneys are correspondingly reviewing mesh implants that are still being used in medical practice.

If you are unsure of the mesh product that was used in your procedure and have further questions about recovery, please contact your surgeon or the practice at which your surgery was performed to obtain the information from your medical records.

Hernia Mesh Injuries and Complications

Hernia mesh is used to repair both ventral hernias and inguinal hernias. Various injuries and complications can occur depending on what part of the body the mesh is placed. A coated hernia mesh is also more likely to cause injuries such as infection than a non-coated hernia mesh. The following is a list of the array of complications our hernia mesh lawyers have observed:

  • Infection, including sepsis. An infected hernia mesh almost always requires removal.
  • Adhesions form to connect the bowel to the hernia mesh. Adhesions frequently form when ventral hernias are repaired with a coated mesh.
  • Bowel Obstruction caused by adhesion formation. Evidenced by a change in bowel habits or the inability to defecate.
  • Abdominal Pain is a sign of possible adhesion formation, a bowel obstruction, infection, or nerve damage.
  • Rashes are commonly observed in association with hernia meshes such as the C-Qur V-Patch and Ventralex ST.
  • Leg, Groin, and Testicular Pain are all common to inguinal hernias repaired with mesh. This pain can be debilitating.
  • Pain with Sex (Dyspareunia) caused from the mesh used to repair an inguinal hernia attaching to the spermatic cord.
  • Testicle Removal may be necessary if the mesh erodes far enough into the spermatic cord.
  • Diarrhea can be an early symptom of the mesh attaching to the bowel.
  • Constipation can be a sign of a bowel obstruction. You should consult a doctor if your constipation persist for several days.
  • Nausea can be an additional sign of adhesions to the bowel and stomach.
  • Seroma is a fluid capsule surrounding the mesh. Seromas can be present with and without infection.
  • Fistula. An abnormal tunnel between two structures. Our attorneys observe many fistulas connecting to the bowel, which are associated with infections.
  • Dental Problems. Our lawyers have observed a large number of clients who have lost their teeth after a hernia mesh infection.
  • Autoimmune Disorders. An alarming number of our clients have developed autoimmune disorders after being implanted with a pelvic or hernia mesh.
  • Neurological Changes. Several of our clients that have been implanted with the same type of mesh have been diagnosed with unexplained neurological changes on a CT scan.
  • Severe Headache. Typically a sign of a larger problem, such as an infection.
  • Fever. Associated with both an autoimmune response to the mesh and infection.
  • Renal Failure has been observed in those implanted with large coated meshes. The coatings are absorbable and put a great deal of strain on the kidneys.
  • Liver Abnormalities have also been documented in those implanted with coated hernia meshes. The liver is also responsible for cleansing the body.
  • Joint Aches and Pain can be caused by increased systemic inflammation due to infection and an autoimmune reaction to the mesh.
  • Abnormal Sweating can be related to an autoimmune response or to an infection.
  • Meshoma is the migration, contracture, or bunching-up of an artificial mesh. Meshomas become hard, tumor-like bodies.

Too Many Lawyers and Surgeons Rely on Out of Date Hernia Mesh Studies

Polypropylene can cause damage to the surface of any organ it is touching. Old literature and scientific studies found that polypropylene was safe for hernia repair, and only caused severe complications when used as a pelvic mesh. This is why most attorneys have, and still refuse to take hernia mesh cases. The old literature and scientific studies are no longer valid though. Over time, surgeons began to insert and secure hernia mesh via laparoscopic procedures. When a hernia is repaired with mesh laparoscopically, some surgeons insert the mesh deeper into the abdominal cavity, which causes the mesh to come in contact with the bowel. When polypropylene comes in direct contact with the bowels, severe complications typically arise. Due to the now widespread utilization of laparoscopic intraperitoneal hernia repair with mesh, the old scientific studies are no longer valid.

We are currently accepting hernia mesh cases

Since 2005, over a dozen hernia meshes have been recalled for varying reasons. Some of the recalls have been the result of mislabeling of packaging documentation, some recalls have been the result of the meshes being made of counterfeit materials, while other recalls have been the result of design/manufacture defects in the underlying products. In addition, there are hernia meshes that have not been recalled that may be defectively designed and are the source of our clients’ injuries.

