We are now investigating all hernia mesh claims, even if you don't know what hernia mesh was implanted. Learn more about the most dangerous types of hernia mesh. Severe hernia mesh complications are occurring even with hernia meshes that have not been recalled.
The Proceed hernia mesh is a light-weight polypropylene mesh with a resorbable Oxidized Regenerated Cellulose (ORC) fabric attached to the polypropylene. The cellulose is bonded to the polypropylene with polydioxanone (PDS). Johnson & Johnson and Ethicon previously recalled lots of the Proceed mesh, because of the cellulose layer delaminated from the underlying polypropylene. The Proceed's ORC layer is ineffective and frequently results in severe bowel injuries.
Ethicon's Physiomesh was developed for hernia repair. Physiomesh was recalled from the global market in 2016, because of high rates of complications. Complications of Physiomesh include hernia recurrence and additional surgeries. The Hollis Law Firm represents those who have experienced complications with Physiomesh.
The C-Qur hernia mesh was developed by Atrium Medical Corporation to be utilized during hernia repairs. The C-Qur hernia mesh has an Omega 3 fatty acid layer that dissolves in the patients body over several months to years. The Hollis Law Firm represents clients in lawsuits who have experienced severe complications after being implanted with the C-Qur hernia mesh. Lawsuits regarding the C-Qur hernia mesh include infections, organ perforation, rejection, additional surgeries, pain and systemic skin rashes.
Covidien manufactures the Parietex hernia mesh out of polyester, which is weak and flimsy. The polyester of the Parietex also causes severe, chronic inflammation after implantation. Complications such as bowel obstructions are frequently caused by the Parietex hernia mesh. Additionally, the Parietex has a tendency to tear away from the sutures and tacks that secure it in place.
Covidien later decided to attach a thin collagen layer to the Parietex, creating the Parietex Composite (PCO). The thin collagen coating of the Parietex Composite was intended to increases the meshes handling, while also protecting the patient's bowels from the harmful effects of the polyester. Unfortunately, the collagen barrier of Covidien's Parietex Composite does nearly nothing to protect a patient's underlying organs. Life-threatening bowel complications are associated with the Parietex Composite hernia mesh.
Finally, Covidien developed the Parietex ProGrip by adding thousands of micro-grips to the Parietex Composite. These micro-grips are intended to alleviate the need for tacks or sutures, which tear through polyester. However, the micro-grips of the Parietex ProGrip can cause excruciating pain and make the hernia mesh nearly impossible to remove.
The 3DMax hernia mesh lawsuit is against Bard and its subsidiary Davol Inc. The 3DMax is a hernia mesh made from polypropylene. Bard has already faced thousands of lawsuits over its transvaginal mesh and bladder sling products, which are also made from polypropylene. Despite the known risk associated with polypropylene, Bard continues to manufacture the 3DMax with polypropylene.
