Hernia Mesh Lawsuit 2017

Drug Watch Canada is launching an investigation into various hernia mesh products. Hernia mesh is a screen-like surgical implant used to repair hernias, a condition that occurs when an organ pushes through an opening in the muscle or tissue that holds it in place. The use of a surgical mesh is viewed by the medical community as the standard of care for hernia repair. While studies show that hernia mesh can prevent hernia recurrence, several mesh products have been recalled and patients report suffering from complications including infections, adhesions and bowel obstructions that require hernia mesh removal surgery. In fact, design defects have been discovered in a large number of hernia mesh products currently on the market.

Drug Watch Canada has created this webpage in an attempt to educate the public on the dangers of hernia mesh. Below you will find short summaries of many of the hernia mesh products we are currently investigating.

What is Surgical Hernia Mesh?

Surgical mesh is a medical device that is used to provide additional support to weakened or damaged tissue. The majority of surgical mesh devices currently available for use are constructed from synthetic materials or animal tissue. These pieces of mesh come in many sizes including patches or plugs.

Surgical mesh made of synthetic materials called polypropylene can be found in knitted mesh or non-knitted sheet forms. The synthetic materials used can be absorbable, non-absorbable or a combination of absorbable and non-absorbable materials. They can be coated with absorbable fatty acids, cellulose or collagen.

Animal-derived mesh are made of animal tissue, such as intestine or skin, that has been processed and disinfected to be suitable for use as an implanted device. These animal-derived mesh are absorbable. The majority of tissue used to produce these mesh implants are from a pig (porcine) or cow (bovine) source.

Non-absorbable mesh will remain in the body indefinitely and is considered a permanent implant. It is used to provide permanent reinforcement to the repaired hernia. Absorbable mesh will degrade and lose strength over time. It is not intended to provide long-term reinforcement to the repair site. As the material degrades, new tissue growth is intended to provide strength to the repair.

Hernia Risk Factors

Risk factors for hernias include:
  • Obesity
  • Poor nutrition
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Persistent coughing
  • Chronic straining
  • Sneezing
  • Pregnancy
  • Old age
  • Lifting heavy objects
  • Connective tissue disorders

Hernia Repair Techniques

There are three techniques that surgeons use to repair hernias with surgical mesh.
1) Transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) repair
2) Totally extraperitoneal (TEP) repair
3) Intraperitoneal onlay mesh technique (IPOM)

The most common techniques used today are the TAPP and TEP techniques.

Types of Hernias

Incisional: Typically after an old surgical incision.
Umbilical: Near the belly button.
Inguinal: In the inner groin.
Femoral: Upper thigh/outer groin or the labia.

Recurrent: Previous hernia site.
Bilateral: Both left and right sides.
Ventral: Abdominal wall.
Hiatal: Inside the abdomen and upper stomach.

Why Learning About Hernia Mesh is Important

medThe FDA continues to quickly approve untested hernia mesh products, which benefits the medical device manufacturers and hurts the general public. When a product is then shown to be defective, severely injuring thousands nationwide, the FDA is slow to take any action. The manufacturers of hernia mesh know of the life-threatening complications their products can cause, but they don't warn the public or surgeons. Educate yourself on the dangers of hernia mesh and warn those you know. There are over 100,000 hernia meshes implanted every year in the United States and 30,000 in Canada. Many have been recalled, but most of the most dangerous hernia meshes remain on the market and have not been recalled by the FDA or Health Canada. Bowel obstructions and severe infections are common complications related to hernia mesh.

Why Does Hernia Mesh Cause So Many Complications?

med What causes the complications can vary depending on the hernia mesh product. Many hernia mesh products contain a type of plastic known as polypropylene, the same material that is used to make many types of pelvic mesh and bladder slings. Here is a  Polypropylene Material Data Safety Sheet (MSDS) for a type of polypropylene used in some hernia mesh products. The MSDS notes “Prohibited Uses: Applications involving permanent implantation into the body.” However, the manufacturers of many hernia mesh products continue to use polypropylene.