We are not limiting our investigation of these dangerous products to just the Physiomesh, TIGR, and C-Qur devices – there are several other types of hernia meshes used between 2003 and 2017 that we are preparing for litigation. If you have experienced problems with your hernia mesh, particularly when the hernia mesh was implanted after 2008, contact us immediately for a free evaluation, even if other attorneys have said they cannot help you. On July 19, 2013, Atrium issued a Class II recall for nearly 100,000 units of it’s C-Qur Mesh — because the coating could peel off and stick inside the package when exposed to heat and moisture. Atrium terminated its recall in March of 2016.

On May 25, 2016 Ethicon initiated a voluntary, global product recall of the Ethicon Physiomesh due to requests from Ethicon’s own Medical Safety Team. Unpublished data from two large independent hernia registries (Herniamed German Registry and Danish Hernia Database-DHDB) revealed higher than average recurrence/reoperation rates after laparoscopic ventral hernia repair using the Ethicon Physiomesh when compared to similar products on the market. Ethicon believes the issue to be a multifactorial issue but as of yet has not been able to characterize the exact cause of the product’s defect. The company indicates they will not be returning the Physiomesh to the global market.

On July 19, 2016 Novus Scientific issued a Class II recall for its TIGR mesh instructing surgeons to discontinue using the product for the repair of direct inguinal hernias and for repair of hernias that require permanent support.

Many patients implanted with the defective hernia meshes have undergone additional hernia repair surgeries and have experienced a variety of side effects including recurrence of hernia, severe pain, adhesion, infections, intestinal blockage and other complications. If you or someone you love were among those who experienced hernia recurrence or additional surgery as a result of their defective hernia mesh, you may be eligible for compensation.

Composix Kugel Hernia Mesh

Composix Kugel

Composix Kugel LogoThe Composix Kugel hernia mesh was one of first and most well known hernia meshes to be recalled. C.R. Bard recalled several lots of the Composix Kugel hernia patch in 2005, 2006 and 2007. The Composix Kugel hernia mesh patch has a ring in the middle of the mesh to help it keep it’s shape. Multiple lots of the Composix Kugel hernia mesh were recalled due to a large number of reported ring breaks. Many patients have suffered bowel perforations as a result of the inner ring of the Composix Kugel hernia patch breaking. Davol only recalled limited lots of the Compoxix Kugel, claiming that certain lots had defective rings. The Composix Kugel is made with a polypropylene base and a layer of ePTFE, resulting in a material mismatch. As the ePTFe and polypropylene shrink at different speeds, the Composix Kugel can deform and the ring can break. For more information on the Composix Kugel hernia patch, please visit our Composix Kugel hernia patch lawsuit page.

3DMax Hernia Mesh with torn edges. Made by Bard Davol.

3DMax LogoThe 3DMaxis a bare heavy-weight polypropylene mesh used to treat inguinal hernias. In 2008, Bard released a light-weight version of the 3DMax called the 3DMax light. Patients nationwide have experienced severe, debilitating pain after being implanted with the Bard 3DMax mesh. The 3DMax mesh can erode through soft tissue and then attach to the spermatic cord in men, causing severe sexual dysfunction and testicle pain. Once the mesh is attached to the spermatic cord, there is a risk of losing the testicle when removing the mesh. The 3DMax is curved, and is intended to be implanted without any sutures or tacks. Our hernia mesh attorneys have identified many cases where the Bard 3DMax has folded over upon itself and migrated inside the patient. As can be seen in the picture, the outer sealed edge of the 3DMax also has a tendency to easily break and tear. The sealed edge is intended to help the 3DMax maintain its shape. Bard’s 3DMax simply is not fit for permanent, life-long human implantation. Learn more at our Bard 3DMax Lawsuit page.

