Hernia mesh is a loosely woven sheet of flexible mesh used to support weakened or damaged tissue. There are lots of types of hernias, but most happen once an organ or tissue protrudes through a weak spot in the abdominal muscles. This can cause a bulge in the stomach or groin area that burns or clogs. Depending on where the hernia is, it can also cause nausea, nausea, and, occasionally, swelling of the testicles.
There are several hernia mesh complications that have been reported to the FDA have been correlated with remembered mesh products no longer available on the industry. There are lots of physiomesh hernia attorneys now exploring cases of recurring hernias, complications, the need for revision surgery, or death in patients who have received Ethicon's Physiomesh hernia.
These lawyers help patients legally to have compensation if they suffered from hernia mesh complications. Many patients that experienced mesh failure had to undergo revision surgery to remove and replace the mesh.
In one case, the net had migrated to a patient's small intestines, causing an enterocutaneous fistula, also requiring an operation to remove the net in addition to a portion of the patient's small intestines.
If you or a loved one has obtained hernia treatment that comprised Physiomesh and has experienced complications, you might have to hire a physiomesh attorney.