Should Hernia Mesh Ever Be Used?

med Yes, there are times in which mesh needs to be utilized to repair a hernia. The larger a hernia is, the more likely a type of mesh is needed. If a mesh is required to repair the hernia, there are more than 50 different hernia mesh products to choose from. Various manufacturers utilize a wide range of materials to make their hernia mesh. These materials range from plastics to gels to pig skins. Later in this article, we will cover some of the most dangerous types of hernia mesh.

When Should Hernia Mesh Never Be Used?

Smaller hernias, such as hernias caused by laparoscopic surgery, don't require mesh to repair. Small hernias can easily be repaired with sutures by an experienced surgeon. The difficulty with hernias is they are very difficult to permanently repair. There is a high rate of hernia recurrence, both with sutures and with mesh. When sutures fail and the hernia comes back, the surgeon can usually try to stitch the hernia back up. When a mesh fails and the hernia comes back, many severe complications can occur. Also, the hernia is usually much larger after mesh failure. Abdominal tissue and muscle typically adheres to the mesh and must be removed with it.

How do Manufacturers Convince Surgeons to Use Hernia Mesh?

The manufacturers of hernia mesh products funded studies to demonstrate that there was a lower rate of hernia recurrence when hernia mesh was utilized. These studies were lacking in many ways, such as the length of time that patients were monitored after mesh implantation and what were considered "normal complications." Our hernia mesh attorneys frequently talk to victims that were implanted with mesh 10 or 15 years ago and have just recently suffered from the mesh eroding into their bowels. Hernia recurrences and complications that happen 10 years later aren't captured by the studies.

How Bad are Hernia Mesh Complications?

Unlike sutures, which have relatively few and minor possible complications, hernia mesh frequently causes life-threatening complications. Hernia mesh can erode into the bowel, requiring multiple additional surgeries, weeks of hospitalization, partial bowel removal, colostomies, and more. The mesh failure frequently causes patients to experience a systemic infection. Our lawyers have also recently observed high rates of dental infections associated with mesh failure. Many victims report all of their teeth suddenly rotting out. Even if there is a slightly lower rate of hernia recurrence when mesh is used, it doesn't justify the risk of life-threatening complications.

Hernia Mesh Injuries and Complications

Hernia mesh is used to repair both ventral hernias and inguinal hernias. Various injuries and complications can occur depending on what part of the body the mesh is placed. A coated hernia mesh is also more likely to cause injuries such as infection than a non-coated hernia mesh. The follow is a list of the array of complications our hernia mesh lawyers have observed:

  • Infection, including sepsis. An infected hernia mesh almost always requires removal.
  • Adhesions form to connect the bowel to the hernia mesh. Adhesions frequently form when ventral hernias are repaired with a coated mesh.
  • Bowel Obstruction caused by adhesion formation. Evidenced by a change in bowel habits or the inability to defecate.
  • Abdominal Pain is a sign of possible adhesion formation, a bowel obstruction, infection, or nerve damage.
  • Rashes are commonly observed in association with hernia meshes such as the C-Qur V-Patch and Ventralex ST.
  • Leg, Groin, and Testicular Pain are all common to inguinal hernias repaired with mesh. This pain can be debilitating.
  • Pain with Sex (Dyspareunia) caused from the mesh used to repair an inguinal hernia attaching to the spermatic cord.
  • Testicle Removal may be necessary if the mesh erodes far enough into the spermatic cord.
  • Diarrhea can be an early symptom of the mesh attaching to the bowel.
  • Constipation can be a sign of a bowel obstruction. You should consult a doctor if your constipation persist for several days.
  • Nausea can be an additional sign of adhesions to the bowel and stomach.
  • Seroma is a fluid capsule surrounding the mesh. Seromas can be present with and without infection.
  • Fistula. An abnormal tunnel between two structures. Our attorneys observe many fistulas connecting to the bowel, which are associated with infections.
  • Dental Problems. Our lawyers have observed a large number of clients who have lost their teeth after a hernia mesh infection.
  • Autoimmune Disorders. An alarming number of our clients have developed autoimmune disorders after being implanted with a pelvic or hernia mesh.
  • Neurological Changes. Several of our clients that have been implanted with the same type of mesh have been diagnosed with unexplained neurological changes on a CT scan.
  • Severe Headache. Typically a sign of a larger problem, such as an infection.
  • Fever. Associated with both an autoimmune response to the mesh and infection.
  • Renal Failure has been observed in those implanted with large coated meshes. The coatings are absorbable and put a great deal of strain on the kidneys.
  • Liver Abnormalities have also been documented in those implanted with coated hernia meshes. The liver is also responsible for cleansing the body.
  • Joint Aches and Pain can be caused by increased systemic inflammation due to infection and an autoimmune reaction to the mesh.
  • Abnormal Sweating can be related to an autoimmune response or to an infection.
  • Meshoma is the migration, contracture, or bunching-up of an artificial mesh. Meshomas become hard, tumor-like bodies.