PerFix Plug

PerFix Plug

PerFix Plug LogoThe PerFix Plug is a bare polypropylene mesh used to treat inguinal hernias. The PerFix Plug looks like a shuttlecock. The PerFix Plug also includes an option polypropylene onlay patch. Bard began marketing the PerFix Plug in 1992. After selling the PerFix Plug for 17 years, Bard finally asked the FDA for 510(k) clearance regarding the PerFix Plug. The PerFix Plug frequently erodes and migrates throughout the patient. Injuries associated with the PerFix Plug can take years to decades to manifest and include mesh migration resulting in organ perforation and severe pain, due to the cone tip of the plug acting as a pivot and bearing the greatest pressure. The PerFix Plug became one of the most frequently implanted hernia meshes in the world, with more than 5 million implants worldwide.The PerFix Plug is another hernia mesh that has caused many men to loose a testicle. The PerFix Plug is not necessary to repair an inguinal hernia. Learn more at our Bard PerFix Plug Lawsuit page.

Proceed Hernia Mesh

Proceed Hernia Mesh LawsuitProceed Hernia Mesh LogoThe Proceedhernia mesh came to market in 2003. The Proceed is a light-weight hernia mesh with an Oxidized Regenerated Cellulose (ORC) fabric covering the polypropylene. The cellulose is adhered to the polypropylene with polydioxanone (PDS). Ethicon touts the Proceed’s barrier as supporting “safe and comfortable healing.” Ethicon has previously issued limited recalls on the Proceed hernia mesh, because of the cellulose layer separating from the polypropylene and increasing the risk of bowel complications. The Proceed hernia mesh continues to delaminate and should be permanently recalled. Physicians have submitted 100’s of adverse event reports to the FDA and Johnson & Johnson regarding the Proceed hernia mesh being defective and injuring patients. For more information on Proceed and to see the adverse event reports yourself, please visit our Proceed Lawsuit page.

Physiomesh

Physiomesh Hernia Mesh by Ethicon and Johnson & Johnson

Physiomesh LogoThe Physiomesh was withdrawn from the market in May of 2016. Ethicon maintains that they did not recall the Physiomesh. The Physiomesh was a composite hernia mesh. Multiple studies revealed that Ethicon’s Physiomesh had high rates of complications, including subsequent hernias and additional surgeries. Ethicon admitted that they’re unable to determine why the Physiomesh is defective, or how to decrease complications for those who had a Physiomesh implanted. Part of the problem was likely that the Physiomesh had a coating on each side of the mesh. The coating prevented the Physiomesh from properly incorporating with the host tissue. Prior to removing (not recalling) the Physiomesh from the market, Ethicon created a new hernia mesh called Physiomesh Open. For more please visit our page.

Prolene Hernia System

 

Prolene Hernia SystemProlene Hernia System Logo

The Prolene Hernia System (PHS) was introduced to the market in 1997. The Prolene Hernia System is similar to polypropylene mesh plugs with a polypropylene onlay. In fact, the Prolene Hernia System cites Bard’s Perfix plug as a predicate device. Our hernia mesh lawyers have observed similar complications associated with the Prolene Hernia System and the Perfix plug. The Prolene Hernia System utilizes heavy-weight polypropylene. In 2007, Ethicon came out with the Ultrapro Hernia System, a light-weight version of the Prolene Hernia System. Light-weight polypropylene was believed to cause less complications than heavy-weight polypropylene. Injuries associated with the PHS include debilitating pain, nerve damage, and sexual dysfunction necessitating testicle removal. As more information becomes available we will update our Prolene Hernia System Lawsuit page.

Atrium – Maquet – Getinge Group

C-Qur Hernia Mesh

CQur VPatch

C-Qur Hernia Mesh LogoThe C-Qur is a composite hernia mesh that came to market in 2006, and was initially marketed by Atrium Medical Corporation. Maquet, a subsidiary of the Getinge Group, acquired Atriumin 2011 and now manufactures the C-Qur hernia mesh. The FDA has issued several warnings letters and even sued Atrium Medical Corporation for violations. Recently, the FDA shut down one of Atrium’s facilities that manufactured the C-Qur hernia mesh. Atrium has only issued recalls on the C-Qur’s packaging, not on the actual C-Qur hernia mesh itself.

