Recall of the Mesh Patch

The mesh patch was manufactured and released as an option for repairing post surgery hernias. The problem is that the makers of the patch were aware of a serious potential malfunction that has resulted in serious injury and even death for patients. At this time, the FDA has issued a full Class One recall for the mesh patch and has pulled the product from the market. There are numerous lawsuits pending.

Hernias are a common health issue that regularly occur after abdominal surgery. The surgery itself weakens the abdominal wall and, as a result, part of the muscle will push through the wall causing a hernia. This condition is extremely painful and requires surgery to repair. The mesh patch was designed for use in this type of surgery and originally released to the market in 2002.

While the original version seemed to work quite well, an updated model was released in 2005 that is larger and supposedly more efficient. The issue is there is a malfunction within the product. The product is designed with a metal ring that is supposed to “spring” into place when implanted into the body of the patient. Instead, what has been happening is the product malfunctions and breaks apart at the joints. Once the ring breaks, it can have serious health implications.

Patients who have suffered through this malfunction have been subjected to:

  • sepsis
  • severe pain
  • bowel and organ perforation
  • damaging fusion of organs
  • even death

Again the FDA has issued a full Class One Recall on the mesh patch, meaning, not only has the product been pulled from the market, but all patients who currently have this product should have it removed as soon as possible.

If you or a loved one have been harmed by the mesh patch, call Schuerger Shunnarah Personal Injury Attorneys today at (833) 692-5038.