When Should Hernia Mesh Never Be Used?

Any mesh with a coating is known as a composite mesh. Most of the manufacturers promote the meshes coating as a "barrier" and instruct surgeons to use the coating as a barrier. The FDA requires any "barrier" type of medical device to undergo Pre-Market Approval and pre-clinical studies to ensure the device's safety. Instead of conducting safety studies, companies just told the FDA that they wouldn't promote their hernia mesh as a "barrier." A majority of the meshes currently being used in hernia repair are untested composite meshes that have only been on the market for a few years. There is currently no reliable data on these hernia mesh products. Our hernia mesh attorneys are currently noticing a very high rate of complications associated with hernia meshes that are coated.

Big Profits Making Composite Mesh

Due to the complications that polypropylene was causing when it came in direct contact with the bowel, the demand for composite hernia mesh skyrocketed. Any company with a composite mesh could rapidly increase its nationwide market share. Mesh products were already one of the most profitable medical devices a company could manufacture, many making over $100,000,000 a year! A composite mesh also sells for approximately 15 – 20 times more than an uncoated polypropylene mesh. Suddenly, every device manufacturer rushed to get a composite mesh on the market. Many companies created and sold several different types of composite hernia mesh at the same time. If one type of composite mesh caused too many side effects, the company would simply quit manufacturing that particular composite mesh. There are currently over 350,000 hernia repairs in the United States each year.

Current Hernia Mesh Lawsuits and Investigations

There are many different hernia mesh products available, many of which are manufactured by different medical device companies. The strengths and weaknesses of a hernia mesh lawsuit are in part determined by which company manufactured the hernia mesh and the exact mesh that was utilized. Below is a list of products that our lawyers receive a large number of complaints about. Bookmark this page and check back soon, this list is growing and we continue to add more unique content every week!

Different types of Mesh: (click to see more details)


Atrium – Maquet – Getinge Group

C-Qur Hernia Mesh

The C-Qur is a composite hernia mesh that came to market in 2006, and was initially marketed by Atrium Medical Corporation. Maquet, a subsidiary of the Getinge Group, acquired Atrium in 2011 and now manufactures the C-Qur hernia mesh. The FDA has issued several warnings letters and even sued Atrium Medical Corporation for violations. Recently, the FDA shut down one of Atrium’s facilities that manufactured the C-Qur hernia mesh. In July of 2013, Health Canada issued a Medical Device Recall against coated C-Qur meshes. The reason behind the recall was that coated C-Qur meshes can adhere to packaging liner when the product is exposed to excessive humidity for an extended period of time. Atrium has only issued recalls on the C-Qur’s packaging, not on the actual C-Qur hernia mesh itself.

The C-Qur hernia mesh has an Omega-3 Fatty Acid coating that causes severe allergic reactions. The C-Qur hernia mesh is also associated with life-threatening systemic infections. Removing the C-Qur mesh is extremely difficult and can result in further injury. The C-Qur hernia mesh remains on the market, even as lawsuits continue to mount. Our hernia mesh recall lawyers continue to receive frequent complaints related to the C-Qur hernia mesh. For more information, please visit our Atrium C-Qur Hernia Mesh Lawsuit page.


