Abdominal Mesh blog
Hernias occur when part of the tissue in the abdominal area, such as the intestines, pushes through a hole or weak area in the connective tissue in the abdomen.
Currently, there are thousands of ongoing lawsuits involving hernia mesh in the United States.
There are several different types of hernias: inguinal, femoral, incisional, ventral, umbilical, and hiatal.
An abdominal mesh is a hernia mesh, a surgical mask, or a transvaginal mesh that is implanted into the abdomen, groin, or stomach area, to support tissue that suffers from function or structural loss. Is most commonly used to repair hernias and patch the peritoneal layer.
One of the reasons that abdominal mesh is used to treat hernias is because it repairs the hernia and dramatically reduces it from having reoccurrence. In areas where there are injuries in the abdominal region, there may be infection, bowel obstruction, and adhesions.
Some of these hernia mesh products have been recalled because of major complications. The recalled hernia meshes include:
- Genitrix Surgical Matrix
- Atrium Medical C_QUR Mesh
- Bard Composix Kugel Hernia Patch
- Ethicon Proceed Surgical Mesh
