Thousands of mesh lawsuits have been filed in recent years as a result of problems with the Ethcion Physiomesh, Atrium C-Qur, Alloderm and Kugel Patch.
Manufacturers of mesh have an obligation to adequately research their products and warn about risks associated with their device. In recent years, a number of specific mesh products have been linked to high rates of complications, including:
- hernia repair failure
- protrusions or movement of the mesh
- internal injuries
- revision surgery to remove the mesh
- other hernia repair complications