Ethicon – Johnson and Johnson


The Physiomesh was withdrawn from the global market in May of 2016. Ethicon maintains that they did not recall the Physiomesh. The Physiomesh was a composite hernia mesh. Multiple studies revealed that Ethicon’s Physiomesh had high rates of complications, including subsequent hernias and additional surgeries. According to Health Canada, recurrence/reoperation rates after laparoscopic ventral hernia repair using Ethicon Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh were higher than the average rates of the comparator set of meshes among patients in the registries. Ethicon admitted that they are unable to determine why the Physiomesh is defective, or how to decrease complications for those who had a Physiomesh implanted. Part of the problem was likely that the Physiomesh had a thick coating on each side of the mesh. The thick coating prevented the Physiomesh from properly incorporating with the host tissue. Prior to removing (not recalling) the Physiomesh from the market, Ethicon created a new hernia mesh called Physiomesh Open. For more information on Physiomesh, please visit our Ethicon Physiomesh Lawsuit page.


Davol – C.R. Bard

Kugel Hernia Mesh

The Kugel hernia mesh was one of first and most well known hernia meshes to be recalled. C.R. Bard recalled several lots of the Kugel hernia patch in 2005, 2006 and 2007. The Kugel hernia mesh patch has a ring in the middle of the mesh to help it keep it’s shape. Multiple lots of the Kugel hernia mesh were recalled due to a large number of reported ring breaks. According to Health Canada, they received multiple complaint records of the PET recoil ring breaking, which could potentially lead to bowel perforation and/or chronic enteric fistulas. On February 6, 2006, Health Canada issued notice of recall effective January 9, 2006. Many patients have suffered bowel perforations as a result of the inner ring of the Kugel hernia patch breaking. Davol only recalled limited lots of the Kugel, claiming that certain lots had defective rings. Davol continues selling the Kugel hernia mesh to this day. The real problem with the Kugel hernia mesh is that it’s made of polypropylene, which shrinks over time. As the polypropylene mesh shrinks, more and more force is applied to the ring. Eventually, the ring breaks due to the shrinkage of the polypropylene. For more information on the Kugel hernia patch, please visit our Kugel hernia patch lawsuit page.



The 3DMax is a bare polypropylene mesh used to treat inguinal hernias. Many have experienced severe debilitating pain after being implanted with the Bard 3Dmax mesh. The 3DMax mesh can attach to the spermatic cord in men, causing severe testicle pain. Once the mesh is attached to the spermatic cord, there is a risk of losing the testicle when removing the mesh. Learn more at our Bard 3DMax Lawsuit page.


PerFix Plug

The PerFix Plug is another bare polypropylene mesh used to treat inguinal hernias. The PerFix plug has been observed to come unwoven over time. Many experience severe pain and difficultly exercising after being implanted with the Bard PerFix Plug. The PerFix Plug is another hernia mesh that has caused many men to loose a testicle. Learn more at our Bard PerFix Plug Lawsuit page.


Ventralex ST Hernia Mesh

Bard has a long history of creating mesh products out of polypropylene. With the Ventralex ST hernia mesh, Bard decided to add a coating similar to the coating used on the C-Qur hernia mesh. Like with the C-Qur, our hernia mesh lawyers are seeing severe inflammatory reactions to the Ventralex ST.  Bard based the Ventralex ST hernia mesh off of a prior Bard hernia mesh design, the Kugel mesh. Bard recalled several lots of the Kugel hernia mesh approximately a decade ago. Bard has yet to issue a recall on any lot of the Ventralex ST hernia mesh. Learn more at our Bard Ventralex Lawsuit page. Ventrio ST and Ventralight ST are also included in the Ventralex ST lawsuit. Health Canada issued a Medical Device Recall against Ventralight ST mesh with Echo in April, 2014. There were customer complaints of an unsealed pouch for the included, separately packaged, sterile inflation assembly and inflation adapter. These components are used together to inflate the Ventralight ST mesh with the Echo PS positioning balloon, external to the patient, but within the sterile field.


The Sepramesh was introduced to the market in 2005 by Sanofi Genzyme, formerly known as Genzyme Biosurgical. C.R. Bard bought the license to manufacture and market the Sepramesh in 2007. Bard now sells the Sepramesh through its subsidiary Davol. The Sepramesh is a composite mesh with an absorbable coating. The Sepramesh is intended to “Separate” the polypropylene from the bowel. Learn more at our Davol Sepramesh Lawsuit page.


