Hernia Mesh Lawsuit

The FDA Ordered Manufacturers to Stop Selling Surgical Mesh for Pelvic Organ Prolapse – Why Not Hernia Mesh Too?

In April 2019, the FDA ordered manufacturers of all remaining surgical mesh products used for pelvic organ prolapse (sometimes known as “transvaginal mesh”) to stop selling and distributing their products in the U.S. immediately. Previously, in 2011, the FDA issued a Safety Communication to warn about potential problems associated with polypropylene mesh used to repair pelvic organ prolapse.

Surgical mesh was used to repair hernias for decades before it was adapted for use in treating pelvic organ prolapse. Despite this, the FDA has not issued similar safety warnings for hernia mesh, even though it is the same type of product.

Many patients are now reporting serious health problems after hernia mesh, ranging from pain to life-threatening infection that required additional surgeries to remove the mesh. At this time, we are working with numerous law firms to help patients who required removal of the following mesh products:

  • Physiomesh (Ethicon)
  • Parietex (Covidien)
  • 3D Max, Composix/EX/Kugel, Kugel, Marlex, Perfix Plug, Sepramesh, Spermatex, Ventralex/ST, Ventrio/ST, Visilex (Bard Davol)
  • C-QUR (Atrium)

If you do not know what hernia mesh product you were implanted with, we still want to talk to you. You may be able to take action. Contact us at no cost to learn your potential legal options.

We Are Working With All Patients Harmed By Hernia Mesh. It’s What We Do.

Our name is a tribute and call to action to American women who stand up every day for their sisters and their families. But just because we’re called “A Case for Women” doesn’t mean we don’t work with men. The truth is we especially need men to stand up, so many were irreparably hurt, and their standing up will play a big part in making this right.

If you or someone you love was hurt by hernia mesh please reach out to us, no matter who or what they are, we need all of us to make an impact!

Hernia Mesh Manufacturers (And Products) Have A Documented History of Problems.

Over the last several years, the FDA has received numerous reports of adverse effects from hernia mesh patients. Despite this, hernia mesh continues to be used in the U.S.

In 2012, the FDA issued a warning letter to Atrium medical, stating that the company failed to address the reported infections associated with their mesh products. Additionally, the FDA stated that Atrium’s sterilization process for the mesh was not adequate.

Then, in 2015, the FDA filed an injection against Atrium that ordered the company to stop distribution and manufacturing of medical devices in the company’s New Hampshire plant. This shut down was in effect until Atrium proved to the FDA that the company was in compliance with certain federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act provisions.

In 2016, two large European hernia mesh registries reported higher than average failure rates for Ethicon’s Physiomesh. Later that same year Ethicon ordered a full market withdrawal of all Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh products.

Problems commonly associated with hernia mesh failure include:

Severe pain

Life-threatening infections

Bowel obstruction

Migration

Organ perforation

Adhesion

Despite the history of problems with hernia mesh products, numerous people are still implanted every year. Patients who needed to have additional surgeries to remove or “fix” the mesh may have the opportunity to take powerful legal action that can help protect others. Contact us to learn more.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today ordered the manufacturers of all remaining surgical mesh products indicated for the transvaginal repair of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) to stop selling and distributing their products in the U.S. immediately. The order is the latest in a series of escalating safety actions related to protecting the health of the thousands of women each year who undergo surgery transvaginally to repair POP.