The C-Qur hernia mesh has an Omega-3 Fatty Acid coating that causes severe allergic reactions. The C-Qur hernia mesh is also associated with life-threatening systemic infections. Removing the C-Qur mesh is extremely difficult and can result in further injury. The C-Qur hernia mesh remains on the market, even as lawsuits continue to mount. Our hernia mesh recall lawyers continue to receive frequent complaints related to the C-Qur hernia mesh. For more information, please visit our Atrium C-Qur Hernia Mesh Lawsuit page.

ProLoop Plug

ProLoopProLoop LogoThe ProLoop is a polypropylene plug mesh intended for inguinal hernia repair. The ProLoop came to market around the early 2000’s. The exact date is unclear though, because there isn’t a 510(k) available on the FDA’s website for the ProLoop during this time frame. Atrium cribbed off of Bard’s PerFix Plug when designing the ProLoop. Like Bard’s PerFix Plug, the attorneys at the Hollis Law Firm believe that Atrium utilizes non-medical grade polypropylene to make the ProLoop. While the PerFix Plug looks shuttlecock, the ProLoop resembles a wad of fishing line. The ProLoop is manufactured under the same unsanitary conditions as Atrium’s C-Qur mesh. Our hernia mesh attorneys also believe that Atrium utilizes non-medical grade polypropylene to create the ProLoop. Chronic pain, high recurrence rates, and infections have been associated with Atrium’s ProLoop. The ProLoop has never been recalled and remains on the market. For more information, please visit our Atrium ProLoop Hernia Mesh Lawsuit page.

Covidien – Medtronic

Parietex

Covidien's Parietex Polyester Hernia Mesh

Parietex Hernia Mesh LogoThe Parietex hernia mesh was Covidien’s first polyester hernia mesh. The Parietex originally came to the market in 1999 as a heavy-weight polyester mesh. The original Parietex caused many problems similar to polypropylene based hernia meshes, such as adhesions, infections, and bowel complications. Like polypropylene, polyester also shrinks and contracts to a significant degree after it is implanted in the body. As the Parietex contracts, tension increases and the mesh has a tendency to tear where the tacks or sutures were used to secure it. Severe pain and a recurrence of the hernia typically result when the Parietex mesh rips apart. After the Parietex detaches it can migrate to other parts of the body. For more information visit our Parietex Lawsuit page.

Parietex Composite Mesh

Polyester hernia mesh with a film coating

Parietex Composite Hernia Mesh LogoThe Parietex Composite (PCO) mesh is composed of a polyester base with a resorbable collagen barrier. The resorbable collagen barrier is intended to prevent the polyester base from adhering to the patient’s bowel. Covidien touts the Parietex as a unique material that “works with the body’s natural systems.” However, many of our clients would disagree. The collagen layer of the Parietex Composite hernia mesh is very thin and delicate. The collagen layer disappears quickly after implantation and does little to nothing to protect the bowel and underlying organs from the polyester base. Recently, Covidien came out with the Parietex Optimized Composite Mesh in an attempt to fix the problems associated with the collagen layer. The hernia mesh lawyers at the Hollis Law Firm frequently see severe adhesions, bowel obstructions, and infections associated with the Parietex Composite hernia mesh. Additionally, like the original Parietex, the Parietex Composite tears easily on sutures or tacks as it begins to contract post implantation. Learn more at our Parietex Composite Lawsuit page.

Parietex ProGrip / Parietex Plug and Patch System

Parietex ProGrip hernia mesh by Covidien

Parietex ProGrip LogoThe Parietex ProGrip and the Parietex Plug and Patch System are made from polyester weaved together with a partially semi-resorbable polylactic acid (PLA) layer. The Parietex ProGrip is a “self-fixating” mesh because it has thousands of hooks that are intended to keep the mesh in place. However, the thousands of hooks also cause patients to experience severe pain and make the hernia mesh nearly impossible to remove. When the Parietex ProGrip fails and complications result, multiple surgeries are usually required to remove the underlying problem: the defective Parietex ProGrip hernia mesh. Covidien was recently acquired by Medtronic for nearly $50 billion. Covidien is also one of many defendant mesh manufacturers in the pelvic mesh litigation. Learn more at our page.