Covidien – Medtronic

Parietex Composite Mesh

The Parietex Composite (PCO) mesh is composed of a polyester base with a resorbable collagen barrier. The resorbable collagen barrier is intended to prevent the polyester base from adhering to the patient’s bowel. Covidien touts the Parietex as a unique material that “works with the body’s natural systems.” However, many of our clients would disagree. Learn more at our Parietex Lawsuit page.



The Surgipro is a non-absorbable multi-filament polypropylene mesh. Covidien and Medtronic’s website currently has surprisingly little information on the Surgipro. Covidien issued a limited hernia mesh recall in 2010 on certain lot numbers of the Surgipro. The Surgipro hernia mesh recall was due to packing defect that compromised sterility. Surgipro is also the name of the polypropylene sutures that Covidien manufacturers. More information on Covidien’s Surgipro coming soon.


Parietex Plug and Patch System

The Parietex Plug and Patch System is made from polyester weaved together with a partially semiresorbable polylactic acid (PLA) layer. Covidien was recently acquired by Medtronic for $42 billion. Covidien is also one of many defendant mesh manufacturers in the pelvic mesh litigation. More information on Covidien’s Parietex Plug and Patch System coming soon.

Scientific Articles on Hernia Mesh

The below articles are on hernia mesh in general. Each hernia mesh subpage also contains additional case specific scientific articles.

August 2016: Evaluation of Long-Term Surgical Site Occurrences in Ventral Hernia Repair: Implications of Preoperative Site Independent MRSA Infection.
632 patients were studied for two years after being implanted with hernia mesh. 31% experienced complications within just two years. Complications included cellulitis, necrosis, nonhealing wound, seroma, hematoma, dehiscence, and fistula. Patients with a preoperative MRSA+ infection from any site (urine, blood, surgical site), might be at an elevated risk for hernia mesh complications.

August 2016: Oral, Intestinal, and Skin Bacteria in Ventral Hernia Mesh Implants.
36 patients with failed hernia mesh were studied. All participants were found to have gingivitis and 33% had infected gums and teeth. Oral bacteria was discovered on 43% of explanted hernia mesh.The study discusses the difficulty in knowing the real rate of hernia mesh infections, due to lack of standardized criteria to define infection, lack of follow-up exams, and lack of intervention when complications arise. It notes that hernia mesh infection is the most common reason for mesh removal.

June 2016: Sepramesh and Postoperative Peritoneal Adhesions in a Rat Model.
The study notes that “postoperative peritoneal adhesions occurred at the extremities of the mesh, where there was close contact between the polypropylene and viscera, or where the fixation suture was placed.”

August 2015: Previous Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus Infection Independent of Body Site Increases Odds of Surgical Site Infection after Ventral Hernia Repair.
768 patients underwent hernia repair. 10% experienced a hernia mesh infection. 33% of patients with a preoperative MRSA+ infection experienced a hernia mesh infection.

May 2014: Comparison of Outcomes of Synthetic Mesh vs Suture Repair of Elective Primary Ventral Herniorrhaphy: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.
637 hernia mesh repairs and 1145 suture repairs were compared. Hernia mesh repair was associated with a slightly lower rate of recurrence, but a higher rate of severe complications. The authors admit that “further high-quality studies are necessary to determine whether suture or mesh repair leads to improved outcomes for primary ventral hernias.”

November 2013: Coated Meshes for Hernia Repair Provide Comparable Intraperitoneal Adhesion Prevention.
Uncoated polypropylene was compared to various types of coated polypropylene placed intraperitonally via laparoscopic procedure. The uncoated polypropylene hernia mesh resulted in significantly more adhesions.

October 2013: Biologic Meshes are Not Superior to Synthetic Meshes in Ventral Hernia Repair: An Experimental Study with Long-Term Follow-Up Evaluation.
The study notes that “In laparoscopic incisional hernia repair, direct contact between the prosthesis and the abdominal viscera is inevitable, which may lead to an inflammatory reaction resulting in abdominal adhesion formation.” The authors advise additional research is necessary, and to be wary of short-term experimental results on laparoscopically placed hernia mesh.

