In the U.S., hernia repair is one of the most commonly performed surgeries. In fact, more than a million people undergo this surgical procedure every year. A medical device, referred to as surgical mesh, is often used in hernia repair surgeries in order to ensure additional support to damaged or weakened tissue. People who have had a mesh implanted as part of their hernia repair surgery and have experienced complications may qualify for filing hernia mesh lawsuits.
Symptoms related to 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
