A hernia occurs when an internal organ pushes through the muscle that is designed to contain it. Surgical meshes can help individuals with hernias support their unsound or deteriorated muscles. Although hernia repair surgery is one of the most commonly performed procedures across the country, it is not without risks.
Faulty hernia meshes can break down, migrate or contract, affecting the tissue that is secured to the mesh and adjacent tissues. Repairing the damage is expensive and painful. This invasive surgery can further compromise the health of an already weakened individual.
Symptoms related to the failure of the hernia mesh implant repair include the following:
- Internal bleeding
- Tissue erosion at the repair site
- Recurrence of hernia at the surgery site