Gore

DualMesh

Both sides of the DualMesh

Label for Gore's DualMesh

Gore’s DualMesh came to the market in 1995, and is rarely used today. However, victims nationwide continue to be injured by latent infections due to Gore’s DualMesh. Unlike the above hernia meshes, the DualMesh is made entirely out of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE). Once the DualMesh becomes infected, the ePTFE begins to degrade. As the DualMesh degrades, pockets form in the ePTFE which are ideal for bacteria to thrive. Infections related to the DualMesh typically require numerous surgeries to remove the failed DualMesh and clear the infection. Learn more at our DualMesh Lawsuit page.

Hernia mesh lawsuits are already being filed

On April 1, 2016 the first Ethicon Physiomesh lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois (Matthew Huff v. Ethicon, Inc.). The lawsuit was filed by a man from Illinois who was treated for an abdominal hernia in 2013. His surgeon implanted Ethicon Physiomesh to reinforce his abdominal wall. By July 2015, he started experiencing severe abdominal pain, fever, nausea, chills, and skin redness. He went to the hospital and was diagnosed with two abscesses and an intestinal fistula. Mr. Huff required surgery to clean out the abscesses as well as the placement of a V.A.C. Even after the infection was treated, he has been left with serious and lingering health complications. His trial date has been set for January 22, 2018 before Judge J. Phil Gilbert.

On September 22, 2016 another lawsuit was filed by a woman from Florida who required surgery to remove Physiomesh that grew into her intestines and caused serious health problem. The lawsuit claims, “Due to defective design, defective manufacturing, defective marketing, and negligence by Defendants, the Product has caused Joanne Quinn severe and permanent bodily injuries and significant mental and physical pain and suffering, and economic loss.”

On December 8, 2016 the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) consolidated the Atrium C-Qur litigation into the United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire. Twenty-one lawsuits involving the Atrium C-Qur hernia mesh pending in varying federal courts across the country were consolidated in the District of New Hampshire. It should be noted that this IS NOT class action litigation – the twenty-one individual lawsuits will stand on their own but they will all be litigated in the one federal court in New Hampshire before the Honorable Landya McCafferty. The Initial Case Management Conference in that litigation took place on February 24, 2017.

Scientific Articles on Hernia Mesh

The below articles are on hernia mesh in general. Each hernia mesh subpage also contains additional case specific scientific articles.

November 2017: Surveillance of Surgical Meshes in Ventral Hernias and Unpredictability of Their History.

The authors explain that “mesh-related visceral complications are hardly considered, although they have much more significant adverse effects on the patient, when compared with common complications following abdominal hernia repair, and they require a challenging surgery in the majority of cases.” The authors note that “mesh manufacturers claim their meshes are visceral compatible, mostly on the basis of the results of animal studies, but it is not true. No material is inert, even the supposed viscera-friendly meshes.” The authors opine that “tissue reactions occur as a result of a chemical process related to the degradation of coated meshes.”

September 2017: The Importance of Registries in the Postmarketing Surveillance of Surgical Meshes.

The studies objective was to assess the role of registries in the postmarketing surveillance of surgical meshes, because surgical meshes do not require premarket clearance by clinical studies. The authors concluded that “registries tend to be more suitable for long-term evaluation of surgical meshes for all patients operated on with this medical device… therefore, based on the new marketing authorization procedures, before surgical meshes are first placed on the market in the future, it is likely that [randomized controlled trials] will be carried out, whereas registry studies will be used to collect clinical data for postmarketing surveillance of surgical meshes.”

June 2017: In Vitro Study on the Deterioration of Polypropylene Hernia Repair Meshes.

The authors investigated how hernia meshes change once they have been implanted. The authors note that “oxidative stress at the site of implantation causes polymeric implants to lose their structural and mechanical integrity; crystallinity and molecular weight may also change. This can result in the mechanical stiffening and/or shrinkage of the mesh, which may ultimately lead to the development of postoperative chronic pain.” The authors conclude that their “results are also in agreement with those obtained for the explanted PP hernia repair meshes that also demonstrated cracks, extrusion lines and holes on the surface.”

