Hernia Mesh Attorney

Anthony Quackenbush is a Fort Lauderdale Hernia Mesh Lawyer. A hernia occurs when tissue from an organ moves through the wall of the cavity that holds the organ. When a hernia occurs in the body, frequently a surgery must be performed in order to repair the hernia and prevent the future migration of tissue.

Hernia mesh is a synthetic material used to reinforce muscles and to prevent future migration of tissue after the surgery. The mesh is typically placed over or under the hernia. Staples can be used to hold the mesh in place. When it is placed, the mesh will act as a barrier between the organ and the neighboring muscles.

Nevertheless, hernia mesh usage can result in chronic pain and, oftentimes, infection. If this is the case in your situation, then you may have a hernia mesh case.

Hernia mesh is manufactured by several different manufacturers, including Sofradim Corp., Sofradium Production, S.A.S., Tyco Healthcare Group, LP, United States Surgical Corp., Surgical Solutions Group, Covidien Inc., Covidien Ltd., Covidien plc, Covidien Holding Inc., Covidien LP, Tissue Science Laboratories, Ltd., Medronic USA Inc., and Medronic plc.

Types of Covidien mesh include parietex, parietex composite (PCO), Symbotex, Surgipro, Parietene, Parietene Macroporous, Progrip, Parietex Progrip, Parietex Plug and Patch, and Parietene Progrip. Problems associated with hernia mesh depend on the type of mesh used.

Problems resulting from Covidien Parietex Composite include perforation, infections, dense bowel adhesions and bowel obstructions, pain, mesh failure due to tearing at edges, swelling, and fixation failures.

Lightweight covidien parietex may also cause problems. Lightweight mesh is designed with polyester instead of polypropylene. It also has large pores, a smaller surface area and shrinks less than typical mesh. As a result, it often breaks. This can cause infection and adhesion of the mesh to the neighboring muscles.

Problems associated with Covidien Symbotex Composite include seroma; hematoma; adhesions; extrusions; bowel or skin perforations; recurrence of the hernia (meaning that the mesh fails and tissue begins again to leak from the organ into the surrounding areas; fistula formation; adhesions; infection; inflammation; chronic pain; mucosal or visceral erosion; sensitization; dyspareunia; scarification and contraction; perforations or lacerations of vessels, nerves, bladder, bowel, rectum; vaginal wall prolapse; and allergic reactions. This South Florida Hernia Mesh Lawyer handles cases involving all types of negative reactions.

Covidien Paritex ProGrip has thousands of microgrips. These microgrips allow the mesh to cling to the neighboring muscle (as opposed to having to use tacks and sutures). As a result, Covidien Paritex ProGrip has rough edges. This can cause it to experience tears, frays, and unravelling. Injuries as a result of Covidien Paritex ProGrip include pain, perforation, contraction, pulling and stretching of tissue, and difficulty removing. Other negative reactions include tearing, ripping, fixation issues, pre-placement and recurrence. Covidien Paritex Progrip may also fail to reduce pain. Foreign body presence has been found in Covidien Paritex Progrip as well.

Hernias occur in several different parts of the body. Different types of hernias include umbilical hernias, semilunar hernias, inguinal hernias, epigastrica hernias, incisional hernias and ventral hernias.

Plugs are used to treat groin hernias. Covidien Parietex Plug & Patch System is used for groin hernia defects. Plugs seem to have migration problems and also seem to erode quicker than other types of mesh. Migration can occur if the hernia isn’t affixed to the muscle properly and moves to different parts of the body. This Broward County Hernia Mesh Attorney handles cases involving groin hernias.

Inguinal groin hernias are often treated with a procedure called a Lichtenstein Repair, although this procedure can have negative consequences as well.
