Two of the largest hernia mesh manufacturers are Atrium and Ethicon. Both have been named in many lawsuits that allege the companies knew the risks of their hernia mesh products, yet failed to warn doctors and patients about the potential health hazards. The specific names of these products are Atrium’s C-QUR and Ethicon’s Physiomesh. Though both were granted approval by the FDA, there is evidence that the companies were aware they could break into pieces, rupture, obstruct bowels, or even cause severe infections.

If you have experienced complications from any hernia mesh product, please know that you are not alone, you have rights, and you may be entitled to compensation for the harm you’ve suffered.

Why Is This Happening?

One of the biggest reasons this is happening is that many hernia mesh devices didn’t undergo rigorous testing. There are many similar products on the market that already carry FDA approval, so many hernia mesh products weren’t required to go through the usual testing models.

Because of this, dangers that may normally have been caught were overlooked, and many people have been injured and suffered long-term complications as a result. There have been a number of recalls, and recent evidence indicates that the manufacturers may have known about the dangers and failed to issue warnings.

How Many People Have Been Affected?

It is reported that approximately one million hernia surgeries are performed in the United States every year. Hernia mesh is often a device used in these surgeries to reinforce the area where the hernia is located.

When these devices malfunction, it can cause serious complications that lead to life-altering and even deadly conditions. Currently, there are over 50,000 lawsuits pending regarding hernia mesh problems.

If you or a loved one have suffered complications after having hernia mesh implanted, don’t wait to join the thousands of others who have taken action against the manufacturers of these dangerous devices. You deserve justice.

Manufacturers Failed to Warn About Health Risks

Plaintiffs are claiming that the manufacturers of hernia mesh knew that the devices they were putting on the market were dangerous and failed to issue proper warnings of the potential risks. Had they done so, doctors and patients would’ve likely been better able to make an informed choice for treatment. When medical device companies act irresponsibly and put profits before the interests of patients, they must be held responsible.