August 2016: Oral, Intestinal, and Skin Bacteria in Ventral Hernia Mesh Implants.

36 patients with failed hernia mesh were studied. All participants were found to have gingivitis and 33% had infected gums and teeth. Oral bacteria was discovered on 43% of explanted hernia mesh. The study discusses the difficulty in knowing the real rate of hernia mesh infections, due to lack of standardized criteria to define infection, lack of follow-up exams, and lack of intervention when complications arise. It notes that hernia mesh infection is the most common reason for mesh removal.

June 2016: Sepramesh and Postoperative Peritoneal Adhesions in a Rat Model.

The study notes that “postoperative peritoneal adhesions occurred at the extremities of the mesh, where there was close contact between the polypropylene and viscera, or where the fixation suture was placed.”

August 2015: Degradation of Polypropylene in Vivo: A Microscopic Analysis of Meshes Explanted From Patients.

164 explanted polypropylene meshes were reviewed. 162 of the explants exhibited signs of degradation. The only two hernia meshes to not exhibit signs of degradation had only been implanted for 3 and 10 months. The authors note that “polypropylene degradation is likely mediated by the foreign body reaction, which is ongoing until the device is removed. Our observations of adherent macrophages on the polypropylene surface are consistent with the previous studies reporting chronic inflammation in explanted polypropylene mesh several years after implantation.” The authors also explain the clinical importance “of degradation is the potential for bacterial colonization of the fissures within the degraded material. It is known that irregularities of polymer surface promote bacterial adherence.”

768 patients underwent hernia repair. 10% experienced a hernia mesh infection. 33% of patients with a preoperative MRSA+ infection experienced a hernia mesh infection.

May 2014: Comparison of Outcomes of Synthetic Mesh vs Suture Repair of Elective Primary Ventral Herniorrhaphy: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

637 hernia mesh repairs and 1145 suture repairs were compared. Hernia mesh repair was associated with a slightly lower rate of recurrence, but a higher rate of severe complications. The authors admit that “further high-quality studies are necessary to determine whether suture or mesh repair leads to improved outcomes for primary ventral hernias.”

November 2013: Coated Meshes for Hernia Repair Provide Comparable Intraperitoneal Adhesion Prevention.

Uncoated polypropylene was compared to various types of coated polypropylene placed intraperitonally via laparoscopic procedure. The uncoated polypropylene hernia mesh resulted in significantly more adhesions.

October 2013: Biologic Meshes are Not Superior to Synthetic Meshes in Ventral Hernia Repair: An Experimental Study with Long-Term Follow-Up Evaluation

The study notes that “In laparoscopic incisional hernia repair, direct contact between the prosthesis and the abdominal viscera is inevitable, which may lead to an inflammatory reaction resulting in abdominal adhesion formation.” The authors advise additional research is necessary, and to be wary of short-term experimental results on laparoscopically placed hernia mesh.

The authors are concerned about using polypropylene mesh (PPM) for laparoscopic hernia repair. They question if paying 15-20 times more for a composite mesh is worth it. The study notes “Complications of intraperitoneal PPM (adhesions, infection, intestinal fistulization, sinus formation, seroma and recurrence) can occur with the newer mesh also. There is no statistically significant difference in the incidence of these complications between these meshes.”

July 2012: Post-Implantation Alterations of Polypropylene in the Human.

The author concludes that polypropylene “alters in vivo after implantation. It undergoes various processes that lead to degradation, including oxidation, cross-linking, depolymerization and embrittlement. These processes result in various degrees of degradation, and the loss of mechanical and physical properties. PP mesh is not inert.”

August 2012: Ventral Hernia Repair with Synthetic, Composite, and Biologic Mesh: Characteristics, Indications, and Infection Profile.

The study notes that polypropylene “is unsuitable for intra-abdominal placement because of its tendency to induce bowel adhesions.”

August 2011:  Complications of Mesh Devices for Intraperitoneal Umbilical Hernia Repair: A Word of Caution.