October 2013: Intra Peritoneal Polypropylene Mesh and Newer Meshes in Ventral Hernia Repair: What EBM Says?
The authors are concerned about using polypropylene mesh (PPM) for laparoscopic hernia repair. They question if paying 15-20 times more for a composite mesh is worth it. The study notes “Complications of intraperitoneal PPM (adhesions, infection, intestinal fistulization, sinus formation, seroma and recurrence) can occur with the newer mesh also. There is no statistically significant difference in the incidence of these complications between these meshes.”

August 2012: Ventral Hernia Repair with Synthetic, Composite, and Biologic Mesh: Characteristics, Indications, and Infection Profile.
The study notes that polypropylene “is unsuitable for intra-abdominal placement because of its tendency to induce bowel adhesions.”

August 2011: Complications of Mesh Devices for Intraperitoneal Umbilical Hernia Repair: A Word of Caution.
The surgeons note experiencing serious complications in several patients implanted with a composite mesh. Injuries included small bowel resections and mesh removal. The study notes “We think that, if preperitoneal deployment of such mesh devices is possible, this should be the preferred position, notwithstanding the fact that these meshes have a dual layer. There is a complete lack of convincing data on these mesh devices in the medical literature. No long-term data have been published, and, for three of the four mesh devices available, no publications on their use in humans were found.”

July 2011: Mesh Infection in Ventral Incisional Hernia Repair: Incidence, Contributing Factors, and Treatment.
The study discusses the need for a better identification, classification and reporting systems for hernia mesh infections. It notes part of the difficulty is that hernia mesh implants have a tendency to remain dormant for long periods of time. It can take years before a hernia mesh infection is identified.

June 2009: The Problem of Mesh Shrinkage in Laparoscopic Incisional Hernia Repair.
Laparoscopic hernia repair requires expanding the abdomen with approximately 3 liters of gas. The surface area of the abdominal wall is stretched by about 80% during laparoscopic repair. Surgeons must anticipate significant mesh shrinkage in laparoscopic hernia repair. Mesh shrinkage remains one of the unsolved problems of laparoscopic incisional hernia repair.

How Does the FDA Learn About Hernia Mesh Complications?

If a hernia mesh fails within a few years and the same surgeon that implanted the mesh removes the mesh, the surgeon will sometimes report the complication to the manufacturer. It is then the manufacturers duty to determine if the complication warrants notifying the FDA. Through our investigations, our lawyers have uncovered that many manufacturers fail to report adverse events related to hernia mesh to the FDA. Surgeons will also occasionally file adverse event reports directly to the FDA, but the process is very time consuming. As a result, the FDA is only aware of a very small percentage of total hernia mesh complications. The manufacturers of hernia mesh then cite to low rates of hernia mesh complications reported to the FDA as evidence that hernia mesh is safe!

Are There Other Ways to Report Hernia Mesh Complications?

If you have suffered hernia mesh complications, you can alert Health Canada. You can also alert Health Canada by filing a hernia mesh lawsuit against the manufacturer of the mesh. When a manufacturer is notified of a pending hernia mesh lawsuit, the manufacturer must report the basis of the hernia mesh lawsuit to Health Canada. Medical device companies are allowed too much discretion as to whether they must notify Health Canada when a surgeon reports a hernia mesh adverse event. The medical device companies do not have discretion on reporting a hernia mesh lawsuit to Health Canada. The companies must report every single hernia mesh lawsuit to the proper body.

Make a Difference: Spread the Word About the Dangers of Hernia Mesh!

The hernia mesh industry is one of the most lucrative medical device markets and is controlled by the most powerful medical device and pharmaceutical companies on the planet! This is not going be an easy or short fight, but an increase in public awareness will only help. Drug Watch Canada has received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback regarding the information provided on our website on different types of hernia mesh. Numerous people nationwide have called us and thanked us for warning them about the dangers of polypropylene hernia mesh and preventing them from undergoing implantation. We are also going to start going more in-depth on the problems with hernia mesh and start going over the actual documents that are available to the public (documents obtained through discovery are confidential).

How You Can Help Spread the Word!

Thanks for your help spreading the word on the dangers of hernia mesh and polypropylene! The hernia mesh market is a highly profitable (criminal) enterprise that the medical device manufacturers are going to great lengths to defend. It's important that the public learns WHY there are hernia mesh lawsuits, not just that there are hernia mesh lawsuits. Just because a mesh is "new" doesn't mean it's safe!
