Recalled Mesh Products
Medical staff uses surgical mesh to provide additional support in areas of the body where hernias arise. Companies design this hernia mesh using synthetic materials or animal tissue. In the event the mesh is nonabsorbable, it will remain in the body indefinitely as a permanent sort of reinforcement.
Unfortunately, many manufacturers produced a mesh that was not suitable for these types of procedures. A large number of types of mesh implant materials have faced recalls and are subjects of a number of lawsuits. In some instances, medical records document the type of mesh used in the procedure. In other instances, investigation is required to discover the type of mesh used during the surgery.
