Why Instances of Surgical Mesh Lawsuit is increasing?

The past few years have seen a sudden surge in the number of surgical mesh lawsuits and there are ample reasons behind this escalation. For the uninitiated, hernia mesh is a surgical device or product that is used for stabilizing abdominal tissues during a repair surgery. In the U.S. alone, this mesh is used at least 800,000 times every year accounting for approximately 90 percent hernia repairs. (Source-https://www.drugdangers.com/hernia-mesh/lawsuit/

While some patients undergo a successful surgery and get their problem solved, a few are not so lucky and develop complications and side effects due to hernia mesh used in their hernia surgery.

The seriousness of these complications is proven by the fact that even the U.S. Food and Drug Administration of FDA had to address the issue. They have taken proactive steps to curb the problem and recalled several mesh products that were responsible for severe complications in patients like, acute pain, recurrent infection, adhesion, perforation, and obstruction.

The prominent reason behind such complications is the mesh-like product made up of synthetic or natural materials. Polypropylene is the main plastic-based material that is used in manufacturing mesh-like devices. This device may get degraded after implantation resulting in complications. Besides being used in hernia repair surgery, this device is also used to correct bladder sling and transvaginal repair surgeries and thousands of medical injury or mesh lawsuits have resulted.

Besides complications mentioned above, there is no dearth of cases where there was a need for additional surgery to remove the defective device, reconstruct or repair damaged tissues, and repair the original hernia. This results in patients being exposed to additional risks and has no choice but to undergo a prolonged recovery period.

Many patients decide to take any action against erring companies and file a mesh lawsuit. Experienced and expert mesh lawyers help them to file the suit and claim for compensation.
