A hernia occurs when part of an organ pushes through a wall of muscle or other tissue that normally holds it in place. Hernias can also occur when an organ becomes displaced. Common examples of hernia include abdominal wall hernia and hernias of the diaphragm.
Abdominal hernias usually occur when the small intestine, muscle tissue or belly button (umbilicus) pushes through a weakened area of the abdominal wall. Diaphragm hernias occur when part of the stomach or esophagus push through the diaphragm into the chest cavity. No matter what type of hernia a person has, symptoms can cause extreme pain, chronic health conditions, abdominal masses and swelling.
Most types of hernia will require surgical treatment. In addition, most surgeons will patch the torn area with hernia mesh because it is a pliable medical material. Oftentimes medical mesh products include synthetic or animal-derived materials.
Risks Associated with Hernia Mesh
Today, hernia mesh products inserted during surgery have the expectation of remaining indefinitely inside a patient. Which makes product safety a high priority for hernia mesh manufacturers so that they reduce any risk of complications with patients.
However, manufacturers do not always produce safe medical products. Their neglect can then result in a patient suffering prolonged emotional and physical trauma from additional treatments and surgeries needed to remove and/or replace a defective mesh product.
Furthermore, additional medical care and treatments often equate to higher medical bills and longer periods of recovery.