The surgeons note experiencing serious complications in several patients implanted with a composite mesh. Injuries included small bowel resections and mesh removal. The study notes “We think that, if preperitoneal deployment of such mesh devices is possible, this should be the preferred position, notwithstanding the fact that these meshes have a dual layer. There is a complete lack of convincing data on these mesh devices in the medical literature. No long-term data have been published, and, for three of the four mesh devices available, no publications on their use in humans were found.”

The study discusses the need for a better identification, classification and reporting systems for hernia mesh infections. It notes part of the difficulty is that hernia mesh implants have a tendency to remain dormant for long periods of time. It can take years before a hernia mesh infection is identified.

January 2010: Oral Biofilms: Emerging Concepts in Microbial Ecology.

The overall health and biology of an individual is closely linked to which oral biofilms develop.

June 2009: The Problem of Mesh Shrinkage in Laparoscopic Incisional Hernia Repair

Laparoscopic hernia repair requires expanding the abdomen with approximately 3 liters of gas. The surface area of the abdominal wall is stretched by about 80% during laparoscopic repair. Surgeons must anticipate significant mesh shrinkage in laparoscopic hernia repair. Mesh shrinkage remains one of the unsolved problems of laparoscopic incisional hernia repair.

How Does the FDA Learn About Hernia Mesh Complications?

If a hernia mesh fails within a few years and the same surgeon that implanted the mesh removes the mesh, the surgeon will sometimes report the complication to the manufacturer. It is then the manufacturers duty to determine if the complication warrants notifying the FDA. Through our investigations, our hernia mesh lawyers have uncovered that many manufacturers fail to report adverse events related to hernia mesh to the FDA. Surgeons will also occasionally file adverse event reports directly to the FDA, but the process is very time consuming. As a result, the FDA is only aware of a very small percentage of total hernia mesh complications. The manufacturers of hernia mesh then cite to low rates of hernia mesh complications reported to the FDA as evidence that hernia mesh is safe!

Are There Other Ways to Report Hernia Mesh Complications to the FDA?

If you have suffered hernia mesh complications, you can alert the FDA through a MedWatch Report. You can also alert the FDA by filing a hernia mesh lawsuit against the manufacturer of the mesh. When a manufacturer is notified of a pending hernia mesh lawsuit, the manufacturer must report the basis of the hernia mesh lawsuit to the FDA. Medical device companies are allowed too much discretion on if they have to notify the FDA when a surgeon reports a hernia mesh adverse event. The medical device companies do not have discretion on reporting a hernia mesh lawsuit to the FDA. The companies must report every single hernia mesh lawsuit to the FDA.

Hernia mesh use and FDA approval

There are many types of hernias: inguinal hernia, femoral hernia (very rare), umbilical hernia, incisional hernia (from previous surgeries), epigastric hernia, ventral (abdominal wall) hernia, hiatal hernia. Mesh can be used in an attempt to repair most types of hernias.

The Ethicon Physiomesh design utilizes polypropylene to manufacture the base layer of the Physiomesh. Polypropylene is the same material that Ethicon utilized to make their transvaginal mesh and bladder slings. Ethicon has faced thousands of lawsuits over its transvaginal mesh and bladder slings made from polypropylene. Ethicon added an absorbable film coating to each side of the polypropylene to create the Physiomesh. Ethicon’s Physiomesh was approved for market in the United States in April 2010. The FDA approved it with a 510(k) application, allowing it on the market without new safety studies by claiming it was similar to other types of hernia mesh on the market such as the Proceed hernia patch, which is also manufactured by Ethicon. This allowed Ethicon Physiomesh to skip rigorous pre-market research and studies.

The Atrium C-Qur mesh was approved for market in the United States in 2005. Like Ethicon’s Physiomesh, the C-Qur was approved via the 510(k) application process, foregoing clinical trials. Atrium was cited by the FDA in 2012 for ignoring reports of product contamination related to the C-Qur mesh and production was temporarily halted. A 2013 clinical trial of the Atrium C-Qur V-Patch was cut short due to high infection rates. Novus Scientific received 510(k) approval of the TIGR mesh in 2009 before being recalled in 2016. Unfortunately, the recall came too late for thousands of individuals implanted with the device.
